Louet S10 spinning wheel with skeiner

Louet S10 Spinning Wheel

Keen recycler Dean has restored this S10 single-treadle, single-drive wheel. He says,

I found this spinning wheel and it was covered in dust. The treadle connector was in need of replacing. So I ordered a new part and fitted it. The Spinning wheel works perfectly now. It has three bobbins and a skeiner that is also made by Louet attached to the top of the frame. I cleaned it and waxed it with beeswax and now it is ready for a new home. I restore and recycle many things.

More information and pictures at Dean's blog.

£275 with skeiner would like to send by carrier.
