  • Spinning Wheels for Sale March 15, 2022
    I am Jay Sigel and I live in Pearland. I’m a retired ER physician who has done woodworking for over 40 years. My hobby is building quality early American furniture including spinning wheels. (I have been selling them on Etsy, but shipping costs have made any sales fairly rare.) I have 4 colonial-type spinning wheels and one upright currently in stock, ready for your approval. I’m for real! You can call me. Let me know if you’d like a demonstration. The listed prices are less than their sale prices on Etsy.
    These take 2-3 months to build. I sell them for the cost of materials and to help pay for the equipment to build them. As I enjoy making them, I need to sell them or I’ll run out of space! This is not a business and I don’t need the income from selling them. The cost of the spinning wheels is therefore much less than retail and is determined by the design type (uprights cost less) and the type of wood used. (I also make repair parts for spinning wheels for just the cost of materials. My labor is always free.)
    Colonial spinning wheel prices: $612 for sapele (mahogany), $675 for walnut, $765 for granadillo.
    Upright spinning wheel prices: $522 for oak, $585 for hard maple (under construction).
    Better than buying one online, you can come over and see them and operate them before you decide to buy any, so there’s no shipping cost. These are full size spinning wheels with the identical wheel ratios regardless of the type. The uprights are easier to transport, have all brass bearings, no leather and no wood-on-wood moving parts. They all come with 4 bobbins.
    You can contact me Cell phone is 432-202-4642.
    Thank you,
