*Reduced*Rooney Country Craftsman Spinning Wheel And Stool


⭕ This is a 13 spoke matching Rooney Country Craftsman spinning wheel and stool. It spins well and has normal wear. I do not believe the top part of the distaff is original. The bobbin has a slight crack, but it does not affect spinning. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. Here is a bit of history on these wheels.

From 1969 to 1971, Jerome Rooney made spinning wheels for display. He was not aware that people were spinning and that there was a market for dependable, functioning wheels. Upon learning of this, he visited the Museum of American Textile History, North Andover, MA. The curator of the museum provided Rooney the opportunity to see their large collection of spinning wheels, many of which were in storage. One wheel in particular, a 1700#700;s Saxony flax wheel, caught his eye. After much measuring, comparing, and design work, the Country Craftsman spinning wheel was born. It was a beautiful, smooth, and responsive wheel, and a joy to spin on. It excelled in producing medium to very fine yarn.
Joseph Franzek started working with Rooney in Sept, 1972. When Rooney retired in 1982, Franzek took over his business. The Country Craftsman was built and distributed by Joseph Franzek, and his wife Cindy, until about 2003, when they decided to retire from custom woodworking.
