Bearing Basics: Steel vs Ceramic Hybrid vs. Full Ceramic Bearings

You really can't talk about spinners for long without coming on to the subject of bearings. These little pieces of refined engineering have been re-purposed by the Hand Spinner community into the heart of these funny little devices. As you might expect for a product that has long been an integral...

Homemade Puzzle Piece Spinner

Homemade Puzzle Piece Spinner

A somewhat crappy little puzzle piece spinner milled on a Nomad 883 Pro desktop mill from 360 Brass. The highlight is the ACER Racing R188 Hybrid Ceramic Bearing. Even this ultra light spinner with weight distributed around the bearing spins for 3 minutes plus. Pretty impressive. Not a bad deal for...

Cognito

Cognito

The Cognito made by Joseph Lingua of the eponymous LMS Gear is in it's second iteration. I figured I had better pick one up and see what all of the hype was. And as with so many other popular high end spinners, I was in for a long wait. Sometimes, you're disappointed after that wait. This wasn't...

Leather Fidget Spinners

Leather Fidget Spinner

Leather fidget spinners? Man, cows have it rough. What aren't they good for? Victims of their own delicious flesh and soft skin. And Southwest CNC is here to remind us of that very fact with a first. The Cracked Skull Premium Leather Fidget Spinner....

CKF Pepyakka 4.0

CKF Pepyakka 4.0

Here's a first look at the much anticipated CKF Pepyakka 4.0! Wait a second... Ok, this is hilarious. This might be my favorite spinner company in the industry as of right now. The message is put as only Russians can put it. And while the broken English gives it sort of an almost endearing quality...

Meteorite Fidget Spinner Knife

Meteorite Fidget Spinner Knife

The Meteorite Fidget Spinner Knife seeks to economize your EDC footprint by combining a pocket knife with a fidget spinner. Wait...that sounds like a bad idea unless you're looking to lose a little weight in your hands. But, I kind of love it....

Rubberize Your Fidget Spinner

Rubberize Your Fidget Spinner

This is a simple DIY idea of putting a rubber bumper around the outside of your fidget spinner. I love super easy do-it-yourself projects with a material list and steps of one. These were done with men's silicone wedding bands which are under $10 for packs of 3. That's my kind of price for a wedding...

triFDGT

TRiFDGT

Building off of their popular iFDGT design, Venom Defense & Design will be offering a tri-arm design called the TRiFDGT promising to offer more mass, better balance and easier fidgeting. And of course some milled slot for tritium vials....

FEGVE Fidget Top

FEGVE Fidget Top

I'm always looking for the next interesting fidget toy design. Something novel, or at least a bit different. This led me to FEGVE's Fidget Top. A combination fidget spinner and spinning top from China sold through Spinner Hub. About 6 weeks after placing my order, and waiting for my package to...

Damasteel Phat Boy Nano

Damasteel Phat Boy Nano

If you're looking to get into some more exotic metal spinners then this might be a good opportunity without having to spend $400. There have been grumblings of the extra small size of the Phat Boy Nano, but that plays into our favor here as there is relatively less exotic material needed. If you're...
