Good for you, Chickeroo!  The whole process is very rewarding.  Old wheels can be difficult to learn on.  Can you take lessons and become proficient on a modern wheel, and then transfer your knowledge to a vintage one?

Apparently they are going to teach me on a drop spindle first, and then once I get the hang of that I'll try out the actual wheel....we shall see!
