Sara McBurney: Hi! I built this wheel, the plans were great! But when I try to spin roving, it doesn`t spin, just rips off. I assume that I`m not doing something right, but was wondering if you could help me out? Thanks a ton!
Rina!: Huh. Very similar mechanism to a quill for spinning cotton or a Great Wheel. Very nice!
Edmund Dantes: In the video you've linked, the woman also reverses everytime she winds on (I don't know if you noticed). I don't know how a hook would help
Sandys Kreationz: where is the sound on this video, I watched other vids but this one has no sound.
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?
Lori Frejek: Thank-You!!!!! sooooo much for sharing these plans. This wheel looks great.
Heather: 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?
Heather: 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.
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! =)
the0therjennifer: You are so awesome!
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?
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!
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
Edmund Dantes: lol! Back at ya.
TheFrugal Gardener: Got The Dodec made and OMG I LOVE IT!
Rebecca Levitan: I think I'm in love with you.
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.
EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
