Better than they look spindles

Ref: 2339


Well they look a bit rough don't they. We were called out to a job last week where a large old house had been torched and was about to be demolished and we were given 2 days to clear it before it was ...

Long grey painted cast iron spindles

Ref: 2338


We have 21 of these longer than normal cast iron spindles which may well be Georgian rather than Victorian. Nice delicate things. approx 40 inches tall...

Black double bar spindles

Ref: 2336


Only 10 of these, measuring approx 34.5 inches long, but a fairly common pattern seen in the Glasgow tenements (though these actually came from a film set!)...

Skinnier cast iron spindles

Ref: 2282


34 of these from a job we did earlier this week, a couple have the top lugs knocked off where I (alas, for it was indeed me feeling a bit tired) hit them with my hammer while knocking them out of the ...

Jellymould pattern cast spindles

Ref: 2281


Fairly commonly found design this, one we call the jelly mould due to the central design. We actually have more of these in the warehouse from a different job, but the proportions are ever so slightly...

The most popular style of cast spindle

Ref: 2221


Indeed. This is the style you see in so many buildings in Glasgow and Edinburgh and presumably in many other towns and cities, and yet its a style we don't get very often. Most of our stock of spindle...

Turquoise painted iron spindles

Ref: 2200


48 (as of Dec 2016) of these lovely cast spindles I took out of a church last week. The church, in central Glasgow was built in the 1880's. Pretty design and I rather like the colour (the handrail was...

Pitch pine spindles with handrails

Ref: 2162


We have several lengths of this lovely ballustrading from a job in central Glasgow. The amount of work thats gone into making it would have been enormous and it feels really good to be able to save it...

Bearsden gold spindles

Ref: 2079


We have 28 of these (june 2016) from a house up in Bearsden measuring between 36-39 inches long. The stair they came from was very tight and steep and a couple of the spindles have the very top flour...

Edinburgh new towns finest

Ref: 2067


Well, you do get fancier ones but these are pretty good.These would have alternated down the stairs with a fancy and then a simple one and were only removed as a basement area was being turned into a ...

Chunky newel post

Ref: 2026


A really heavy cast iron newel post, a right beauty, that we bought via accidental good fortune. Going to Aberdeen before christmas the Forth bridge was shut, so we had to go via the M9, but this was ...

chunky pitch pine spindles

Ref: 1947


We have about 39 of these from a staircase which was removed from a grand house in Edinburgh recently. Some are from the landing (and so flat on the top/base) but most are cut at an angle. They are al...

Fat chunky cast spindles

Ref: 1865


we have about 7 of these measuring 38 inches tall. There is some variance in the proportions of the design so that if they were installed in a row they would look a bit different, but on a staircase ...

barleytwist timber spindles

Ref: 1812


Good run of pitch pine spindles we recently bought from the old Langside college. Not the easiest things to make and I really like the way they taper in towards to top. Should strip easily as well....

Wooden Spindles

Ref: 1795


We have a lot of these just now from an ongoing job we're doing in Edinburgh. They are pitch pine and we have about 70 of them, so far. We have noticed that one of the balconies they came off was newe...

Fancy newel post

Ref: 1711


About as nice a newel post as you will see.52 inches high and with a good undamaged base....

Early Cast Spindles

Ref: 1604


We have 29 of these (june 2013) measuring between 35 and 42 inches long. Fairly unusual pattern with a central bar with a foliated branch curling around it. These came from a house which was recently ...

Newel posts

Ref: 1406


Sorry but these are now sold and being reinstated in a lovely house near Doune....

cast iron spindles

Ref: 1278


These came from a house in Prestwick and we only have 8 of them unfortunately. They were originally intersperced with a simpler spindle. 36 inches tall....

cast iron spindles

Ref: 1254


Probably the prettiest spindles I've seen, really very delicate with very fine detailing and in great condition. Unfortunately we only have 5 available. 36 inches tall....

cast iron spindle

Ref: 1239


One of the most common styles of spindle around, though the proportions can vary slightly, there are 26 in this batch at between 36 and 41 inches. info correct as of 26/7/2011....

cast iron spindle

Ref: 1237


Like the previous spindles, these came from the old heart of the city. There are only 6 available at about 39 inches and a couple of them have one of the sticky-out curl bits missing, but they are suc...

cast iron spindles

Ref: 1068


We have about 23 of these at between 33 and 38 inches tall as of 25/7/2011 I was once told that although these are a relatively common pattern, they are about the most difficult to cast due to ...

cast iron spindles

Ref: 1067


We have about 5 of these as of 20/06/13 and they measure between about 34 and 38 inches. They match a large set we had from Bute a year or so ago which were painted red and which may still be o...

wooden spindles

Ref: 1048


We took these out last week along with the newel post seen below. Its a good run of 44 spindles with their handrails and base rails. Quite detailed and made of pine, probably pitch....
