I got a package today.
It was a "special" package. Well, to me it was.
It was my NEW drop spindle (high whorl?).
It's not the highest quality of drop spindle but for $6.50 INCLUDING shipping, I cant complain.
As you can see, I've started using it right away. I'm not sure what to think of it yet, but I'll play with it some more to see how well I can master it.
