There were other things that needed to be done before it was ready to use. The wheel had to be glued back together and the flier had a crack that also needed glueing. Then a new drive band and it was ready to take for a spin. I think this wheel will do nicely for what I was looking for but you know what? It is heavy!
One other thing I forgot to mention is that some of the parts are not origonal to the wheel. The maidens are darker than the rest of the wheel and have a shiny finish. They don't really fit the holes well either. I had to do a bit of sanding on one to get it to stay in place.
I am taking this wheel to Martin's Station in Wilderness Road State Park in Ewing, Va. the second weekend of October. If you are in the neighborhood and would like a closer look stop on by!
I am so glad I got to post this week! Blogger has not been letting me post.
