DIY Metal Fidget Spinner

The Fidget Spinner craze is upon us

You either get it or you don’t. The popular craze for fidget spinners swept in fast over the past few months. The toy has been advertised as helping people who have trouble with focusing or fidgeting by acting as a release mechanism for nervous energy or psychological stress. Whether the claims are true or not, one thing is for sure – these toys can be addictive. You can find cheap versions almost anywhere now. For those that truly love these little toys, having your own unique version is a must. And if you have the skills, custom and unique metal fidget spinners are in high demand.

A basic fidget spinner consists of a bearing in the center with three blades. Once you have your ball bearing you can make a fidget spinner out of any material you wish, in any shape you like, with as many spinning centers as you want. Fidget spinners can be made from a variety of materials including brass, stainless steel, titanium, copper, aluminum or plastic. We have pulled together some awesome tutorials on how-to make a fidget spinner. Follow the instructions or use these ideas as inspiration to create your own design.
