LOUET Spinning Wheel

I found this spinning wheel at a local auction a few years ago.  I tucked it away in a closet, but it is coming out now!  I have the wool ready and I am making my "plans"......but I really want to study up more first.
I would appreciate any spinners out there who may have some words of wisdom for me.  I am also looking for book recommendations.  When I got the spinning wheel, I ordered a couple books off eBay....which have not done much to help inspire me.
I paid $35 for my wheel....it seems to be in excellent working condition....I guess I will know more once I start using it!

Aren't you going to have fun? Pat's Knitting and Quilting might be another resource as she's recently taken up spinning too.

I'm clueless, but my friend Christine might be of some help.
