Brass Spin Top V2
Limited edition of 15
more than 6 minutes of spin This is the second iteration in this series of brass tops. Version 2 is much easier to spin, spins longer, has a lower center of gravity, and unique spindle-less design.
Each top is machined out of solid brass and finished with a precision ground ultra-hard tungsten carbide tip with ±0.0001" diameter tolerance. The superfine point of contact minimizes friction and gives the top an incredibly long spin.
This top design has no spindle to decrease wobble by bringing the center of mass as low as possible. Most of the material is pushed to the periphery while keeping the overall shape minimal and compact.
The top can be spun with two hands grabbing the large diameter or with one hand by spinning it from the tip with two fingers. The single handed spin takes some practice. The key is to get the top to land with as little wobble as possible. That's hard because it needs to jump onto the surface from your hand. Practice makes perfect! You should be able to get a 5 minute spin or longer in few tries (on glass).
