That's wonderful news, Mike. I hope you can see her. It's at the top of my list of top places in the US that I have not yet visited.

Judith Schulz confirmed that the Top Museum started in May of 1987.  Interestingly enough, it was supposed to only be a one month activity.  It was to coincide with other activities in the town especially with the chocolate festival.  Yet after 30 days, people kept asking about it so they stayed open another month.  People were still asking so they stayed open another month.  And another month.  And another month.  Anyway, you get the idea.  The Top Museum has continued on for 30 some years......but right now they are struggling with some water problems and many of the tops are boxed and put away.

In the recent conversation I had with Judith Schulz, she specifically asked me about the fountain top.  She wondered if I had one or if Don had one.  I don't believe I have ever seen anyone with one except for Lourens. 

If any board people know of one of these around, she is interested.

Wow!!!  I just got off the phone with Judith Schulz and when I looked at my phone I was stunned to see we talked for 40 minutes.  I am trying to work a visit up there in my schedule before the hectic season of Lent so I called her and we covered a number of great topics.  I will talk more about the conversation later but right now I just wanted to update this thread and get it up to the top of the list so she can see it and maybe add to our conversation.

The half orbits look pretty good. Are you using a one-way bearing?

Thanks, not at the moment, I've reconverted my Giulia to full bearing. I enjoy it more that way I think. Before I converted it back, I wasn't able to pull half orbits on the OWB, top was flying off the string, but my form was not as good as it is now.

Thank you for the advice and good ideas. My goal for the RIT festival is 12 new top spinners. I will have multiples of the same tops on hand to use for teaching. I'll post after the event to share how it went.

I'm not sure what the guys meant either but, Superglue (CA glue) can be removed by using fingernail polish remover that contains acetone.  It's fast and works great.
