Re: Any spinners out there? Drive band question


Pat Bullen
 

I like rug linen or waxed linen for drive bands.  Set the wheel for the smallest drive band ratio.  Use a surgeon's knot (like a square knot but you wrap the yarn twice) or square knot.  Use sewing thread and a needle to secure the ends of the linen to the band.  Increase the tension on the cord until you are happy.  You can also use cotton rug warp but it will wear out faster (depending on how much you spin).
