Step 1: Material

I was dismantling an old hard drive, when boom I'm before this beauty of a piece!

Step 2: Assembly

the piece of metal has the perfect size (by chance) for my spare bearing.
So I cleaned it and used some epoxy glue. Et voilà !

Step 3: Result

thanks

    Can you share the exact model of hard drive please?

    I've not seen this component in recent (post 2000) drives.

    Easily the most sensible fidget spinner I've seen published, no machining, spare / scrap parts, a little epoxy and as you say, Et voilà !
