Another one saved! Hopefully she will soon be in spinning shape again…
We got her from a lovely lady in Sudbury. The wheel was her great grandmother’s (on her father’s side) and has been in storage for years. The seller’s husband wanted to THROW IT OUT!!!
So, you see, we saved her in the nick of time!
Pretty sure I’ll be taking out the screws shortly. I just need to figure out if it’s best to take them out first and then oil the wheel or oil and then remove. I’m thinking the first option but waiting for advice from those that know before I begin! She’s been through enough already.
I’ll be replacing the missing spokes, either with old ones (if I can find them) or with new ones – we’ll see 🙂
Her flyer is beautiful but needs a little work…
She’s going to need a little tlc but I think she’s going to be just perfect, when she’s done 🙂
