Hi! New spinner here, first question! I have just received what I think is a lateral spinning wheel, possibly Swiss. I have no idea how to thread a drive band around it. It didn’t come with one, by the way. I’m really interested in learning how to work this, considering how it’s practically brand new and in really good condition. The only thing that’s missing is a drive band, & I know that you can get some cotton twine or string and I have that, but I’m not sure how to thread it in the actual machine. If I can figure out how to work this website, I will try to attach a picture of it. Anybody got any experience with these specific machines?
The label on the bottom says Ernest Mason, if that helps anybody.
