Two new friends

This weekend two new friends came to live at my house.

The first one is relatively new, built some time between 1989-1993. It came from Southern California, possible around Torrence.
This ones a bit bound up and the wheel does not spin freely yet but I plan to that her to my uncle whose a woodworker to see if he can help.

This one is a bit older. I'm thinking 80-100 years old. She was a bit dusty and dirty but after a good cleaning she a beauty. She does have a distaff but the basket part is broken. I might try to see if a friend of mine can fix it. She spins like a dream.

I plan to contact the Spinning Wheel Sleuth to see if she has any ideas as to the origins of these two wheels.
