Item details

Doo wee ooo! Dr. Who spinners, rejoice! This police public call box spindle will make you the hit of any spinning meetups you attend! Let your geek flag fly, soaring high above the rest.

What sets Metis Industries spindles apart from other spindles is their physics and how they were designed. These spindles are designed to spin for a long time. This is because their moment of inertia is high. Because the whorls are 3D printed, they are precisely weighted and this contributes to the balance of our spindles. Further, they were created with math. I use a program called OpenSCAD to write the code to generate the whorls for 3D printing. Up in the photos section, you can see the 3D generated image of the whorl.

The shaft is teak oil treated oak. It is ready to paint, just waiting for you to unleash your imagination!

If you need more than available in this listing or other colors, please feel free to contact with me for a custom order!

Shaft: 10.5" / 26.7 cm
Whorl: 2.24" / 5.7 cm
Weight: 0.95 oz / 27 g

Note: Because these are handmade, shaft lengths may vary by a couple mm and weights may vary between spindles by a gram or so. Whorl sizes are always consistent with the size listed. This listing is for one spindle in your choice of listed color only.

Average review
Spins very fast and unspins equally fast. You need nimble fingers. This one at my skill level is good for park and draft technique. My package came with a tiny little surprise 3-D printed sheep. All fun items!

My favorite spindle so far! light and it gets comments and exclamations of delight whenever I take it out! I painted the window panes white, and it looks so awesome when it spins!

Absolutely adorable and seems surprisingly well balanced. I am really excited to start spinning on this.
