Last night the boys and I went for a little adventure... a friend let me know about a man who was selling off his fiber equipment from when he lived in North Carolina... so of course I just had to contact him, lol.
I had seen some pictures of his stuff... and decided that I really wanted his Pat Green Triple Picker... and possibly an electric spinner... depending on the condition of course.
Well, I left his house with both the Picker and the E-Spinner, lol... Both needed to be cleaned and "tweaked" to function properly... but I am pretty pleased with them and can not wait to have them in the studio...
Here they are after their first cleaning :)
Pat Green Triple Picker
There is quite a bit of rust on the picker... but let me tell you, those tines are beyond sharp... the guy had a little padlock on it to keep kids from being able to open it... what a genius idea :)
E-spinner... the sticker says Janko Woodworking
The E-Spinner needed to be cleaned and taken apart... but once I figured out how to get it put back together, it took off like crazy... it has one speed... FAST... the sample that is on it, is between lace and fingering weight... definitely a work horse :)
