This Tahkli (Style) Support Spindle is made with a 1.” diameter solid brass whorl with two epoxy resin top coated 1970's NOS (New Old Stock) red and gold dragon wristwatch dials mounted top and bottom sides. After the whorl is mounted to the shaft, a special jig is used and the piece is milled to perfect center and round and polished to a smooth bright finish (brass will patina with age). A large gold plated bead cap is mounted on the bottom side and 6 Siam (red) colored Swarovski crystal rhinestones are mounted inside and two gold stainless steel finding beads are placed top and bottom sides around the shaft to finish it all off. The shaft is hand-made from spring steel with a heat forged hook that is coated with a 2-coat hi-temperature powder-coat paint. All parts are mounted with industrial 2-part epoxy. This is a medium weight Tahkli style spindle and it spins fast and long (THE BEST SPINNING SPINDLE YET)– making it great for not only cotton, but other short staple fibers and fibers such as silk and fine wool.
