1823 So, I tried upgrading my January 2018 Hangshi spinner with ceramic bearings in the leaves and a TC60 titanium bearing in the center. I had to experiment with some different types of lubricant, but finally settled on plain old WD-40 because the silicone sprays cost a lot more and weren't performing any better. The center action is now much better. The problem I'm now having is that the ceramic bearings are now spinning a little TOO well, to the point that I think the counter-spin is really slowing down my times. Any other /b/ros have this problem? Is there something I can use to mitigate the excess leaf inertia but retain the smooth center motion?
Back in my day we had fingerboxes, and we were happy with that.
Oh man, I've been restoring my vintage single hole lately. Passed down from my dad's side of the family.
>wd-40 as a lubricant
the leaf bearings were only ever there for inertia and silly tricks and shit, they do not spin at all in normal fidget spinner use, I don't know why they ever bothered using bearings there at all when they should have just used counter weights. Shut up tldr, there is no effect to bearings being there at all. Yes this was bait, yes I responded to it. I'm autistic.
>puts the mass of a flywheel in the center
>fucks up bearings with oil

>thinking people are stupid enough to not notice that the outer bearings will spin, and that it even matters if they do
0/7 i'd say
>notice that the outer bearings will spin, and that it even matters if they do
O, but it does, dear sir, it indeed does. Ever heard about a little thingy called gyro.?? didnt think so.
Vintage is so last year. It's all about the digital synthetic hybrids coming out of Asia now.
Do ppl really care this much about fidget spinners ?
Synthetics aren't even real fingerboxes. Fuck off with your Ching Chong shit, newfag.
Fuck off cunt. That isn't even a fingerboxe.
It's just a shitty reproduction. Real third Reich FB's didn't have those kinds of markings.
Do you have a gen 3 or 4? Might consider a hybrid bearing and a proper lubricant; are your counterweights providing enough torque?
When I was young kids cared about engine tuning. Yes. 16-year olds cared about engine tuning and engineering.
We got pussy from it. chicks got wet from speed.
Ever wonder about how those massive post-war generations came about?
Todays kids worry about fidget spinner bearings.
No wonder we're dying out
Stone made, Ayo, second Gen, I wanted to get the most for my money so I went with stone. They are alright but the learning curve is a little steep; I would still have to recommend wood to a beginner. Ease of use over long lasting reliability.
Yep. Im an old fart. Tell me what you're going to do about it.
they would only if the force generated by the (light) inner rings inertia is higher than the roll resistance
which it usually is not
and if it were it would be bad because it'll take energy so it slows down the whole process
but this whole discussion is fruitless, because of two reasons:
1) this whole shit is a forced meme
2) you are even too stupid to basic physics
