I buy things, thinking they will be useful for handspinning and then I don't use them because, as they are, they are useless. They need to change or I need to change, so they sit and wait for change to happen.
I combed some more Hampshire wool with Viking combs. As I unclamped the Indigo Hound pad, I realized that I could use it to support a toy wheel as I drove a dowel through with a hammer. The hardwood dowel and toy wheel are from Lee Valley Tools and they are a tight fit. I got a dozen of each.
Next I need to see about a hook to complete the drop spindle.
