Vintage Timepiece ~Steampunk~ Tahkli Style Support Spindle No.120

WEIGHT/DIMENSIONS: 1.3 oz. (37g), Whorl dia. 1.2” x 7.8" Length (31mm x 19.8cm),
This is the Smaller Diameter (of the 2 that I make) Shaft = .106" (2.7mm)

Made from a total of 34 individual pieces, the centerpiece of this support spindle is the weathered and worn 1950's (Made in USA) Men's Wristwatch Dial that's been specially prepared and adorned with a commercial acetate Dragon-Art Piece that is sealed forever in a thick layer of epoxy top-coat resin. The whorl is made up of 2 copper coins and one 1/4" thick (smaller diameter) acrylic disc that has 12 Peacock Green (Preciosa Czech) Crystal Rhinestonesmore mounted to the perimeter for a extra added shine for you to enjoy your spinning! On the bottom of the whorl, I've added a layer of modeled metallic green apple epoxy resin with a stainless steel Sun Pendant mounted into the epoxy and a antique polished steel winding gear and gold and silver plated findings (top and bottom sides) - all of which is mounted to a metallic Champagne small diameter (Tahkli Style) steel shaft. This is a medium size and weight Tahkli spindle that has an amazingly well balanced and long spin that will work for spinning a wide variety of fibers.

John Galen Signature shafts are made from high carbon (spring) steel with a heat forged hook, and it is professionally finished with a 2-part polymer/powder-coat paint. All components are permanently bonded with 2-part industrial strength epoxy resin glue.
