WEIGHT/DIMENSIONS: Weight: 0.8oz (23g), Whorl: Acrylic/Alloy .3” x 1.85” (8mm x 47mm), SHAFT: the Smaller of the two that I make at .106" (2.7mm) diameter x 8" long
This design incorporates a lovely 1" (26mm) turquoise (howlite) donut/disc, a silver plated floral filigree pendant, and a 1/16" (1.7mm) acrylic disc for a whorl. The pendant is has the center removed (on my lathe) to increase rim weight, and it laminated to the slightly smaller acrylic disc - leaving a scalloped rim edge for the fiber to hold onto. It is all mounted to the steel shaft and finished off with a large silver plated multi-crystal pendant on the bottom side and several silver plated and silver-tone caps and jewelry findings around the signature John Galen high-carbon steel shaft with a heat forged hook - which has an industrial quality 2-part (color/gloss) powder coat paint applied. All components are assembled with an industrial quality 2-part epoxy resin for long life.
This is an amazing and versatile light weight drop spindle that has a fast spin and good rim weight to handle a wide range of fine fibers.
