The Spinning Wheel Repair Book

First of all I want to let everyone know everything is fine here, because I haven’t posted recently I have been receiving a lot of inquiries.  I have been busy finishing up my next book on Spinning Wheel Repair.

Here is a mock up of the hand set type title page, still in need some adjustment, it is being done by a friend.  The forward was written by a friend.  I am having the cover art finished up by another friend and one more technical part being done by another friend, thank goodness for friends.

  4. Stephen, I only just found your blog. I’m a writer of books on LDS history and doctrine and I’m currently writing one about the Mormon Handcarts and how they were made. I have Steve Pratt’s excellent booklet in paperback and also online and I have copies of the letters from Brigham Young describing how they were made. I also have Leroy Hafen’s book that you took your information from.

    I saw your sketch of the 1856 handcart and was impressed with your understanding of how it was made. I will add that paper to my files and use the sketch to help me draw my own version in AutoCad.

    Thanks for your work on this.
    Best Regards,
