Pu Yok - Tibetan style supported spindle, in Queensland Maple and Dymondwood, titanium tipped, medium heavy weight - long shaft version

This lovely Tibetan style supported spindle design is an heirloom quality item designed for a lifetime of use. It is medium light weight (about 36 grams - around 1.27 oz ) and 300 mm or 11.75 in long.  Made in 2018 by Jory Freyee in the workshops of the SpindleShop, Queensland, Australia.

The shaft of this heirloom quality item is made in Dymondwood for durability, stability and long life. The tip is made from a titanium insert for extreme durability. The point is carefully shaped to be slightly rounded over to avoid damage and scratching to support surfaces, and to ensure really smooth spins at all angles.

The whorl of Queensland Maple is a flattish saucer shape, hollowed on the top side. The  has lovely figure. This design has a long duration high speed spin characteristic. The balance has been tuned and perfected by insertion of concealed weighting in the rim of the whorl as needed. The spindle has been tested both for static and dynamic balance. 

The top point is a slender taper to a narrow point to allow the yarn to slip the tip easily. The bottom point is well defined and designed for an effortless long spin. A support bowl is needed for using this type of spindle. I also offer support bowls on this website and can make one to order if there are none in stock.

The spindle is polished with a high shine French polish and a final gloss of carnauba wax adds durability.
