May 8, 2017 at 4:39 am #33141 David WallingParticipant I designed a 3d printed one for the daughter on Sunday. I got one of the dimensions wrong, so it’s too big. I’m having to shrink it some. May 8, 2017 at 5:57 am #33143 KronBjornParticipant Thanks for the comments. It spins alright, but the cheap chinese bearings are not super fast. It helps after a while when the grease redistributes. I think the ones you buy use ceramic bearings. We’ll try that next. It is a nice project to have on the backlog, if you ever have kids around.

You can then get some yoyo oil, or hair clipper oil. If you want. It wont need it tho. Or just buy bones reds off of amazon. 14 bucks for 8. These are just as good as the ceramic i got. May 8, 2017 at 7:55 am #33146 RyanKeymaster Yup, gotta get the grease out if you want it to spin freely. May 8, 2017 at 9:16 am #33152 David WallingParticipant I cleaned my bearings in carb cleaner and then oiled with gun oil.

May 8, 2017 at 12:48 pm #33165 David WallingParticipant What a waste of resources. That tiger’s blood is expensive! You must work for the government.
