Looking for finger tops
« on: January 14, 2019, 08:36:34 AM »

I honestly didn't know where to put this. I love finger tops.. I've been using this one :





forever but I'd be curious to get a different one. Now the obvious one is forever spin but I find the extremely expensive considering how much the
review in this thread are kind of a mix bag. At 38$ for their 'cheapest' one... That's the price of an Spintastic Hornet :P

Anyway. My Q is, does anyone has recommendation for finger tops and where to buy them ?
Thanks
Cheers,
paxl

ps: I'm based in Canada =)

I bought a brass top from ebay for only $11.  My longest timed spin with it is 5 min 6 sec.  It will consistently spin for 5 minutes.  I bought an inexpensive 2x magnifying mirror for the smooth concave surface that helps with the spin.  The seller has many tops listed https://www.ebay.com/usr/olsonatha?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2754

I occasionally buy LEGO parts from sellers outside the US, but not from Canada, as the shipping's way too expensive. Much cheaper to ship from Europe, and not much slower.

I'm thinking about it... If I do I plan on trying to compete just for kicks and giggle ( there is no way I can scale my skills to the current level of competition ) But I'm sure
as hell will have fun trying :P

But yeah, will need to see how vacations pans out with the family
