That was a very informative and well done tutorial, Cecil. Thank you!

I just wished you would use metric!  ;D

Yep, I have no idea what he's speaking about when he talk sizes :P
I will attempt the project tho!

Cheers

Tao, when I go to Safeway to buy meat they don't even know the decimal system let alone the metric. Both are good. Here we know what the 50 yard line is and we know what 65 miles an hour is. It would be nice if the world used just one, and we all spoke the same language.
There is a lot of people in the world I would like to talk to. And you have this top = = = let's see you make the modifications and make us a video PLEASE.

I wrapped  about seven wraps of 3m tape on the pliers and it came out easy. The metal is very hard so it takes a little while to file down. If you use a grinder for the neck the wheel grinds down to fast, and you get a big radius. So I just used the hand drill and small round file for the neck. The tip Jose sells might work it's .312 and the Taiwan top is 316 about. So you would have to use 3m clear tape to hold it in. I would just do the hand work. You can get a great top for $ 35.00. And Jose has tips and Neff makes lines Your good to go.

Amazingly, I was watching this video and saying to myself - that looks like Larry D!!!  Then the video stops.  My phone won't let me see the rest of the video because someone is calling me.  I look closer to see who is calling me and it is................Larry D!!!

So weird.

Must be DRAGONS in the air. I'm waiting for it to clear up where I can make my video of the 5.0 top in action.

I just seen this Tao and yes it was a bad balance. I've had to balance all three of them so far. I have another one on the way and this time I'm going to try one of Jose's tips. I just made a new line this time 24 tens and four 20's. It will do a single body cork screw but not a double. The neck is .275 and I think I will grind it down to .225.

Another print for spin top tips. Let me know what you think? I did not put dimensions in  or degrees. That way you can put what you think is better.
I like ---- shoulder angle 40 deg. ----- neck angle 45 deg. ----- head angle 50 deg.

I like the slope on the shoulder less steep than on the neck. Perhaps, 50 to 60 degrees as measured on the drawing.

Jose's tip is 50 deg. That make's the tip longer. The 50 deg. is like the large Spintastic and  the 40 deg. looks like the Duncan Ripcord.
