Fantastic John Westlake Spinning Wheel
Well the time has come to part with this fantastic wheel, by far the most spectacular wheel I have ever had. This is a custom made,(as were everyone of his wheels)double drive wheel, 19" flywheel, moveable mother of all, I believe the wheel is made of myrtle wood, the bobbins besides being very good sized (4.5 x 3 inch) are lovely. The wheel comes with 8 bobbins, 3 whorls, and a very nice arched kate. This wheels weights 16lbs, is easily picked up with one hand, fits nicely into the front seat of my car and seat belts in just great. Tandem treadle, weighted wheel. This wheel is pretty darn near effortless to spin on. The machining on this wheel is just so perfect. The wheel does have a scotch tension rig, but I do not have any of those types of bobbins.
One fantastic wheel, I am asking $2,000 for this wheel and am willing to ship, I will remove the mother of all for shipping, and I ship fed ex.Price reduced to 1800$
