Love this design but the 90 degree edges on the top and bottom make it a bit rough on the fingers. The smallest bit of rounding on those edges would make this thing AMAZING!!

With this one I always table spin because my hands are a little too small for comfort. If I have time I'll see if I can work a bevel into it. When I designed this my printer wasn't good with any sort of overhang so 90 degrees printed better for me. But now that my printer doesn't care what type of overhang it is I'll try and get a rework done.

ballbarron.com also has good prices on ball bearings.

BTW, this thing is a beast! Spins forever!

Add your pics!!!!

I like seeing what people make!

It's a good spin time. Better with an r188 to 608 adapter. Zerofeud.com sells a 2 pack all metal with buttons for $28

I like that you can vary the weight to experiment with what you like. I also have a smaller design that I haven't uploaded yet :)

Where are you getting the bearings at?
