It Works! It Works! It Really, Really Works!

After much fiddling and lots and lots of... ummm, how shall we put this... unorthodox do-it-yourself fixing, the new-to-me spinning wheel actually works. It's got plenty of quirks, some of which will soon be fixed, but it makes real yarn and everything, so I can't complain. I've even got it making something reasonably fine, so we'll see how that works out after plying.

Photos will come when I can pull myself away from it long enough to take them and post them here.
