Spinning top & Iron Thumb Wheel
by Ablapo, published
1. It's a spinning top using a M10 nut as weight.
2. With the hexagon tip you can kick away tiny balls like in one of those roulette game.
3. Write numbers on the nut to make a D6 dice.
4. Use the screw part as "Iron Thumb Wheel" or as balance weight.

That picture was made by a 1.6 seconds exposure with a initial flash light. Then I reduced the exposure in the background by using Gimp2.
Well, I never heard of a dreidel before. Thanks a lot for mentioning!
Regular nuts are hexagonal. But maybe someone can design a quadratic surrounding for it with the four Hebrew letters on it. I'll think about that.

Insert the printed screw into the M10 nut and fill the nut traps with the M3 nuts.
Put the one M3 nut between the printed tip and the M10 nut for interlocking.
Try different bolt length and lock the nut on different heights with additional M3 nuts to find the balance point.
