No, perhaps I should, thank you. That's the first time I hear of this website. I'll give it a go...

This wheel looks like a good buy for someone.

Just to let you know, however, that Winghams now offer an 'If you find it cheaper...' deal on Ashford wheels, and at the time of writing, their price for the current model (which is double treadle, double drive & scotch tension, as standard), lacquered, is 380, including free shipping and a 15 voucher for fibre.

Edited to say you will sell this if you advertise on Ravelry.

Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

Thanks for letting me know. I'm going to amend the asking price... Perhaps someone would be interested at 250?

Did you find a home for this wheel?  I've only just found the site and looking for wheels for the spinning group here in Orkney

Hi, I'm wondering if this wheel is still for sale? I live close to Turriff nearer to Huntly. Very interested. Only just found this site. Many thanks, just on the off chance it's still available!

As this post is over a year old, it may be easier to get in touch with the seller by pm. Not sure if this person is still a regular on the forum, but a pm should get through to their email address.
