This STEAMPUNK Drop Spindle design stems from the use of a 1970's USA Made WESTCLOX Travel Ben mechanical travel alarm clock dial . The design incorporates antique to vintage (1880’s to 1970’s) watch balance wheel, polished steel winding gears, ratcheting springs and latches, brass drive gears/wheels, Swarovski Ruby Crystal Rhinestones - all bonded to the surface of the dial and coated with 2 thick layers of epoxy resin finish (approximately 3/32" thick). The bottom side of the whorl has a large vintage brass clock gear and cog mounted to it that gives this spindle some added weight toward the rim and a better spin - along with stability for the thin whorl.
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.
