Soo ... higher or lower??
Well it was marked at $169 but I talked her down to $140 because of the broken flyer. The orifice is like 5/8 in, so yeah it is probably a flax wheel, but I plan to try alpaca and wool on it this summer. The next step in my repair process is to glue on the flyer arm, but probably not with Gorilla glue, it's too foamy. I'll try to find a more traditional type of wood glue.
Where is this woodworker located? I have someone that my parents know in mind, but I'm not sure if she has ever made bobbins before, so having another artist (or five) is always welcome!
