« Part 7: Glued up and spinning straight and true Part 8 of Spinning wheel series Part 9: Yes!! It is turning!! »

“Turned” the lights back on tonight after a few days off visiting the family I’m Minnesota. Tonight I worked on the treadle, the treadle bar, and the footman. They are roughed out and ready for the wheel spindle. Hoping to get the wheel spinning this week.

The footman is the vertical piece that will attach to the treadle

Here you can see the Footman, Treadle, and Treadle bar roughed out.

A view from the other side. It sure is fun but challenging!!

Thanks for taking a look!!

Steve, this is a very complex machine and you are more than doing it justice at every turn.
