Hmmm, well I think I'd go looking for a flier for that one. I've been studying the structure of the wheels I have and others, and I think that if you have the basic wheel, you can probably find a flier to go on it. It may not be from the same maker, but I bet you could make it functional nonetheless. I've been talking with folk who took a flier and a sewing machine motor, mounted both on a little platform, added a foot control, and "boom" instant electric wheel. Also people who mounted a flier on an old sewing machine treadle's guts. Yours with a replacement flier would look much more traditional than those.

Hey, it'd be fun to try, wouldn't it?

I have 2, both Kromskis. My first was the Symphony and the second is the Sonata. I also have a Golding Tsunami drop spindle. Bought the Symphony before I knew how to spin, just knew that I HAD to do it. Been spinning for 2 years. Now I've started taking weaving lessons - got to continue on the process. Beginning to think fiber is my obsession, not hobby.

Well, I know I am not in the minority, but I still feel guilty everytime I say this . . . I have four! A Majacraft Rose (my first baby and still a favorite), a Jensen Tina II (absolute favorite) a Reeves Frame wheel, and a Roberta Erotel. . .

with a Betty Roberts wheel on the way, I will be selling the Erotel wheel I think!

Oooh, a Betty Roberts! Please post some pics when you get it. Those are beautiful wheels.

And, don't feel guilt - I have 29 wheels and still have a "wish list".
