Introduction: DIY MAGNETIC FIDGET SPINNER | How to Make Hand Spinner Fidget Toys

This tutorial will show you how to build a simple magnetic hand spinner fidget toy.

Step 1: Required Items

Making a magnetic fidget spinner requires three simple supplies and some sort of cutting tool.

Here are links to purchase the required items for a magnetic fidget spinner:

1.) Bearings:
2.) Circular Magnet:
3.) Magnetic Strip:
4.) Cutting Tool:

If you have a cutting tool of your own you will not need #4.

Step 2: Cut the Magnetic Strip

Cut 4 small pieces from the magnetic strip. These 4 pieces of the magnetic strip will act as a spacer between the bearing and the magnet.

Step 3: Assemble the Spinner

It is now time to assemble the magnetic hand spinner fidget toy.

1.) Insert the bearing into the middle of the magnet.

2.) Insert the magnetic strips so they are in the North, South, East and West position like a compass. Or if you prefer clock positions 12, 3, 6 and 9.

Step 4: Spin and Modify

Your magnetic fidget spinner is now complete and ready for you to play with!

You can customize your spinner with anything that is magnetic such as other magnets or nuts and bolts.

    Where can you get a skateboard bearing?

    A skate shop. ;) you can buy little boxes of bearings. You don't need to take apart a skateboard. Skaters have to buy bearings periodically and put new ones in. They come in sets. You can buy all kinds. Really good ones feel like you're riding on smooth glass. They'd make a great spinner. Try CCS? (California cheap skates), local skate shops, they'd probably have clearance boxes.

    There is a link in the instructions to purchase the required items.

    Thank you very much!

    Take apart an old skateboard, or buy online, they are cheap

    Thank you! I saw my classmates bringing some bearings in but I didn't know where to get them *cough cough*
