Can any spinners out there help?
So I have my new Ashford Traveller Double treadle spinning wheel, but I confess I am not sure I have it setup right ....
The bit I don't understand is the Flyer, bobbin, drive band & break setup. Here's how I started with it.
Here's the thing, my flyer & bobbin don't match those in the assembly instructions.
My flyer doesn't have the stepped end next to the oriface. Its at the other end.
And my bobbin's have a stepped end, unlike the ones in the instructions
Now I originally had the break on the stepped end of the bobbin, but since the break thread length is 32cm between the springs that just didn't work. I had to put the break on the other end - Is that right ???
Also in the instructions the drive band is at the other end of the flyer.
But the stepped "cap" I have doesn't have a hole in it so I can't put on the other end
An educated guess says I have this the right way round, the drive band on the right thing (the cap) and the break on the right end of the bobbin.
But, since I am a complete novice at this - does anyone know if I have this right or not??
