I am looking for a bobbin winder, I used a Leclerc electric winder for years, now does not work and I tried to have it fixed but the pedal is worn out , too old, probably close to 100 years old.
It is a Leclerc bobbin winder (See picture). Anyone has something similar I can borrow for a few weeks, or rent.

Kirsten 26″ cherry wood Spinning Wheel by Watson Wheels

+ lazy kate + niddy noddy (all from Watson wheel)
This unit is the 81st of this model that was made and it was built in 2000. (stamped on bottom)
Watson Spinning wheels is family owned, and this wheel was built from a cherry tree on the family’s property.
MODEL: Kirsten 26″
Norwegian-type horizontal bed
Double threadle
26″ wheel
Size: 37″ × 16″ × 39″
Orifice height : 27″
3/8″ orifice
Double drive and can be set up for scotch tension
3 whorl sizes
3 bobbin types

The wheels and bobbins run on bronze bearings, Belt tension is obtained by simply rotating the mother-of-all in a friction clamp. This provided a very rigid mount yet permits a wide range of adjustment for different whorl sizes without changing the drive belt.

The wheel columns are braced to the sub-table. This provides accurate alignment and rigidity which combined with the inertia of a heavy wheel rim, ensures very smooth and consistent spinning.

Comes with the following, all built by the same craftsman:

• 5 bobbins
–> each holding 6-7 oz of wool
–> have drive pulley on each end

• 2 yard niddy noddy

• Floor lazy kate
–> holds 3 bobbins

You can look on their website for more info:
***prices on their website are in US dollars, before shipping and before taxes***
One of the bobbin has a little piece thay as been chipped, as shown on picture.
Price in Canadian dollars: 3,000.00
I live in Powell River but am happy to ship.
