Estonia Fig. 2B

Two kaldvokk (which means “sloping spinning wheel” in Estonian) in the Open Air Museum in Tallin.

Two bobbin/flyer spinning wheels: Bobbin/flyer wheels with three legs and a treadle, and a spoked drive wheel. Tables are steeply slanted with two back legs fitting into the ends of the table. on wheel on left-hand side, drive-wheel supports are almost parallel to the ground, so have small braces for reinforcement.
