Squeaky wheel, silent wheel

The Traveler complained a lot recently - squeaking every time I treadled the left treadle. This, despite all the oiling. Eventually I turned her up and there was the culprit, the hinges. These were oiled and violá! squeak gone -

- only to e replaced byt a rattle from the mother-of-all. This turned out to be due to a loose drive band so out with the lighter and shorten the band.
Sweet silent spinning.

Dopey 09, Black Cherry spun at 12:1 over 1".
The color is not good (too dull and spotty) so this will have to be overdyed with a brighter red.
