My old girl…

Just realized that my Great Wheel is 163 years old. It still works. Will my Schacht work perfectly after 163 years old? Hope so!


Shotgun shell spokes are so pretty.

      I have wanted one for about 15 years and finally found one that works. I was lucky as the seller was going to Wyoming and she was able to deliver it from Ohio. :) Just had to wait 10 months.

    We just boight a spinning wheel that looks like the one that is 163 years old. How much are they worth? It looks identical to it. We paid $150.00 at an auction. I just loved it and proud to have it.

      That is a fair price. If it is a working wheel and has all the original parts it would be worth more. I hope yours is a working wheel and you use it?

        Congratulations! He got a good deal. You can look up more info at the Working Wheels group on Ravelry. They can give you info on how to safely clean it. Good luck!
