Yupp, it's an addition . . . Cheesy  My third.  Although to be honest, I wouldn't have bought the second one if I'd known I was going to buy this one!  My first was my 21st present from mum, my second I bought for the double treadle and this one is definitely the last wheel I will ever need to buy.  Mostly because I no longer have room and, eventually, I will inherit my mother's 8  Shocked

Anyway, on to the pics (I worked out how to download them, yes!):

The newest wheel (ain't she purdy? Cheesy):

Sorry it's sideways!

Side view:

The light in our house is crap, sorry folks.

Action shot:


First skein of handspun on new wheel:
  The coin is AU$0.05, slightly larger than a dime and slightly smaller than a nickel.  The round thing is my sugar bowl Cheesy  Just for some perspective, ya know?
The skein is navajo plied (3 ply) lace weight and about 30g and 160ish metres.  I haven't measured the wraps per inch yet but it's LOVELY.  Really soft Cheesy  I was worried that it would be harsh because it's so fine, but not a problem.

And the current bobbin is being used for camel hair tops which I will be plying with some moorat fleece I have I think.  Or maybe some superfine (17 micron!) tops that I have as well.  See how super soft I can make that skein!
