Introduction: Awesome Spinning Toy Made From Soda Cans

About: Innovative Projects, Diy's, Life Hacks

In this Instructable, I made a spinning toy from 6 steel soda cans.

What's needed:

  • 6 Steel Soda cans
  • 2 x nuts
  • Neodymium magnet
  • Hot glue and permanent markers
  • Glass surface like a table or mirror for spinning the toy

Step 1: Cut Out the Bottoms

Cut out the bottoms from all the cans.

Step 2: Make a Disk Nr1

Put 1 or 2 neodymium magnets in the disc and close it with hot glue.

You can use a permanent marker to colour the disk for easy identification.

Step 3: Make a Disk Nr2

Glue a nut in the centre.

Turn the plate with a nut around and make a dent in the centre.

Glue it together and colour it.

Step 4: Make a Disk Nr3

Third disk is exactly the same as the last one, but without a dent.

Step 5: Time to Play

For the best result, spin the disk on a glass surface.

You can spin a single disk or join them together for different effects.

My favourite combination is a magnetic disk+disk with a dent.


For different effects, try to change disk sides.
