I do hope you are considering writing a book on this. I'd really love reading that.

I can't wait either!


Agreed; a book would be most welcome on the topic! :)


This looks like a terrific issue! I'm anxiously waiting for my Marie by Andrew Watson to come up in the queue!


Articles are very nicely done. You did an excellent job of explaining how the Han wheel operates. The procedure was not readily apparent by looking at the pictures. Give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.

Hi, I run a non-profit group called W.E.L.L. (Women Empowered and
Loving Life). We've got a craft event going on until the end of
October making slippers for women and kids in battered shelters. We're
coming up pretty shy on the number of actual slippers donated, and so
we're trying to involve local teachers and groups. Please check out
the event, and please pass the info no to any/all people you know who
might be interested. It's easy to help and a great cause.

Thanks for your time,

Congrats on your 2 articles! Thanks for telling us the outcome of your investigations. For those wheelwrights with no familial heir to the wheelmaking legacy, I wonder if or wish they would consider an apprentice! Surely there are willing students out there? That's a skill I would love to learn!!!


Trivia for you: the Han Chinese invented (not the wheel) the bell.
