HI all
I was hoping some one might help me with my new wheel Iv been spinning for a while on my drop spindle and have tones of beautifull roving so im sure yhou can imagin how delighted I was to recive a spinning wheel for Yule!
It is much quicker and I love it but I mostly use thick chunky and extra chunky yarn and Im having rediculouse dificulty with it over spinning  it seems I do 2 peddles or so and then have to park n drive but my arms wont reach the end of the spin Iv got all the setting set right I think im afraid that its the wheel itself please any body know what Im doing wrong how I can possibly keep up with the wheel whilst making fat yarn?

What type of wheel? Is it a single drive w/scotch tension, or a double drive?  The brand might even help us out solving your problem! Don't get to frustrated yet.  Sounds like your take up or break tension isn't tight enough.  but I can't be sure without more info.

You need to treadle more slowly and set your wheel so the take up on the bobbin is quicker.
