New Wheel

Yesterday at Tel hai we unwrapped our latest wheel,kindly donated by Ruth Corman our generous benefactress: it's a Thomas Stuart wheel rebranded as a Skutt,who have recently taken over the firm. The wheels are new in Israel [though recommended by Robin Hopper when he visited a couple of years ago] so I thought we'd try one out in the grueling conditions of Tel Hai. This is the smallest version [1/3 hp];initial impressions [mine,after 10 mins tryout] are favorable,but the true test of a wheel is its longevity,so we'll see if it's still spinning in a couple of years.
