Thanks!!  As to getting them round I made a template with old cereal boxes, and carefully stenciled the shape on then adjusted where needed Smiley  No way I could ever freehand those!!

LOL you're welcome!   totally understandable.... Hate to break it by accident before you even get to use it... i've found it nearly indestructible.  My children have yanked, cranked and tipped it over onto themselves multiple times, and it has yet to fail me.  It's a great wheel... now to ask for a lace kit and a double treadle kit for christmas..... along with the drum carder......

okay, so that's what a top view of it looks like, right?  see the right most portion, where the shaft (that's my technical term) of the flyer comes out the bobbin and onto the holder upper thingy?  you should beable to just lift the shaft directly up.  It'll feel stiff, like it doesn't want to let go, but it will.

at one end (the back) you should be able to lift the flyer up and pull the bobbin off, and replace it with another.   Mine is still kinda stiff when I remove a bobbin, I'm guessing yours is too.  
For the lazy Kate, you just stick the bobbins on there, grab your singles and spin in the Opposite direction then what you have spun.  With the traveler it's not tensioned, so you have to pay close attention to what you are doing when you ply.
If you want to keep a single, I find it easier to put the yarn onto the niddy noddy while the bobbin is still on the flyer.  I loosen the brake band all the way, but it gives just enough tension so I don't get tangles in my yarn before it gets to the niddy noddy.

 I hope that all makes sense and is helpful....

I've seen people torch their work in turkish rug making
(ie, big blowtorch that burns off the fuzzies)

Or take a disposable razor to it, and shave off the fuzzies ^_^

I'd be so afraid of setting it completley alight!!  but I do have disposable razors that could to the trick Smiley  Thanks!

oh and it may need starching.... it's turned out a bit weak on the bottom....  Undecided

ooh lindyv321 thanks for that link!

and I just thought of this,  Littlepooky, you should open an etsy and sell your stuff, like the .pfd's you make.... I bet you'd make a killing.

tighten your break band!  Just a tiny bit of a turn.  also make sure your break band has 2 springs on it.  this is what I know from my own experience.  other then that I wish I could just come over with my traveler and spipn with you!
