Wheel parts and progress:
Hardware, leather, lazy susan for my source of rotation without excess friction
My wheel and whorl pieces cut out! I made my wheel out of 3 separate rounds, the center one 1/2" smaller. My diameter is 16", and my ratios are approx. 2:1, 4:1, and 6:1
My wheel and whorl, glued together and wood finished green! Also, the footman, two stir sticks gl;ued together.
My bobbin, a wire spool, 10.5" long and in diameter. My flyer/orifice, 1.5" PVC
Making progress! Trying to be done by early July. heh heh.
