Summary

OK. I'm really not into the fidget spinner stuff, but I am cheap! After making the Captured Quarter Fidget Spinner, I found out that a nickle is only about 10% less in weight than a quarter, but only costs 20% as much! So I re-mixed my Captured Quarter Fidget Spinner which is a re-mix of Quarter TRI SPINNER - Fidget Toy by 2ROBOTGUY. Re-mix that with a couple of beers, and here you have the Captured Nickle Fidget Spinners! The tri-nickle spinner costs about $1.00. If you can afford a little more, then there is a hex-nickle spinner that will set you back about $1.30.

Note - use 2 nickles per coin hole, use one 608 bearing for the center hole

I have one question, how do you get the nickels into the spinner? Do you have to add them in mid-print or cut away after? I had to cut away some of the lip to fit the nickels inside.

YES. You need to pause the print at about 65% to drop in the coins. The instruction was in the notes. I will make the instruction bolder.

Hello u04601, could I download this spinner and try to print it?? I would your help.

Yes you can. Download whichever file you want and run it through your slicer program, then print it. If you don't have a slicer program, how have you been printing other stuff? Do you need the Gcode files?

Best summary ever!!!
