Been working on this one for a while.  It's made from HDPE I melted and supposed to be a OWB top, I thought I got it done, but the OWB won't lock on the Delrin tip  :'(  It's probably going to take a bit more love to get it working like I want.  Ended up locking the bearings to play with it fixed, it does okay... at least it looks pretty  :)
3.5" diameter.


Wow.. this is a pretty top!!! Good job!!!

Great work, Jospin!  I hope it spins as well as it looks because it looks terrific.  It also looks like you are set for some late October spinning!!!

Thanks Walt!!!!





EDIT: did a proper string, 6 x4ply, now I can regen this beast :) 4x4 might go better but I failed when doing my string.. will need to retry :)








This top is a monster!!! I barely am able to do rollercoaster on it.. I was able to pull 3 wheels of fortunes ealier.. but ... hard =)
Also I am very happy to have bought the 4 inch... 5 & 6 would have probably been unmanagable for me... =)

Cheers y'alls. Then I can do something with it, I'll post a video :)
I also need to figure a thinner string too!

ps: my hand, wrist and shoulder now hurts =)

Here we go, 3 new Strummol8 to my collection :





New ones are the red & orange stbs & the green giulia!

From left to right,

- OWB Giulia
- Fixed STB
- OWB Love
- Bearing STB
- Bearing Giulia

:) I'm not sure they will stay that way, I'm waiting for a nice diabolo shaped tip from jospin... it's not impossible the green will become fixed... I have 3 spare OWB but I failed at installing it in the Red STB. The well is just way too big :(... I might retry or just enjoying as a fixed tip.. it's super fun, it walks like a champion! Especially considerign all my other tops don't walk that much :)

Cheers

Just got these. When did they come packaged with a die? I’m trying to figure out what year these are from (roughly).
