This Steampunk Medium weight top whorl drop spindle weighs 0.9-1.1 oz (26-31 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 Gun stock 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?

Nice and light for its size, but the edge-weighted design gives it a lot of spinning oomph. I like how the steampunk-gear aesthetic also provides a lot of secure yarn notches, and helps keep the spindle from rolling off of tables and other flat surfaces. My new favorite plying spindle!

There is nothing like a Snyder Steampunk spindle for teaching new spinners.

Beautiful, lightweight, spins forever. This is my second Snyder gear spindle and won't be my last.
