That looks splendidly practical, especially for a boat.

Do you know what the main wheel is manufactured for? (It could be the spinning wheel, but I wouldn't expect so, somehow.)

Judging by the looks it looks like a repurposed film spool reel.

Indeed yes, wheelchair.

Interestingly enough, I have met Babe (who is actually a husband and wife team), and even assembled a few of those at their facility in Wisconsin.

Well, I'm sure they'd accept suggestions gracefully...but I'm not sure they'd ever implement them.

22" is 'right on the edge' for the longer reel films I've seen. Usually travelogue ones 'back in the day'. Still impressive enough.

Wow! That's a beautiful thing. I wish you many years of happy spinning with it.

Ah, you got a Babe! I've heard good things about those.

Have you seen the steampunk mod someone did to their Babe wheel?
