After correcting the arm wobble with masking tape, I am ready to go on project number two. This time instead of a wonky batt, I am spinning some commercial Corriedale top from the stash.
I still have to add a lot of extra spin to keep the single from breaking. I suspect I am trying to spin too thin for this weight of spindle but it's my default now and I can't seem to break the habit. Anything thicker than this just doesn't look right to me. The good thing about the underspin I get with this thing is that the singles puff back up nicely to make a thicker, fluffier two ply in spite of what my fingers will allow. I guess what I am trying to say here is that the spindle has more sense than I do.
