Tried to post a "make" but getting errors trying to upload pictures
Here's what I made:

Only problem I had was with the cap fitting the box, but my filament may be to blame :-)

Printed in PLA with suports (if the axis was flipped upside down, I wouldn't have needed supports, but I didn't feel like flipping it myself)
Short axis
150mm base var2
15mm opening was good for Temptations cat treats

(also, I accidentally cut the power to my printer on the lids and axis. I blame the first one on my cat, but the second one was totally my fault for moving the loose wire :-D)

This is the best thing EVER!!!!!

Can you resize it to around 200mm or even smaller, so that the bearing still fits?

I'll have a look, when I'm back at home - may take a while. :-)

ok, there are now 150mm-diameter bases and a shorter axis available :-)

Thanks very much dude!
I will print it within the coming week and post a Make here.

Bought the ball bearings didn't fit the spinner

The hole in the base is a little bit wider than 22mm, so the bearing should slide in very easy and the pin of the axis is a little bit bigger than 8mm to fit well.
You may check that the slicer does not resize the model when you open it (I assume that the printer is callibrated already)
