I have most of the tools and access to the wood but I am not THAT ambitious

Downloaded these plans and had nothing but a hassle, so finally printed them off as they were posted up in image form. BONUS. Only thing I see wrong with these plans is the lack of detail around the orifice area...or rather lack thereof! Did some of the antique wheels just draw direct from the closest heck(hook) on the flyer to the spinner? or is there some detail missing to this plan?
I'm all geared up to build my own with a drive similar to the Spinolutions wheel with a modern look akin to old Irish Castle style wheels. Comments? Remarks? Suggestions?

Spinning wheel prices
I definitely applaud your attempt to make a wheel. I couldn't do it! Several years ago I raised a small flock of Romney sheep and did spinning. Have been away from it awhile and nearly sold my wheel (a Haldane wheel from Scotland that isn't made anymore) but after seeing the prices of new ones no way would I part with it. If your attempts to make one are unsuccessful, look for sales and save your money! My old wheel cost $150 and it was new. New ones are incredibly expensive.

Don't know if Arden's question was meant for me or who? No I have one wheel I will never part with!
