Louet S-71 Spinning Wheel For Sale – Includes 3 large capacity bobbins and detachable 52” windmill skeiner. Oak.
The wheel has been gently used and well cared for, and looks like new. It has a lovely grain. There are no nicks, scratches or dings; no loose joints, nor any other defects. It does not need any refurbishment or parts.
The detachable windmill skeiner is a slightly darker wood than the wheel (you will see this in the photos). This skeiner attaches directly to the wheel by use of a knob (see photos), so the yarn goes from bobbin to skein easily (not the standalone skeiner that Louet currently manufactures).
It has a single-treadle, but the configuration of the wheel is such that it’s easy to treadle with either the left or right foot. Treadling is smooth and easy, and well balanced. Flyer hooks and orifice are large, to accommodate almost any spinning weight.
This vintage style is no longer produced. The wheel with its turned wood pieces shows off the beautiful grain in the wood.
Price $550, includes wheel, skeiner, and 3 bobbins.

I have a 40″four harness loom I no longer use and would love someone else to enjoy. Would sell for a fair price.
4 Harness Floor Loom, 6 Treadles
Dimensions and pictures available on request. Warp beam brakes are friction, both friction wheels released with a single pedal. The maximum fabric production width is 40″; The tie-up is pushrod requiring heel on treddle to initiate rising shed.

We have 6 boat shuttles, extra pushrods and tubes (all aluminum), a pot-pourri of yarns, 4 larger shuttles, warpping board, sectional pieces for the warp beam (stainless steel pegs), a very nice weaving bench that I did not make (not sure of manufacturer) and lots of extra heddles.

My wife and I used this loom for many years but not at all within the past 10 years. I spent many hours this past week to make sure everything is in good working order. It could be fun for someone who has decided to make the jump to a floor loom.

Any ideas about who we should contact to sell this would be appreciated.

Wanted:
Hello, I’m a resident of Brighton, Colorado and I’ve been a crocheter/knitter for 4 years now, but I’m moving into spinning! I started on a drop spindle, purchased an antique wheel, and now I’m looking to buy a more modern wheel (prefer to keep the antique is quality shape…it’s a beaut!).

I’ve been looking high and low for a wheel for two weeks now with no luck. I was told that guild members often have wheels for sale, so I was hoping to see if any of your guild members may have a wheel they’re willing to part with that have the following qualities:

(Listed in order of importance)

1) capable of making fine to medium weight yarn
2) more than one bobbin, or can get one made easily.
3) $300- $400
4)double treadle
5)compact/easy to get away from kiddos
6)castle set up
