Vintage Timepiece (Steampunk) Style Tahkli Support Spindle No.88 - FREE SHIPPING (US Only)
Vintage Timepiece (Steampunk) - ONE OF A KIND - Mid Weight - (Tahkli Style) Support Spindle No.88
BRIEFLY: Made from a total of 28 individual parts - this is a worn and weathered Circa 1940 Pocket Watch Dial with Authentic Watch Parts and Swarovski Crystals, Brass Clock Gear and Eisenhower Dollar Whorl, and more Watch Parts on top with additional Clock Gear and Stainless Steel Hex-Nut/Gold Plated Findings - all mounted to a John Galen Signature Metallic Cobalt Blue Steel Shaft.
WEIGHT/DIMENSIONS: 2.1 oz. (62g), Whorl dia. 1.56” x 8.4" Length (40mm x 21.3cm),
This is the Larger Diameter (of the 2 that I make) Shaft = .137" (3.5mm) in Cobalt Blue
An engine-turned pattern on this satin silver plated Swiss dial with an abstract double rainbow color acetate art transfer applied to the surface is the centerpiece of this spindle. The dial has a number of authentic vintage and antique watch parts and Swarovski crystal rhinestones 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 cobalt blue metal flake epoxy resin poured between the gear arms on the top of this unique whorl. The antique (late 1700's) winding gear embedded in the blue epoxy (top of whorl) is to balance the spindle.
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 (Metallic Cobalt Blue 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
