bit the bullet... ordered a spinning wheel


Schacht Matchless Spinning Wheel

Made in the U.S. of hard maple and walnut and finished with a Danish oil, the Schacht Matchless spinning wheel comes to you assembled. It includes a Lazy Kate (the "Industrious Kate"), 2 whorls, 4 bobbins and an adjustable carrying strap which makes it handy to transport. It features self-aligning bronze bearings and double drive with alternate scotch tension option. Wheel diameter: 191/2"; Orifice: 3/8"; Ratios: 9:1, 11:1, 13:1 and 15.5:1.

It's backordered... but I should see it in about a month!

Got the double treadle!
