I'm wanting to make a spinning wheel.
I've got plans for a Great Wheel with a tapered spindle in one of the Foxfire books but I want a treadle with double drive.

I can figure out everything but the flyer and bobbin easy enough. I don't want to pay for plans when I know somewhere out there is a copy of an old book by someone like Ben Franklin with the real designs. I'd gladly pay for that book if I ever find it.

I guess if I never find it I'll order some plans.

Good luck.
