**Please indicate in the notes to seller box which colors you would like for all pieces- *Main Arm* *Main Arm Inserts* Can choose separate color for each insert. *Secondary Arm* *Shaft* Please see the bottom of the listing for color choices
Here is our newest spindle. It is a standard sized spindle (7" shaft and 5" arms) with a modular main arm. This allows one spindle to be modified to work for a variety of needs. The original standard main arm weighs approx 16.2 grams. The new modular arm can be configured to weigh as little as 14 grams to as much as 56.6 grams. That gives a total spindle weight range of 31 grams to 76 grams
The weights will vary some from color to color.
The extra heavy inserts are made from bronze filled PLA for added weight and a very nice color.
As the material is mostly bronze they will get the a patina over time unless you clean them or add a protective coating. (We are in the process of testing coatings to allow us to give recommendations)
A complete spindle with choice of light or medium inserts is $20 A complete spindle with both light and medium inserts is $22 A complete spindle with just the extra heavy (bronze) inserts is $30 A complete spindle with the light, medium, and extra heavy(bronze) inserts is $34
For those that already have a spindle and would just like to get a new arm and weights please contact me.
These spindles are made from PLA, which may soften in high heat. A warm sunny day outside is fine, but a closed car, even on a cloudy day, or on top of a radiator, might be a problem. If you wouldn’t leave chocolate there, maybe think twice about leaving your spindle there.
**A NEW OPTION is to have a shaft molded from ABS. These new shafts are smoother and stronger! Yellow Sparkle Red Blue Pink Purple (out of stock) Black Green Eggplant (out of stock) Jens Pick Multi (which is a multi colored shaft, I can choose one that best fits your arm color choices if you want)
Please allow up to 2 weeks for the spindle to ship but most spindles will ship within 5 days.
**If you are outside of the US, please note that once I send your package, it may take between 10 days and 2 months to arrive. This is based on the actual times we have seen for past shipments.**

The ability to swap weights really makes it versatile. Starting heavy makes it easier to spin bulky singles. Lightening the load makes it easier on my hands. Jen got it to me in time for the start of TdF! Thank you! Starflower is a hard worker. :)
My first line of shipping is USPS First Class. I try to have every yarn and fiber sale out into the hands of the postal service within one business day of a sale. For spindles and fiber tools that are 3D printed, I try to have those orders out within 3-4 days but ask that you allow 2 weeks. In the event of a delay in filament delivery or printing issues on my end, I will notify you. Insurance is always an option if a buyer wishes to purchase it, as is faster shipping.
