This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a western style, made in USA in 1976, metallic gold painted Westclox pocket watch dial that is in perfect condition, along with 12 Swarovski crystal rhinestones mounted on the surface then coated in a thick layer of epoxy resin for long life finish and a "no-snag" surface. The dial is mounted to a milled acrylic ring and attached to its original bezel and back case cover that has a 1.75" Brass clock gear and cog mounted inside for an amazing and well balanced whorl. There are numerous stainless steel, and silver and gold plated alloy findings mounted to the Gold-Metal-Flake Gloss Black colored steel shaft. This is a wonderful medium weight drop spindle with an abundance of rim weight for a really amazing and long spin.
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 components are assembled with an industrial 2-part epoxy glue.
