Help with my Ashford Traditional
Hey guys! I just picked up my ashford traditional from my mom's and there is just one part that isn't right for it to spin. It is the little pin that goes into the wheel and through the axle (the small holes) to stablize it. The problem is that the pin is stuck, and isn't aligned properly. Any one have any tricks on getting this in there properly? I checked out the ashford site, and saw how it is supposed to be, but can't figure out how to get it there. The pin in in so tight, I can't seem to get it to move. any help very welcome!

I'd try spraying it with WD40, then tapping it out by inserting a smaller diameter rod, like a nail or something, and tapping it with a hammer.

If you need help call Paradise Fibers and ask for Bill. I've had to call about my traddy since it was missing the tension bits and the conrod, part from the treadle to the wheel, wasn't working right.
