Impromptu Tour

Filed under: Miscellaneous Stuff — Miss P @ 4:25 pm
So, I had a doctors appointment in Boulder, CO yesterday and my daughter Sarah, my pseudo-daughter Melissa, and my grandson, Zildjian decided to tag along. I suggested that since we were going to Boulder anyway, I always wanted to stop by the Schacht factory just to see what there was to see.

Upon arriving, a very sweet receptionist seemed excited that we stopped by, equipped all of us with safety glasses and started the tour. It is interesting that they do not have an inventory of wheels and looms sitting around, but rather parts. Equipment is assembled as orders come in. 

Before we left, my shirt was soaked from all the drooling and mark my words, I will have a Schacht Reeves 30-inch cherry wheel before I die. Hope you like the pictures and if you are ever in Boulder, by all means stop and take a quick tour!

Sanding Belts

A very special loom they were building while we were there. The biggest they make ... for rugs.

Three Lady Bugs all in a row ... they are so cute!

Hey, I need one of those!

 

My next wheel ;)
