Assembled the Minstrel tonight and even got a little spinning done! Here are some photos:
This is what she looked like after finishing but before assembly.
And here is what she looks like completely finished. Is this a gorgeous wheel or what?
Here's another angle.
I even got a little spinning done. I love this wheel!
It went together pretty quickly, once it was ready. It came with a video and printed instructions which were helpful.
So far I'm really, really pleased. It is spinning beautifully, especially for a brand new wheel. I oiled the heck out it and there are no creaks, squeaks, sticks or bumps. Just silent, smooth, even spinning. Wow!
Back to spinning...
