STEAMPUNK No.31 - HEAVY-WEIGHT Tahkli Style Support Spindle -- ONE OF A KIND --
WEIGHT/DIMENSIONS: 2.0oz. (56.6g) - 1.5” dia x 7.75" (3.8cm x 19.7cm) with large
diameter (.133"/3.4mm) METALLIC COBALT-BLUE Powder-Coat Painted shaft
An exceptionally rare find of two identical (mint condition - silver tone metal) vintage (1960's) Sovereign (Benrus brand, Swiss made) 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 Metallic Cobalt Blue steel shaft for a very unique support spindle that is well balanced, heavy and powerful enough spin to adequately spin up 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 :-)
