Dervish style supported spindle in Blackheart Sassafras and Dymondwood - medium weight, titanium tipped. This spindle is a stock item and you will receive the items in these photos. This original design for a a small support spindle has a thin straight shaft and a small whorl at the base. The spindle shaft is made from Dymondwood (TM), this is a composite material made from dyed birch wood veneers . The material has the advantage that it is warp-free and dimensionally stable - Dymondwood will resist warping with humidity changes. Dymondwood is particularly ideal for supported spindles as the material is very hard wearing. The ti is made from a hard titanium alloy insert for extreme long service life. The whorl is turned from an attractive piece of Blackheart Sassafras a from Tasmania, with beautiful colour variation. The spindle is finished to a very smooth surface, polished with a french polish and then a final gloss of carnauba wax for a long lasting shine and protection. Your spindle is checked for quality and spin before despatch and comes with tip protectors, is packed with some Tasmanian Merino roving, and a signed tag with the woods used listed and date of making. This spindle style has a medium fast spin, long duration and easy handling due to the low centre of gravity created by placing of the largest whorl diameter as near to the base as is practical. This makes it a very stable spindle, perfect for a beginner and it will make an experienced spinner happy too. Dimensions - spindle length overall 245 mm, (10 in), weight 33 grams (1.17 oz approx). All my spindles are tested before despatch.
