Hello, I was wondering if anyone can help a friend of mine with a problem.
She just recently got a Jensen Tina and has filled all her bobbins with tons of singles. Now she wants to go back and ply her singles. (Spun clockwise, trying to ply counterclockwise) Unfortunately she is not having a lot of success. From her description of the process she is doing all the steps right but apparently she is getting no pull. When she spins clockwise it will pull in the yarn and spins fine, nothing when she goes counterclockwise.
In addition to all this, She said that the whorl comes unscrewed too. I think this may be a set up problem with the type of wheel she has. I should say, I'm sure she put it together well but I seem to remember reading somewhere that this particular wheel (or maybe a different one) had this problem with the whorl and plying until it was adjusted. I just can't find that information. So far I have done several google searches, a knitters review and a spinningfiber livejournal community search and cant find much on the Jensen Tina.
Could some dear craftster out there please assist us!
