Instead of finding a lathe and taking a stab at making replacement parts for the 19th century Canadian production spinning wheel Kit picked up last year, I figured I’d take a stab trying to make the parts on the Lulzbot. Normally, for a typical wheel that’s around now it’s just a 20 dollar or so purchase to pick up bobbins, but these wheels were never built to any real standard. So after an hour with a caliper, I’ve come up with this bobbing and the tapered drive pulley.
I still need to smooth the ABS and bond the bobbin together (it is designed as a center shaft and two end pieces.) Once it’s all done I plan to put up the STLs on my github. Having not actually measured another wheel in person I don’t know exactly how different they are, but hopefully it’ll help someone in the future.
