Schulte Fused Aluminum & Brass
"Schulte" Fused Aluminum & Brass
Aluminum & Brass Spinning Top with Silicon Nitride Ceramic Bearing
The Schulte Story
The “Schulte” was designed several years ago after acquiring my first metal lathe. As I was gaining experience turning different materials, applying knurling, cutting threads, etc., I made a list of projects as challenges for myself on the use of the lathe, one of which was a brass spinning top.
As I was sketching out my first design and planning the order of machining operations, a close friend texted me and said, “Now that you have a lathe, you should make a metal spinning top!” Enjoying the serendipity of the moment, I decided that I would eventually give him the first brass top I created, and if I ever produced it I would name it after him. So I did. After expanding into a few other metals, I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and beauty of this fused aluminum and brass version.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!
