Spanish term or phrase: Huso de vicosímetro
I am working on a piece that is talking about the use of a viscometer to test the viscosity of a substance. This is a piece of equipment I am not familiar with. How would you trnslate the "huso" of the instrument? I have only seen the word used as a spindle or the drum of a winch, for example.
