I have the sense of humor of a twelve year old boy, which Biker Bob is learning about first hand. As he pointed out, I laugh at Antellope Butts. That's not the point. The point is that my spinning wheel needs new hinges. I might be able to fix the ones I have with a good mallot, but I think it would be better in the long run to replace them. I will be happier, and that's what it's all about. I am not ifnorant to hardware, but while searching for hinges, I found something I have never seen before.
