Spinning Wheel parts

Just posting a picture to show the progress of the first order.  The customer opted for 2 additional bobbins [saved shipping costs] to bring the total to three.  Still waiting for the machinist to finish up the mandrel, then fitting it up and installing the hooks.

The three shafts for the bobbins can not be turned until the mandrel arrives for proper sizing of their length.

I am going to cut the square mortise in the whorl a bit deeper and will be casting the pewter nut on the mandrel for a perfect match, will post pictures of this when it happens.  First post on grain orientation.  Parts may be ordered here.
