"Solar System" Drop Spindles
Introduction . Fancy spindles . Production spindles . Sneak Peek . Whorls . Compliments
Shrink the entire Solar System until the Earth is 1/10 inch
Drill a precision hole for each planet while keeping all the planets in size proportion,
Add all of the moons that are larger than Pluto,
And you have a "Solar System" spindle!
Earth is marked with a golden brass pin.
"Hollow whorl" construction like the "Dragon" and the "Stars and Moons"
The spindle is right around 4 inches in diameter, made of a sandwich of Baltic Birch and a Walnut ring, these spindles have a huge amount of spin time and power.
All of these moons are in scale and proportion to the planets:
One of the surprise to me, was to find out exactly how tiny Pluto (no longer classified as a planet) actually is:
Pluto is the smallest hole on the whorl (drilled with a 0.018" bit). It is MUCH smaller than our Earth's moon!
These spindles are coming out between 1.7 and 2.0 ounces and are priced at $75 each (plus Priority mail) with each one being made "just for you" by Tracy Eichheim.
Take the Solar System for a spin! It's "Out-of-this-world"!
