@ Jon P. Thanks, and the wheel is maple sanded to 1500 with a fine layer of bow rosin, the strings are Black Diamond fiddle strings( g&d) it is tuned to A&E and the string like a hurdy gurdy have a wrapping of cotton where the wheel makes contact, I pulled it from Qtips.

That is crazy cool!  What material are the wheel and strings made from?
