DIY: Gallium Fidget Spinner

Published: June 02, 2017

The Gallium Fidget Spinner idea falls into the "Why didn't I think of that?" category of DIY projects. I'm aware of gallium and its low melting point. I'm aware of fidget spinners. Why did my subconscious let me down? Good thing DaveHax is here to pick me up.

This is a very simple idea that anyone can execute on. All you need is some Plastilina Modeling Clay, some Gallium and a bearing. And how lucky that both are readily available on Amazon.

This is what DIY projects are all about to me. Simple, only two easily attainable materials, and after that, you're only limited by your imagination. What a great idea by me.

In case you're wondering, gallium has a density of 5.91 grams per cubic centimeter which is a little over 2 times that of aluminum. But less than brass or copper which weighs in at 8.96 g/cm3.
