Nicole Berinobis: here's for the preppers

Lori Frejek: Thank-You!!!!! sooooo much for sharing these plans. This wheel looks great.

Wendy McClain: Where are the plans? I don't see any link..

marmca: You may want to re-Title this video. It shows Nothing of how to build your own wheel, just show off your drafting skills. It is basically the same as my kick or drop spindles but yours evidently has a foot pedal (I don't know as your lap was only thing I could see during the entire 3+ minute video)

Bob Hunczak: Why do you have to reverse the wheel when you're spinning?

LaShanna Doyle: I want to learn to spin, but don't have the money to buy one of the "traditional" treadle wheels, but I'm pretty sure that even I (with minimal woodworking skills) can make this one in the matter of a day or so!! Thank you for being so awesome!!

m4r1t4c4: Also, is there any other info in your ebook other than building your wheel? Does it talk about how to use it (for complete novices)? Does it have basic/introductory info on how to prepare your own fibers from plants and how to make those tools?

the0therjennifer: You are so awesome!

Edmund Dantes: I really liked it too. It turned out better than I could have hoped, and I couldn't be Happier! Thank you, and I hope you wear it out and have to build another. lol

Michelle H: I want!

anndelise: Thank you so much. I admire minds capable of such creativity. Thanks for sharing it.

Rebecca Levitan: I think I'm in love with you.

Jennknittifer: Thank you so much for the free plans and for taking your time to show others how it's made!! I built mine and I love it!!! Check out my video on my channel! =)

thenogoodname: Thank you so much for such a simple solution! As a college student, when funds are tight and time is limited, I want to keep with my spinning, and this will make it possible! Thanks so much!

rigidheddleweaving: Also, I read this in a forum thread: If you go to Spinning Daily and look for the Fall 2012 Spin Off magazine, page down to the contents, look for Web projects, and the plans are in that section for download. You won't have to buy the magazine, and the actual creator of this DODEC wheel advises that Interweave Knits has created a much clearer version of his pattern. He advises that people download this version over the one in his Ravelry group.

m4r1t4c4: Meh, your title doesn't really express what this is. You should change it to something like 'Using the Porter Threads Spinning Wheel'. I didn't get anything on how to actually make a wheel, which is what your title implies.

lababla1lababla: brilliant

Cindy Telisak: OMG. You're amazing. Thank you for engineering such a simple solution.

rigidheddleweaving: You can find it on ravelry com and spinningdaily com

Edmund Dantes: lol! Back at ya.

TheFrugal Gardener: Got The Dodec made and OMG I LOVE IT!

kannaookamisama: Thank you soo very much for this. I've wanted a spinning wheel for a very long time but never thought I could afford one and I've been searching for a tutorial on how to make one with a treadle...(why i didn't think to check youtube idk) I bow to your epic engineering skills... again thanks soo much for sharing this with the world

Beverly Elrod: Wow! This is totally amazing. I'm about to look through the videos to see if you've got the diagram of how to make it somewhere. If you see this post, I hope you'll jump in there and let me know where you might have it at.

fiveironfille: I WANT ONE!! :)

Edmund Dantes: I only innovate products I use, and I don't card my wool. I show how I prep wool in my video "Spinning my Wheels"

jane of many trades: next, can you make a simple carding drum?

Edmund Dantes: No, Your amazing.. and Science is amazing! lol

rigidheddleweaving: THANK YOU for making this freely available. I can't wait to make mine. We bought the materials this evening. Including the drill bits and tax, it came just over $25.00. Tomorrow we cut out the pieces. Once we get it figured out, we will make another one and also try and figure out a Delta Flyer for it.

School: Thanks for teaching us how to fix it. The problem with most Medical assistant in california is usually the cost of education. Hopefully it'll pay off. Thanks again.
