In this instructable you will see how I built a 3-in-one fidget spinner made out of wood, some bit holders and a bearing.
Firstly, I cut the piece of wood in the dimensions I wanted.
After I designed the shape of the fidget spinner on the wood, I started cutting it with a jigsaw.
Then I sanded it, very well in order to give it the desired shape.
Now, with a 3mm drill bit, I drilled the five edges, in the middle, on the top side of the wood.
After that, I cut the bit holders at the right length and measured their thickness.
I drilled the holes with a 10mm drill bit and then with a router I started rounding all the edges.
Then, I sanded it again very well and gave its final shape.
Now, I removed the metal shields from the bearing and cleaned it with WD-40 in order to spin faster.
I measured the diameter of the bearing and I drilled a 22mm hole.
And I placed the bearing and the bit holders together with the piece of wood in order to see that everything fits right.
And I started placing the bit holders into the holes, one by one, using super glue.
After the glue dried up, I drilled every bit holder with the wood separately, placing a screw between them, so that the bit holders can’t be moved when I use the fidget spinner as a multi bit screwdriver.
I cut the screws with a hacksaw, sanded it again very well and the Fidget Spinner is ready for use!
