    I still don't get the craze. My goal is to unburden my pockets of clutter that doesn't do anything. To each his own.

    What makes you think a top doesn't do anything?

    I don't count entertainment. I realize that has value to some people. Other than that, I don't see the purpose.

    Where do you guys get your base to spin on? Do you make them or order them with the top?
    Some are pretty pricey like the ones for hardened steel tops.
    I looked at some 75mm concave mirrors and glass on Amazon and the reviews are a lot of people who make their own.
    I had an idea of getting a round wooden container and putting a concave mirror on the bottom then rigging and circling some lights an inch up then topping it with the conclave glass.

    Just curious if you guys like steel, glass or mirror best to spin on and why?

    Holy Crap!! 6 Grand for a top? Only guys with FU money (or no wife/girlfriend) can buy one of those. If I had 6K to spend, I'd buy myself a highly accurate rifle and a crapload of ammo.

    Here's the latest BILLETSPIN: The Matrix. These pics show the Stainless Steel / Timascus / Stainless Steel combo, but there will be many other configurations of this 9 piece top.

    Here's mine. Got it off Etsy a while ago. Fun thing to play with while browsing the web. It does spin long enough for the me to forget it's still spinning. I think that says more about me than the quality of the spinner though ;).
