Ha! Butterfingers beat me to it. I have one inside one of the moving boxes . . .
With some practice you can make it jump from the track onto the floor and have it continue spinning.

Looks to me like you are missing a handle!


Of course, that's what it is!  Thanks for solving the mystery.  I should have recognized that.  I used to love those things when I was a kid.  I believe it was called a Whee-Lo back then.

Wow!  8) That's a very high-performance haul!

The problem is with the ssl and perhaps added to the size. When I see this forum in https://, as I generally do, your signature images don't load up (I recommend you remove the s).
They do load when I see the forum in http:// However, for that image that didn't work and I had to remove the s from the image url itself for it to load.
I also added a width value to keep it from blowing up.

Strange, spintrix is configured to only serve via https, so putting https makes problem with certificate verification but http which must be redirected later to https works?  :o

This is "Irish Beauty" by Nils Kohring of German Spinning Tops Rule.  It's tungsten copper, over Mokuti (titanium laminate where different grades of titanium are folded together to get contrast), over titanium.

Mermouy wins the thread. Very nice haul, young man!

PrincessTrouble's finger spinner is beautiful!

....but for me it's all about tops that can be thrown around.

That green top is a beauty, no doubt!  8)
Tungsten Copper for maximum mass where it counts, plus titanium for stiffness and lightweight for the rest.
But the metallic iridescent is what makes it a piece of art. Congrats, PrincessTrouble!

Pepe the colored Tuolo top need 28 strands of Aunt Lydia line about 11 feet long. Wind tight and throw like the Colombians. It's fun. The green step on the crown looks like you can attach to it. How deep is it?

Thanks Neffy!!!





This thing is amazing, first string ever, without caring with anything ( reduction percentage and all ) just worked... I might start a thread for ppl to share their reduction percentage they use... so far it seem to work well .. especially to make long string :)

Cheers

My latest brass tops.  The center one has some sweet engraving.  It's a bit difficult to launch due to the high COG but once you master that, it's a smooth spinner.  The rightmost one has a guilloche pattern on it, made with a rose engine. Sort of an old technique for embellishing metal and wood, as I understand it.
