- NEW STYLE DROP SPINDLE for spinning Cotton, silk, fine wool, and other fine staple fibers:
- THIS IS THE EASIEST SPINDLE TO SPIN FIBER ON THAT I HAVE EVER USED! The small diameter and light weight of this spindle makes it perfect for drawing out fiber in one hand while spinning the shaft with the other hand and getting some twist in the fiber prior to suspending the fiber and adding twist from the fast spin that you get from this spindle.
This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindles design stems from the use of an antique (pre-1932) Illinois Watch Company size 16 brass pocket-watch dial with a design made from 1860's to 1960's watch gears, ruby jewels, and other various components (that I have personally removed from various watch movements) embedded in two thick layers of epoxy finish (approximately 3/32" thick).
The WHORL is made from a laser cut acrylic disc that I've milled to soften the edges and heat polished. 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 parts, including gold tone findings and cap bead, and 6 Swarovski Crystal Rhinestones, are assembled with an industrial 2-part epoxy glue.
