How to join a ply-cord belt

PEACOCK SPINNING WHEEL

If you follow our simple instructions it will take you only a few minutes to put your Peacock Spinning Wheel together. Please read the instructions carefully before commencing.

Note: The finish on the native Silver Beech hardwood is Danish Oil, as the oil will soak into the wood to protect it, further coats of a Similar Scandinavian type oil may be applied.


ASSEMBLY:

Step 1. Locate the main upright into the base and secure with a washer and wingnut from underneath. Check that the wheel is parallel with the front of the base.

Step 2. Thread the brass crank onto the end of the main shaft. Tighten firmly and check the crank is in a 3 o'clock* position. The counterweight in the wheel will offset the weight of the treadle and permit a convenient start to spinning.

Step 3. Thread the cup hooks into the flyer arms, a little candle wax on the them will make this easier.

Step 4. Place a bobbin on the flyer shaft then thread on flyer. A smear of vaseline or drop of light oil will ensure the bobbins rotate freely.

Step 5. Locate the flyer head in the best position onto the main upright and secure with a washer and wind Vote - there is a need of adjustment to tighten the drive belt as necessary.

Step 6. Thread a cup hook into either side of the horizontal dowel.

Step 7. Thread the nylon line through the tension knob and tie a knob. Attach the tension spring to the other end of the line.

Step 8. Hook the tension spring onto the left hand cup hook, pass the nylon over the bobbin end under the other cup hook and locate the tension knob into position.

Step 9. Locate the 3 bobbin storage.

Insert the pins into the wholes of the base and place the bobbins in position.
