- NEW STYLE DROP SPINDLE for spinning Cotton, silk, fine wool, and other fine staple fibers:
- THIS IS THE EASIEST SPINDLE TO SPIN FIBER ON THAT I HAVE EVER USED! The small diameter and light weight of this spindle makes it perfect for drawing out fiber in one hand while spinning the shaft with the other hand and getting some twist in the fiber prior to suspending the fiber and adding twist from the fast spin that you get from this spindle.

This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a rare faint-red-tinted (132+ years old) antique "New Era Watch Co." porcelain pocket watch dial (circa pre 1886) with antique to vintage (1880’s to 1970’s) watch gears, ruby jewels, and components - which are then coated with 2 thick layers of epoxy finish (approximately 3/32" thick).
The WHORL is made from a laser cut acrylic disc that I've edge milled and polished to soften the edges. The shaft is made from high carbon (spring) steel with a forged hook that has a 2-part powder coat paint finish applied for a beautiful look and feel. All parts, including gold tone findings and cap bead, vintage silver swirl button (bottom side) are assembled with an industrial 2-part epoxy glue.
