    Hi, Gunsmoke. This top was fashioned by a retired engineer who runs an Etsy shop called Steampunk Arcade. It's tooled from a British half-penny coin--spins well and, as you've noticed, makes a great conversation piece.:)

    @Gunsmoke609 I forgot to mention the other coins. One is called the "Oracle" coin, from Dead on Paper; the other is specially minted for a site called ellusionist.com, a purveyor of playing cards and other paraphernalia for magicians. Happy shopping!:p

    I am waiting on these to come up for sale. They should be opening their store soon. It's my favorite design so far. If you are interested you can check them out on www.darkapogeedesigns.com.

    Or you just DIY.



    Just as if I wouldn't have enough ideas for a next project, the half penny spinning top is looking very intriguing, too :p

    I'm looking for a good cheap one - these guys recommend the Holisouse - does anyone have experience with this? Just looking to start a small collection with my son and not ready to spend $100+

    I found one like that on the bay for £1.50 (around $1.80) but I ordered one with 2 weights on beerguest for $3.30 to use up a $3 coupon.

    There's many cheap options around to try if such a toy is something for you but you could also look for the JOKR Fidget Spinner Knife if you like something different ;)

    I did that too until one of the old timers at work said I scared him so I had to find something else to do.

    "Fidget spinners" are not for me, although I am the sort of person who tends to find something to do with his hands in idle moments.

    I'm also savvy enough to have noticed that some people seem to get nervous if you start playing with your knife.

    So, I got my own.

    Two sets of planetary gears from an old cordless drill. It's not quite ready, because all the planetary gears and outer rings need something to hold them together. But it's pretty darn neat.
