Snyder Spindles Mini Destiny Turkish Spindles
This Mini Destiny Turkish Spindle from Snyder Spindles is a hybrid variable weight spindle. It's made of 3D printed plastic arms, hand turned hardwood shafts and steel screws. The combination of materials used allows for the mass to be on the outside of the spindle, to increase duration of the spin.
Arm Length: 2 3/4" ( 6.98 cm)
Weights: Fully Weighted 0.53 oz (15g)
Half Weighted 0.42 oz (12g)
No Weights 0.32 oz (9g)
The spindle also comes with assembly instructions, 1 extra cap screw, a card with the cap screw info (in case you lose more than one bolt).
What makes the Mini Destiny Turkish Spindle different?
It uses 4 smaller arms that nest together to create the whorl, rather than 2 long arms. When using this patent pending design it is possible to have weight on the tips of the arms and still be able to disassemble the spindle to get the center pull ball off. The weights are also removable so you can fine tune the spindle to your liking, even when you have yarn on the spindle. The spindles are 3D printed from Polylactic acid (PLA). PLA is derived from renewable resources like cornstarch and tapioca roots and is biodegradable. The plastic starts to melt at 140-149 °F, so keep them where you'll also be comfortable!
