I have a spinning wheel attachment for a treadle sewing machine...made by Schacht Spinning wheel co , i think. here is a video of a similar device. the difference is that most spinning wheels feed in the fiber right in front of you. and if you adapt a treadle the wool will feed in from the side....

Actually the device I have was probably made by Clemes and Clemes... they are located near the San Francisco Bay area.

You'll need to expose the flywheel of the treadle, but I can't really say more without seeing what you've got to work with. Any chance of some photos?

You ought to post a new question, with the photos, because this has slipped so far down the list that nobody will see it.
