Medium weight Gunstock Steampunk Gear Top Whorl Drop Spindle 10" shaft


Shipping to United States: $4.20

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?

I have bought multiple Snyder Spindles for my mom as gifts- she loves every single one! I live nearby as well so I love supporting local businesses. Highly recommend!

while i haven't had a chance to use it yet, I've given it a thorough look over and love the quality, balanced weight and accurate, and it's just what I was looking for. and it arrived early! (too bad my fiber is running late, or I'd have more for ya') i highly recommend! and I will order from this shop again when the time comes for sure.

This feels great to use and spins for so long! Really lovely spindle. Great design.

My daughter’s favorite spindle, is a Snyder. Perfection!

I love this spindle- it’s light and holds an impressive amount of fiber (I used it to ply 5.3 oz) and it has great momentum when you spin it. The little cogs also are great for holding your yarn in place so it doesn’t slip. The hook was a little sharp and my yarn was catching on it, but I took the edge off with a metal nail file and it’s fine now. All in all, I love it, and it looks so cool!
