Thanks quirky. I'm not sure if this is a 'branded' wheel. Others suggested that this is a handcrafted item that may be using some Louet parts, it runs really smoothly, when I keep it going in the same direction
Best of all, it's really aesthetically pleasing to us, so DH didn't have a probem with me buying it!
Once I get the hang of it (being optimistic here) I will fill you in on how I like it.
