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 Red Mahogany 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?

Spindle is just as beautiful in person as it is in the pictures. It's pretty light but the shaft is the perfect length to wind a fair amount of spun fiber onto and the whole thing is well balanced.

This spindle is a real workhorse. It's wide gear whorl makes it the perfect size for bigger handspins. I will definitely order more of this item, it's my go-to spindle.
