Ettrick Standard spinning wheel from the 1980s

These Spinning on the Standard Instructions refer to my Ettrick Wheel which was made in the 1980s. Mr Norman Walters from Ettrick stresses ‘that over the years there have been three different techniques for attaching the flyer pulley. Left hand thread, bayonet fitting and right thread. Some newcomers to my wheel may inadvertently damage a bayonet fitting if they try to unscrew it.’

In other words please make sure you know what you’re doing when you read these instructions.

This is another lot of information I received with my wheel.
