The Spinning Wheel has three legs. The body of the wheel is about a ft long and 1 ft wide. Two posts standing on the body keeps up the rim. Two short posts on the front of the body that hold the spindle the
perin and the hack.
The perin holds the thread that that is letting in the thread. Two bands lead from the spindle and go round the wheel. A cord that leads from the axle to the foot-stool, that puts the whole thing working.

I have a wooden horse
As quick as she gallops
She swallows the rope.
