I have friends who bought their spinners for $20 or $15. That to me is too much. When I looked closer at my friends' spinners, I saw that they were very simple. Most were 3D printed, but I don't have one yet. Large scale printer coming, though!? I thought that I could make a spinner from barely anything that cost next to nothing.
Step 1: Gather Materials
There are six components to the spinner. Yes, six. I had these lying around, but if you want to buy them, it will cost around $4-5.
TIES---Any hardware store, or here- https://www.amazon.com/Plastic-Cable-Ties-100-Pack-Black/dp/B002C0SKBW This is where you get the ties so you can give them out as Christmas presents for 10 years!
You will need 3 zip ties, one at least six inches in length. You will also need two smaller zip ties, around two or three inches. Along with the ties, you will need three bearings. I got mine from some old roller blade wheels, but any bearing will do fine. The ones I used were ABEC-5 bearings. The bearings were a bit slow, so I greased them up and now they spin great!
