It's an Ashford Traveller, double drive, single treadle.
I bought this wheel in 1990. We finished it with tung oil and I love the glow.
I bought a sterling silver orifice hook for it a few years ago. You can just see it hanging from the tension knob by a blue ribbon. That orifice hook makes me happy.
I've spun some nice yarn on this wheel.
This weekend I'm teaching a spinning class at White Violet Center at St. Mary of the Woods College, just outside Terre Haute, Indiana. The girls and I are headed up there this afternoon. It's one of our favorite places to be.
