You guys will never believe what I found! An upright swift for, are you ready...$25! OMG...I am so glad I kept procrastinating on my purchase. You can see a picture HERE (http://www.weaversguildcincinnati.org/used_equip.htm). It is towards the bottom of the page.

I think I am in :heart: :heart: :heart:

I've never seen one like that. I don't think I would have even known it was a swift! Good find! :thumbsup:

I wasn't 100% sure it was a swift when I first saw it since they called it a squirrel cage. I googled it though and sure enough it is an upright swift...I knew it by that boring name :)

Does it turn easily? Can you use it with a ball winder? That's an AWESOME find!

I can't believe it has taken me this long to show you the swift! Needs some WD40, but of course I had to try it IMMEDIATELY. It's really going to help a lot...my DH hates to be my human swift.

It was a good find and would be relatively easy to make...now that I've seen it in person.
