A user review:

The following are impressions and critique of the spinning wheel gifted to me this past month, The machine has been an item of discussion for nearly a year and to have it "underfoot" has been nothing but a joy. I think of myself as more of a practical spinner than an artisan spinner. This wheel has completely satisfied the criteria that I look for in a wheel. Having spun on manner commercial wheels and a couple of hand crafted ones, this is far and away the finest machine I have worked on. The balance and smoothness of operation is top flight. The flyer is well balanced and the brake adjustment if one of the best I have ever used. While I prefer a single treadle machine and this is a double, it has not been a problem in the least. It is so well balanced and machined that even using only one of the pedals, we can still rock and roll.
Like any new machine, one must build a relationship. We understand each other, and are now starting to get really tight. One of the things we worked out was a problem with the drive belt slipping. That, with John's help and some minor tweaking, has been solved.
I can recommend this wheel without reservation to anyone that is a serious practical spinner. One who is looking for a tough workhorse. My wheel is also a piece of art. The cherry construction is great. It may not be one of the artsy, curly cue, phoo-phoo types. But then it doesn't pretend to be. Finally, price. I know of four wheels that have been purchase in the past year. I have spun on all four and without hesitation the Cassandra wheel is the most functional. The four other wheels ranged in price from $680.00 to $1300.00 All I can say is: IF anybody is in the market for a wheel, get this one now before John and Cassie realize it is so woefully under-priced.

Pros: solid wood construction, relatively quiet, easy to put together, although a labeled diagram would have been of value, customer service is quick to address questions/concerns, great price for a beginner wheel that will last generations, extra bobbins!
Cons: finish work was a little less than expected (sanding); easy fix; tension issues are frustrating, long wait time, but as mentioned elsewhere, these are handmade wheels. Ordered in mid December, shipped end of April.
Suggestions: spend the wait time reading up on the wheel and its issues/fixes. Buy your finish oil of choice/extra fine sand paper. Don't put the wheel together Right away; take the time to sand any rough spots and give the wheel a good feeding with the finish oil first. Back away when frustrated and contact JMS.

I wish I could have done my review sooner but, illness in my family kept me offline for quite sometime. Such a beautiful piece of working art. You can clearly see the time and skill put into each one. I absolutely adore my Cassandra Spinning Wheel. Thank you John!

Really wonderful wheel, I am a newbie spinner and this does the trick for me! The wait time for the wheel was a little on a long side (about 13 weeks), but really John is BUILDING these by hand, so it is understandable.
