Fidget spinners are all the rage right now. So I decided to make a few of my own. Here is the first kind I made:
All it took was a trip to the craft store for glass pebbles and superglue, and a trip to a parts store for some used skate bearings.
If you want to make one, just be careful not to get any glue where it could rub and slow the spinning. (Or on your fingers . . . you’ll be thoroughly stuck.) Also, it is a lot easier to get it evenly weighted with four instead of three weights.
The pebbles do tend to break off if you’re not careful, but now you’ve got a unique spinner to keep your hands busy.
Here are two other designs I tried: bike chain and acorn.
