This is the Smaller Diameter (of the 2 that I make) Steel Shaft = .109" (2.6mm)
An absolutely gorgeous example of fine craftsmanship, this is a Circa 1860, Made in England, 0.800 Silver Dial with 18kt gold floral accents and a gold wash over silver and a porcelain inset wit Roman Numerals and delicate floral hand painted accents - along with 12 Aquamarine AB color Swarovski Crystal Rhinestones mounted around the perimeter - then coated in a thick layer of clear epoxy resin to protect the finish and look forever, and for a no-snag finish.
The WHORL is made up from the 6 epoxy glue laminated components, including the dial, two 1/16" thick acrylic discs, one stainless steel disc, one antique brass clock gear, one (tarnished and coated) silver plated filigree pendant, and 12 large and shiny Blue Zircon Swarovski crystal rhinestones mounted under the pendant. The finished whorl, along with a gold plated multi-crystal bead spacer, a polished steel watch winding gear, and several gold and silver plated findings are all mounted to a John Galen Designs Signature metallic teal heat forged (hook) steel shaft.
This spindle spins fast and long due to excellent rim weight, the small diameter shaft, and a lighter/medium size whorl design. All components are permanently bonded with 2-part industrial strength epoxy resin glue.
