    Very nice, ITW, Oh and Happy belated birthday:). My good friend is a spinner , teaches classes, she has even made material out of dog fur. Sounds strange but when its finished it looks great.

    Made three more since but this is the grand finale, it`s called a pendlum spinning wheel and was a improvement to the great walking wheel so ya could sit and spin.

    The pendulum is controlled with the foot board to move it away from the spinner while the twist is from turnning the wheel.
