Thank you sir, yep we can recycle them for money but crushed is fine.
In the background is a all wood, other than the cylinder steam engine and a Spinning Jenny Spinning wheel.
We have built 15 spinning wheels of original unusual designs.

You bet post away, fun to see your stuff working. (And I, for one, could use a bit of fun after yesterday!)

Seems you'd have to be a might careful with that beard... that it doesn't get spun right in with the wool! :shock:
(As I always say sometimes, "never trust a guy with a beard" - only had mine for the last 35 years and most of the last 45!)
