STEAMPUNK No.8 - Tahkli Support Spindle - Vintage Watch Components - Free Shipping
STEAMPUNK No.8 - Tahkli Style Support Spindle -- ONE OF A KIND --
A Vintage (1965) CARAVELLE men's wristwatch dial and original hands are encapsulated in thick epoxy coating adorning a Satin Brass (finished) solid alloy whorl along with gold tone or plated findings and 6 iridescent topaz crystals (top side) - all mounted to a Gold Metal Flake Black Shaft - for a very unique support spindle that is well balanced and spins fiber like a dream!
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.
