WEIGHT/DIMENSIONS: 1.7 oz. (48g) - 1.5” dia x 7.75" (3.8cm x 19.7cm)
with small diameter (.104"/2.6mm) BLACK-GOLD Powder-Coat Painted shaft
An exceptionally rare find of two identical (mint condition - rose-gold tone metal) vintage (1940's) Elgin Deluxe Pocket Watch dials - both adorned with antique to vintage mechanical watch gears, components, and ruby watch jewels, which are encapsulated in thick epoxy coating and mounted to both sides of a 1.5" antique brass plated alloy whorl along with stainless steel gold tone findings - then all this is mounted to a Metal-Flake Black-Gold steel shaft for a very unique support spindle that is well balanced, heavy and powerful enough spin to adequately spin up t long staple fibers, as well as cotton and other short staple fibers too!
The shaft is made from spring steel with a heat forged hook and is colored with a 2-coat hi-temperature powder-coat paint. Dial is coated with 2 extra thick layers of epoxy and all parts are mounted with industrial 2-part epoxy. These are great medium weight support spindles for spinning cotton, short staple fibers, and finer long staple fibers for a fast and long spin.
NO-HOOK OPTION: If you like to spin on support spindles without a hook, I will remove the at no charge. - Removes 1/2" of total length PLEASE LEAVE NOTE AT CHECK-OUT :-)
