    Looks like a 3D printed planetary gear

    Black spinner was my first. I ordered the copper metal and received it today. Big size difference, but the quality of the copper is amazing.

    Open and close my zippo in my left hand or roll my pen around with the right.

    Open & close my knife where I can. Got a fidget spinner on the way, just to see if I like the idea.

    I have a tiny top, about the size of a quarter, that I spin at my desk. It's great for killing time waiting on web pages to load.

    That Torqbar has some nice work on it!!!

    May be a silly question, but does removing the material for the engravings make the spinning action uneven?

    I think it's not engraving but stamping, therfore it does not remove material.

    No time for fidgeting, but you're a long time member of a forum for stuff in people's pockets. Forgive me if I don't take you too seriously.

    I received the spinner I ordered out of curiosity. Doesn't do anything for me. I went back to flipping my knives.

    Forgive me, but what exactly does a 'spinner' do? Is it like a top which spins on a surface, or do you hold it in your fingers and spin it somehow? Just curious, I see people talk about them all the time here.

    I just ordered my first spinner, a glow in the dark one with ceramic bearings from Going Gear. I don't know whether or not simply spinning one of these as they are intended will satisfy my urges to fidget, but flicking it back and forth between 2 of the 3 "arms" or whipping it back and forth with one of the outer bearings seem like they might be a little more satisfying.
