Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Required Parts
You would need
1) 22MM OD & 8MM ID ball bearings *9
2) Super Glue,Araldite or Fewikwik
3) Acrylic if you want to make the one which i have done in the video
4) LED optional
Remove the Lid of the bearing which will be going to be in the centre.
I would suggest you to by a good bearing for the centre one
Step 3: Clean the Grease of the Centre Bearing
Remove the Lid from the main bearings & clean it with WD40 or alcohol so the excessive grease is removed.
once you open the lid and clean the grase you will notice that the bearing has become really free.
Step 4: Stick the Cheap Bearings Close to Each Other
Now Stick the six bearings close to each
other with Super Glue, Fevikwik Or Araldite(Araldite would be the best).
Please be care ful while using the glue it should not go inside the centre bearing
Step 5: Let It Dry for Sometime
Once you stick the ball bearing it would lookg something like this as shown in the image
Now wait till the glue is dried up completely.
Step 6: Ready for the Spin
Now you makeshift fidget spinner is ready to use
Step 7: Acrylic Fidget Spinner
After I made my makeshift fidget spinner i designed my acrylic fidget spinner
You can refer the file i have attached in the instructables you can use it to cut on acrylic or MDF.
