Re: Does my wheel need a hair cut?

Winston
The soft wheel I've been using has a direction to the hairs. If you spin it in one direction, it's like petting a cat the right way; if you spin it in the other direction, it's like petting a cat the wrong way.

I currently have it oriented so it's like petting a cat the right way. When I tried it the other way, the fibers stood up so it looked like what you have in your picture. I don't know if one or the other way is the correct way of using it.
