Delete. I wonder whether we have inadvertently (or even adverently) allowed similar formations to be included for no good reason. DCDuring TALK 21:33, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
Webster has a few. spindle-shaped is one of theirs that we also have; perhaps it suggests more than the shape of a spindle, but I'm not familiar with spindles. Equinox 22:48, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
