Correction: We failed to credit the source of the illustrations on page 54, 55, and 56 of this article–the illustrations on page 54 and 56 were pulled from the Spinning Wheel Primer by Alden Amos and should be attributed to John Kyrk and Bill Hersey. The illustrations of splicing a drive band were pulled from the Spinner's Companion by Bobbie Irwin and were illustrated by Marjorie Leggitt. The illustrations of the bearings were created by Jason Reid, based on illustrations submitted by the author.
