I'm gonna bite the bullet and order myself an AA castle wheel. I don't have room for a "normal" wheel, but I can fit a castle wheel into the space currently occupied by the Timbertops Beaver, which I will then sell.

*snicker*snerk* Welcome to the dark side! Just - don't take it personally if he snarks at you.

The Irish Castle is *tall*, my Scottish Castle is...not so much (4.5', I think). I think the floor space is pretty much the same - my wheel is not quite as wide as my rocking chair, and it's maybe.....22" from front to back. Maybe less, maybe more - I'll try to remember to measure it tonight. It's definately not as space-hogging as a regular Saxony.

He makes a frame wheel that looks a little bit more compact, but it's Plain. (Which is why it's a little more affordable.) I keep looking at it, but I DO NOT NEED any more wheels. Nope. I don't. Not at all.

My Saxony is supposed to have a very small footprint - I'll let you know when I get it. Unfortunately, it's going to be on the High end of his pricing - it's got a lot of "fancy work" going on.

OK - I dug out a tape measure and started measuring. She is 17" from left to right, 22" from the treadle bar to the back leg, and.....47" (or so) from the floor to the top of the drivewheel. This is with the original flyer - if I were to put the super-duper bulky plyer on, she'd be about 19" from left to right - it hangs over the table a bit.
