We can supply component parts for Ashford wheels old and new.

That means everything from a wheel to a screw.  If you are unsure exactly which part you need then please contact us.


If it helps then send a picture of the broken part or area on the wheel where the part is broken or missing via email or post.

WHEEL MAINTENANCE


Ashford spinning wheels are robustly made to give a lifetime of service. However, to keep them in tip-top condition they require the occasional session of TLC (tender loving care). The following information will help keep your wheel in A1 condition.


If the wheel ‘speaks’ to you (by squeaking usually) then oil the offending area using a fine oil - Hilltop’s spinning wheel oil for example. Use it sparingly, a small drop in one of the following places will do the job.


The Maiden’s bearings

The Flyer’s Spindle on which the bobbin fits

The Wheel Crank at the point where the Treadle’s Crank Shaft fits.


If it is the Treadle that squeaks then try the following


If there are hinges oil them, again just a drop of oil will suffice. A drop of oil at each end of the treadle, the metal rod, where it fits into the spinning wheel’s frame.


We have had our Ashford Traditional's for 30 years and have replaced their major wheel bearings once during that period. However, every year our wheels are cleaned thoroughly with warm soapy water and a plastic scouring pad, dried and then polished. The flyer’s orifice is also cleaned of lanolin.


The wheel’s driveband, we use and supply thin mercerised cotton, should also be checked and replaced if required. Make sure the Mother of All’s Drive Band Adjusting Knob is not tipping back the Mother of All before replacing the drive band.


If your wheel has a leather footman - remove it - feed it with leather polish and refit it.


Make sure all the wheel’s screws are tight. Relax, admire your wheel and start spinning!

WRAP-AROUND YARN GAUGE
