No. Time to buy a wood lathe a make a 4 1/2 PURPLE HEART TROMPO. And make it light, that wood is heavy like ZEBRA. Go for it while your still young.

Designed a new cap to mod my Quicksilver and Trompo Grande. I am liking it a lot. It adds about 6gms of weight which I really like in the Trompo Grande. It feels turbo charged :) It's nice to be able to store the string as well. I designed it so it snaps in snug so no more tape.

thaaaaaaaat is spiffy  :o the angles are very nice

I like the logo, Jose. What's the significance of "Relampago" here?

Such a beautiful top. And I think the best metal lathe to buy is a Henderson with a 5C chuck. You can cut wood or metal. I did see a nice used on for $ 12,000. but you might find one around $ 4,000.

Thanks Don.

A top company is a dream but if I can offer something unique, I will be happy to do what I can. Yoyo company's have new releases every week and I thought it would be great to have something new for the top world.

Jeremy,
Relampago just means lightning and I liked the ring of it. Lightning in a bottle is what I was thinking. I was born in Mexico so that also was a factor.

Cecil,
I think I will have to come visit you next year and you will have to teach me how to turn :)


Also to anyone that has purchased a top I will send you a couple stickers in the coming week. Thank you!

Jose

Sounds good Jeremy. I would like to see what you can do with the tops I've made.

Whoa, because you can now find and use 3d printing almost anywhere, any chances to get the files used in this project? Would be so much cheaper to send across the world...
Of course if the project lead you to create your own spintop brand I would understand...

While 3D printing is more available it isn't quite a plug and play process. It also isn't cheep from my last check. I mentioned in an earlier post that I was quoted over 150 for the 3" top I make. I am selling them for 80 shipped with custom sting, button and even include stickers. This is my attempt to make the technology accessible while making it worth it to me and fun.
I will not be sharing files to tops I am selling but I could share an earlier smaller version that would be a good first crack at this. I have already shared it with Jim from Paris a few months ago.
Printing larger tops isn't easy and I have many failures to prove it but I think the performance you can get is hard to beat.

I think $ 80. for a three inch top is a great price.

That sounds great! I think it could be a nice addition to our festivals, a booth with a 3d printer creating tops could be a nice and interesting animation...
And I will definitely be one of your customers what's about colors do you have different available wires?
