Cyndi is yours a double drive or single drive travie? Mine is double drive. Is it just me or does the double drive require me to take the mother of all base off as the whorls are in the front instead of in the back. I could not get it to work like a single drive, which would require only changing the maiden. Hence I need a screw driver to unscrew the base plate. Or just leave it unscrewed and pop it off. (Either way, it was a great excuse to get another wheel.
I'm a lazy spinner. So the Lendrum makes everything effortless and I love it for that aspect. The Travie will be used for regular flyer and for plying at home. It will also look pretty in the living room, so I'm still satisfied with it.
I do plan on writing up reviews of the Ashford Traveller Double Drive DT and Lendrum. I'm just gonna spin on the Lendrum a while longer before posting it. I will also put up a review of the Pat Green drum carder, but it's the only carder I've used so I don't have much experience to compair it with anything.
