Sooo - I just spent the last 3 days or so whaling away on PVC & gutting a couple of older BABE wheels I had round the house mostly scrapping them for spare parts these days... And after seeing the incredibly gorgeous tandem-driven "accelerated spinning wheels" of modern day Wheelmistress Betty Roberts - And not really having ever paid much attention one way or another which SIDE of my wheels my Flyer is mounted to the wheel...
And finally - knowing that my Jensen Ashley is being made with the wheel on the RIGHT which will be a first for me... Herewith came the following result... I give you my brand new ©Dream Spinner Creations-2012 wheel design creation called "Steampunked" - a PVC & Nylon dual wheeled Tandem Driven spinning wheel! Boyyy is she a FAST wheel tho! Whooo!!! CLICK the PIC to see a larger view.
The lightshow stick mounted to the lower 22" diameter nylon drive wheel runs on 3AAA batteries & randomly flashes thu 32 different patterned LED brilliant color arrays - that in nearly dark - appear to "chase" round & fill the entire wheel! Going to be major-league FUN on Halloween I can tell you & extra points - for Cool too!!! This is what happens when I have a creative URGE hit me that will NOT be denied! I think I'm in LOVE with my new "Steampunked" PVC Accelerated Spinning Wheel!
Happy Autumnal Spinnings Ya'll! Teri
