I bought this spinning wheel at the flea market for a grand total of $20, but I'm pretty clueless about it. I'd love to know what kind of wheel it was so I could buy new cords for it and all so I can use it. If anyone has any idea I'd love to hear it!

There's no markings on it except for who gave it to who, woodburned into the underside. The date was 2005, if that helps. Thanks in advance!

It's a Saxony wheel.

I can't tell from the picture if the Mother of All moves on the bench from the handle behind the bench (it should screw in and out moving the M-O-A).

The drive (big) wheel is on backwards and the pitman arm (from the drive wheel to the treadle) is missing.

Thanks! I'm going to go look and see what parts I can get for it. Smiley
