This weekend I acquired a well loved Louet S10. 





Its about 25yrs old and over all looks to be in good order.  I should note at this point that I've never used or owned a spinning wheel.  All my spinning has been with a drop spindle before my toddler discovered my stash of roving.  That being said according to Google I have a very good new best friend.



So far I can identify only one broken part.  It looks like the footman to treadle connector, but of course knowing essentially nothing about spinning wheels I was hoping one of you kind and better informed craftsters could confirm that for me before I start ordering pieces.  And I gladly welcome another other bits of advise you might have to offer!!

Is there a screw on on the footman and treadle that holds the connector in place? or is it solidly in there?  (I'm not fully versed in the Louet, but do know that my 2 wheels have screws that hold the connectors in) 

Oh. Look!  Check this page out.  http://www.louet.com/spinning_weaving/sa_common.shtml

You can see that those parts are available, directly from louet, and you should be able to take it apart and replace it!

There are the screws at the back of the footman and treadle, and thanks so much for the link!  Looks like the only thing broken is that connector, sweet!!  Now to see if I can find a local reseller =)  Thanks so much for your help!
