Item details

rare, primitive version of an accelerator head for a walking wheel spinning wheel (also known as a great wheel) / this part is a cruder version of the Minor head part that was invented & patented in 1810 which allowed spinning wheels to spin faster / it has been looked at by numerous spinning wheel experts & has been determined to be from New England, approximately dating to the early 1830's

the part measures 19" long and 6" wide at its widest point / the thin handle section measures 6 1/2" long / the head wheel is 4 1/4" in diameter / the head is made up of four parts that are held together by a mortise and tenon construction (peg through wood) / the rotating wheel is attached by a metal bar pin with wire roping / there is a small section of this accelerator head that is missing two pieces that were not with it when found / missing is the metal spindle with a wooden whorl that would attach to the two holes on the flat middle section with leather or braided bearings / other than these two missing pieces, it is in excellent antique condition with only a few chips out of the rotating wheel

the accelerator head is a fabulous find / it would be an excellent part to acquire for anyone who does spinning wheel restoration / it also would make a great display piece for any textile museum / terrific for antique home decor - especially for anyone who spins or collects spinning wheel memorabilia

FAQs

For vintage and antique items, shipping is typically within 1-2 business days of payment. More often than not I ship the SAME DAY. Feel free to read my buyer reviews as many customers have commented on my speedy shipping & quality packaging. Custom orders may take additional time to ship & this will be determined by the seller & worked out with the buyer. I do ship to FPO & AP addresses. USPS First Class and/or Priority shipping, both with Delivery Confirmation, is used for most items. For larger items, breakables and items valued at $100 or more, insurance & signature confirmation is added. Due to size and/or weight, sometimes larger items are shipped via USPS Parcel Post.

Lost packages are a rare but unfortunate result of the busy world of online shopping & delivery. Extreme weather & holidays can also delay delivery of your package. Please let me know if your package has not arrived in a reasonable amount of time. Keep in mind that once an order has shipped, it is in the hands of the USPS and/or other mail carriers & becomes their responsibility to deliver it safely to you. It is important to immediately alert & work with your local carriers to locate & retrieve your order if it has not been delivered in a timely fashion.

With vintage & antique purchases, all items may have natural imperfections, dings, dents, scratches, odors and/or show wear & patina due to age & use over time & are sold AS IS.
