Introduction: Make Your Fidget Spinner Spin Longer

I am an undergraduate student pursuing B.Tech in EEE(Electrical and Electronics Engineering).I am...

Recently i had bought myself a Fidget Spinner for a cheap rate of 50 rupees.

To my surprise ,when put to test it was very hard to spin the fidget and would not even complete more than 1 rotation.

So i decided to open up my spinner and inspect the ball bearings because that is what was causing trouble spinning the fidget.

So in this instructable i would be telling you how to open up your Fidget and do the cleaning .

So lets do it...

Step 1: Materials Required

You require the following materialsto get your spinner spinning

>Kerosene

>Container

>lubricant

>flat edged screw driver

>compass

Step 2: Open the Fidget Cap

Using a flat edged screw driver remove the caps from both the side of the Fidget Spinner.

Step 3: Open the Metal Casing

My Fidget spinner had a ZZ809 metal casing.

Metal casing which protects the bearings from coming in contact with the external environment and help prevents dust and moisture depositing on the bearing.

Make use of a compass and remove the casing from both side carefully.

Step 4: Clean the Bearings

Now that you have removed the Metal casing .

Put the bearing inside kerosene and stir it for about 2-3 minutes.

Once done you will get a clean and shiny surface on the bearings.

Step 5: Add Lubricant

Add lubricant to the ball bearings which would reduce friction and smoothen spinning

Step 6: Build It Back

Assemble all parts of the spinner again and now you have a Fidget which can spin longer than before.

    After cleaning the bearing, don't put oil, it will run more time. The oil in bearings is to protect them against wearing and in a spinner, that is not a problem

    No, it won't ! Lubricant will only improve the performance. It's oil, not grease. Thicker oil may slow it a tad, but won't reduce the bearings lifespan.
