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: http://amzn.to/2opP42v
2.) Circular Magnet: http://bit.ly/2nUOHJl
3.) Magnetic Strip: http://amzn.to/2oYNhzf
4.) Cutting Tool: http://amzn.to/2nxP7dg
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.
