Medium Weight Mandala Gear Spindle
top whorl drop spindle weighs 1.0-1.1 oz (29-30 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?
