All the folks that I know who have double treadle wheels really like them. The Ladybug looks like a really great wheel. Where's the ladybug on your wheel? Did you get lots of extra bobbins? AFAIK, it's impossible to have too many bobbins.

I had a single and promptly got rid of it for a double treadle hitchhiker. Idk how people can use just one.

I soon bought a bunch of bobbins & altered them to fit a boatload of yarn on them. I hate switching bobbins. Lol

The ladybug is on the wood behind the wheel on the right side when you are sitting at the wheel.

It came with 3 bobbins which is enough for me for now, I mostly just do 2 ply so that gives me enough bobbins to do that without an issue.

After a while I'll get the jumbo plyer flyer and a few more bobbins but for now what I have is plenty.
