Rick Reeves was a talented spinning wheel maker. I have owned three of his wheels and loved them all but love this wheel and my little flax wheel the best. This wheel is Norwegian style with a flat table and four legs. It has a single wide treadle so you can spin on it regardless of how you draft - to the right or the left. The flyer is on the left hand side.
I am very sad to let this wheel go but I just bought a new Wyatt wheel so I need to rehome a couple of my wheels. This beauty spins and spins. I have used it to demonstrate spinning to tour groups here at the studio. It's an impressive wheel to watch spin.
