Ps. @clothmama - it's called a lathe! My dad has one in his workshop in the garden! They are so handy!

Thank you :oops: It's far easier than it looks. I'll let you know a bit more about that possibly delusional feeling once I've tackled something a little more difficult :giggle:

I thought I'd experiment with making Tory some spinning wheel parts and possibly a whole wheel eventually if I am capable. My first effort will be rather more modest. I am going to try to make a drop spindle as I have some plans in one of Tory's spinning mags.

Using a spinning machine to make a spinning machine - I like that :)
