I originally purchased this book when I bought my spinning wheel in the early 80's. It provided me with a good information source and detailed equipment and processes for the working of fibers, in my case I was spinning collie hair and I used the diagrams to make some of my own equipment. Included are wheel makers and designs other than the traditional wheel. I'm sure some are no longer in business but you can see some of the options. If you can find this text it is well worth obtaining and gives tips and options that would be good to have before starting a spinning hobby.
