Double drive wheel set up with Scotch tension

Scotch tension can be rigged on a double drive antique wheel for those who prefer it.
This is one way to do it, if the flyer on your wheel will clear the string across the top

This seriously authentic-looking woman, with the emphasis on the serious part, has dropped a string from the string connecting the top of the maidens around her bobbin. I can’t see where that string goes after it goes around the bobbin, but it may return to the the top crossways string.
I just tied a string around the mother-of-all and brought it up over my bobbin, and then down through the hole for the distaff and tied a rock on it.
