STEAMPUNK No.18 - HEAVY-WEIGHT Tahkli Style Support Spindle -- ONE OF A KIND --

A Vintage (1970's) Men's Electric/Quartz Wristwatch dial with vintage electric and mechanical watch gears, components, and ruby watch jewels are encapsulated in thick epoxy coating adorning a 1.5" antique brass plated alloy whorl along with gold tone or plated findings. On the top side, I've mounted the original gold plated back cast to the watch, along with a winding knob from a larger pocket watch and golden color/plated findings - all of this is mounted to a Hi-Gloss Plum Velvet steel shaft - for a very unique support spindle that is well balanced, heavy and powerful enough spin to adequately spin up the gnarliest of 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.
