Summary

Do you fidget? Are you a compulsive pen clickers? This may be the answer.

This little hand spinner offers you something to fidget with that's silent, so as not to annoy those around you.

The bearings used are standard skateboard 608 bearings (I used Spitfire "Cheapshots"), 22mm in diameter.

Skateboard Bearings

Standard Skateboard bearings should fit snugly, and can be affixed with glue if a friction fit is not sufficient.

what type of bearings did you use and where did you get them.

608 skateboard bearings from amazon... theyre like $7 for 8 of them

Simply by selecting a honeycomb infil pattern and then taking out the top and bottom solid layers (all done in the pre-print settings) you can get an awesome result.

That's a really interesting idea!

Hi,
Great project, I love it!
Do you use a special method to put bearings in the holes? I managed to break one while trying :)

You can either sand down the circumference by about .9mm or modify the design to be a larger diameter.

Thanks! I found the problem - my bed adhesion wasn't good enough and print has bent unnoticeably (at least for me). It changed the diameter and that's why it broke. I reprinted it and everything works great! :)

Just ordered some bearings from eBay and have printed the body in woodfill! Nice design!

Hi There,
I saw a post on Reddit about these. I was wondering what the benefit of bearings is? I quite fancy making one but the cheapest 608rs bearings I can find are around $5 each, so do i need 4 or to try it out with 1 work?

Hi there,

the only skateboard bearings I know are 608zz - you can get 10 of them for 5-6$ in China including postage.
608zz are verry common at 3D-printers, because they are cheap.
