I tied the repaired footman on, watched a video on how to put on a drive band for a double drive wheel, et voila!

The wheel spins very nicely. I’m working on adjusting the takeup for the sweet spot, as I’ve never used a double drive wheel before.

A little more practice, and I’ll try flax on it! I love this wheel so much already…

If you want to see how I got to this point, go back to the first post in this series…

Hi Grayson! I’m so glad I found your posts, I was gifted a JOS wheel a couple years ago and haven’t been able to find any information about it. I decided to try Googling again today and there you were! I live in the Twin Cities, so it’s so heartwarming to learn that my wheel was made in Lindstrom, a place I’ve visited before. And now I know where to get extra bobbins for my wheel!

    I’m so glad I was able to help! I’m delighted you found my posts useful. Enjoy your wheel, I love mine!

      Where did you get information on the JOS manufacturer? Was it from the person who gifted you the wheel, or did you find other sources? I’d love to know more about them but I’m not much of a historian and my basic Google skills aren’t bringing anything up.

        I got it from a group devoted to antique wheels. I’ll see if I can find out more.
