Partly cuz it works even better in bowls . . .
Are you sure? I have not tried it myself and I know it's in the 1965 patent, but my guess is that it will force you to lean the top even more, making it harder. But a bowl should help with the counter-spin/precession regens. I'm away from most of my tops this weekend, so I cannot check it.

Very interesting!!!  We were just talking about that in the thread "favorite top trivia."  Ta0 has met Rusty before, as he is from San Antonio.  I was very humored about the entrance with Groucho Marx.  It is not everyday that top spinners meet such famous celebrities.

No I think i would like to learn how to work with Lego’s and get with my Great Grndaughter and finger spin some tops. When I showed her the 4 7/8 mixed wood Beatle Juice top her eyes got so big I told her Mommy I will leave the top for her. She is my greatest fan.

This video was last year.

Just posted a video of my LEGO version of "plate regeneration" here.

After looking closely at the regeneration process, I've decided to call it "rock 'n roll regeneration" (RRR) -- partly cuz it works even better in bowls, and partly cuz that's what actually goes on: You keep rockin' the arena, flat or concave, just so, and the top keeps rollin' downhill, picking up speed along the way.

Still not very good at RRR, but it's a very enjoyable multisensory experience with interesting things to see, hear, touch, and sense with your whole body. Highly recommended, and something you can engineer on your own.

Now that was enjoyable to watch. Such beautiful LITTLE tops. Where did you get that lid? Now with that kind of talent get a wood lathe - and start making 4.0 inch tops. Now if that sounds offensive- make 3. 3/4 fighting tops and I will meet you in the battle ring. Life is GOOD. Isn’t there anybody that will grab a big fighting top and stand up to a crippled old man? I will be 74 in September. This is United States we can be the best trick fighters in the WORLD. I’ll be BACK.

Thanks, Cecil! I'm having way too much fun as it is, so we need a division of labor here: You do the big top, lathe thing you do so well, and I'll do mine.

PS: The lid came from a 40-quart under-bed storage bin.
