Ball spindle - Titanium tipped Russian style supported spindle in Black Wattle and Dymondwood, light weight

This heirloom quality spinning tool is an original designed and made by Jory Freyee and Malcolm Fielding in the workshop of Malcolm Fielding. It is made from Black Wattle, a hard and very pretty Queensland rainforest timber. The whorl is mounted on a  Dymondwood shaft and balance tuned with a small sterling silver insert for perfect spin. The tip is made from a metal insert of hard titanium alloy for extremely long life and fast spins. 

Your spindle is finished to a smooth surface, polished with a french polish and then a final gloss of carnauba wax for a long lasting shine and protection. 

The support tip has a fine smooth point for long spins. The flicking tip is slender and allows good speeds to be attained with ease. This spindle has a medium speed spin, very long sustain and excellent balance. Balance is perfected by a tiny concealed silver pin counterweight in the whorl.

Your spindle is checked for quality and spin before despatch and comes with tip protectors and is packed with some Tasmanian Merino roving and a signed tag with the woods used listed and date of making.
