Weaving: Main Hand vs. Off HandFollow

I was wondering what the difference was between using a Rusty Needle and using a Maple Spinning Wheel in weaving. Does one have a higher success rate? Higher quality? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

With the needle, if you get a HQ synth you get +1 +2 +3. If you get a HQ synth with the spinning wheel, you get multiple items. For yarn, it's +1 +2 +3 or (Either x15 x18 x21 or x24 x36, I'm not sure)

No idea with equipment/parts though.

Use whichever is higher level, or if both items are the same level, use which seems to make more logical sense. Spinning wheel for making thread for example. I've found most success doing that, until someone actually makes a guide showing the differences.

Different recipes will be better or worse with main hand versus off hand.

By way of example, if you try to make hempen thread with your main hand, I believe you only yield two per synth. If you use your offhand, you yield a dozen at the exact same materials and shards cost.

For other things, you can generally assume a true RP preference. By that I mean that you probably wouldn't use a spinning wheel to sew together an inner hempen dalmatica, you know? You're going to be using a sewing needle. By the same token, if you're making cotton yarn, you're going to do it on a spinning wheel.

Realistically you would probably use a loom to make hempen, cotton, or canvas cloths... but I guess they didn't want to put in tertiary tools? Better this way...

NQ with wheel gives 12, and HQ1 gives 16. I presume HQ2 and HQ3 are 20 and 24, but don't know for sure.
