Clockwork Gear Spindle

Shipping to United States: $4.00
Sorry, this item has sold.

This medium weight Clockwork Gear top whorl drop spindle weighs 1.1-1.2 oz (30-34 g)
It features a hand-turned 3 1/2" diameter whorl made from Baltic birch ply, with a 10" long poplar shaft with a dinner bell hook.
Stained Golden Pecan and sealed.

I hand turn these with the mass to the rim for better balance and longer spin.
well balanced and tested

This unique shape is not just stylish but does what a good drop spindle does...spin.
The center cutouts not only makes it lighter it puts the majority of the mass to the rim and that's a good thing. Who doesn't want 20 notches?

sorry so late to review. I love the spindles SnyderSpindles make. so well made and i tell others looking for quality made hand spindles to definitely buy from SnyderSpindles. thank you

Love this spindle, so cool!!!!

Very beautiful work! I have been a fan for years and finally had the chance to purchase one of these spindles for myself. it is a very practical choice because the ridged edges allow you to secure your yarn at any point along the spindle so that you can lead it up to the hook without slippage. The hook also has the correct shape to hold your yarn straight when you're spinning it. Besides being practical, the item looked exactly as pictured- in fact it looks better in person. I am very happy with it and, for its size, it is very light. I expect this spindle will hold a lot of yarn and spin well. this was definitely worth the wait and I know that I will be back.

Stunning as always !!! the pictures do not do them justice
