This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a quite rare white porcelain with orange enamel bubble hour markers on top of gold foil 1900 - 1920 Clarefax pocket watch dial made by Langendorf Watch Company of Langendorf, Switzerland. The design incorporates antique to vintage (1880’s to 1970’s) watch balance wheel, gold escapement wheel, polished steel winding gear and a large ruby watch jewel - all bonded to the surface of the dial and coated with 2 thick layers of epoxy resin finish.
The WHORL is made from a laser cut acrylic disc that I've edge milled and polished to soften the edges. 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. The bottom side of this top-whorl drop spindle has a large (1.75" dia.) vintage clock gear attached for added stability and rim weight to make this an amazing spinner!
