Materials of Fidget Spinners

  • 3D printed
  • Metals (Brass, Copper, Aluminium, Titanium etc)
  • Zip/Cable ties (Diy, not 3D printed)
  • Wood
  • Acrylics
  • Munson Ring

In terms of material, metals seems to be pricy but aluminum consider the cheapest of all but it dents easily. The heavier the material of a spinner, the longer it spins and it also increase strain depending how heavy it is. Likewise for the materials that are light-weighted, shorter spin time but it’s easy to manipulate.  (C)A member from Spinspace

  • Quad

Types of ball bearings

  • 608zz (frequently used. Eg, bones reds highly recommended)

Quality of ball bearings

  • Stainless steel
  • Hybrid Ceramic (an upgrade for those who want to replace it with SS)
  • Full Ceramic (better performance, self preferrence)

Hybrid and Full Ceramic bearing depending on spin time, noise level produce, caged/cageless, sizes of the bearing, they provide minimal and large difference in terms of pricing.  (C)A member from Spinspace

Maintenance of ball bearing

  • Apply dish soap to the naked bearing, spin to agitate the bearing in the presence of dish soap. 1 minute step.

  • Spin the bearing under running water to remove soap and encapsulated grime. 30 seconds step.

  • Repeat the 1st and 2nd step mentioned above. Minimum of 3 times at least.

  • Blow-out the bearing with compressed air from both sides of the bearing. The bearing should spin up to a high pitch while this is taking place.

  • Do take note if your max spin time drops by about a minute or more, repeat step 1 and 2 to clean your bearing again.

Above steps are recommended tips from Fabian Botero, owner  of Spin Space Official.
