Timbertops Wheels & Accessories

 

I am announcing this here as we have already told a number of folk at Wonderwool and this obviously spreads rumours.

As many of you know we bought Timbertops Spinning Wheels on the 8th Decmber 2008 (9½ Years ago now) and despite various setbacks with the workshop fire and Clive having two hip operations and a AAA and me having concussion and also a cataract opereration, we have enjoyed the time and the challenges.

However, we have decided that once our latest batch of deposit paid orders ( which are all partially made and these will have priority with Clive's time) are completed by October/November of this year that Timberotps Spinning Wheels will hopefully have found a new Owner. So we are beginning our search for a suitable new Owner now. If you are interested yourself or know anyone that may like to keep the wonderful name of Timbertops Spinning Wheels alive, let us know or tell them to contact us as soon as possible or if you have any suggestions as to who we should contact to find a suitable owner let us know.

The person needs to be a good wood turner with an eye for precision, have preferably made a spinning wheel and know how they work. Also know how to spin or know someone that spins so that they can assist in 'test spinning' to ensure completed wheels work well.

The person buying the business will get as much assistance as we can give to help them on their way. We feel it is important and a wonderful opportunity to find someone who will move the business forward and who can fulfil the dreams of the folk who are already waiting for the order list for a Timbertops Wheel to be re-opened. It would be such a shame to see it dwindle away.

 

 

 

We have closed the waiting list for Timbertops wheels indefinitely, folowing Clive's AAA operation last year, we plan on endeavouring to complete those wheels that have had a deposit paid. This is to reduce pressure on Clive and make it easier for him to work.

We will no longer be issuing pricelists,

All wheels now go out with both Double Drive and Scotch Tension fitted. The new Scotch tension is also much more user friendly than the previous system.
