The footman attaches to make the wheel spin. It is usually attached with leather on 1 end and the other end is attached to metal usually. My mind has gone blank to the names all is called. Try to get the wheel spinning if it does then the other is easy to make as I use cotton twine for my drive belt. I learned also to check the wheel to make sure its not warped. Yes its a good deal as long as you dont have to replace alot. I also use oil in many places, not too much just enough to get the squeak out.
