This support spindle design uses a satin silver plated brass (USA Made) Circa 1930 Waltham Watch Company pocket watch dial with a Steampunk design made of a number of authentic vintage and antique watch parts and ruby jewels mounted to the surface before coating in two thick layers of epoxy resin top coat to protect and create a no-snag lifetime finish. It is mounted to the bottom of a Eisenhower silver dollar and a 1.5" vintage brass clock gear with red metal flake black epoxy resin poured between the gear arms on the top of this unique whorl.
There is a stainless steel hex nut and a gold plated bead that is placed atop the clock gear - all mounted to one of my signature (Gold Metal Flake Hi-Gloss Black colored) steel shafts - for a very unique heavy weight support spindle that has an amazing spin that will work on pretty much any fiber you can whirl on it :-).
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.
NO-HOOK OPTION: Leave me a Note in the "Special Instructions for Seller" Box at Check-out :-) - Pre-made spindle; Removes 1/2" of shaft length
