The Wee Peggy was a New Zealand kit set built by Rappard. This one was bought and assembled in 1982. Serial #?79781. It is of the Shetland variety of wheels.
Recently Ashford has produced a version of the Wee Peggy, which retails today for between $700 – $800 CDN. I bought this one for $50 and refinished it. It was extremely well cared for by its previous owner. I disassembled it as I could, then I lightly sanded and steel wooled it. I used boiled linseed oil as a finish; the wood was very thirsty. It came out beautifully. It is in perfect shape. I really can’t wait to learn how to use it.

We will be looking for another wheel, but there is no rush…
