« Part 1: Let the head scratching begin!! Part 2 of Spinning wheel series Part 3: Turning the Mother of all »

After some hard work and careful measuring, the carrier pin is in place and the tension screws working properly. After turning the screw and pin, I was able to use my 7/8” tap and die to complete these parts and set them in place. I made the carrier pin from Oak because of the wear and tear it will take. All other parts have been turned from cherry. Next step is to complete the large wheel

Steve, this might just be your crowning glory in terms of project difficulty. I wouldn’t even know where to start. Good luck!
