The THUG Fidget Spinner

Guru Machine Werks, a collaboration between Tom’s Tool Room and Greg’s Garage, is taking pre-orders for our first fidget spinner. Click here to visit the store. These premium spinners are serial numbered, they feature polished brass bodies, hybrid ceramic bearings and will spin over 4 minutes out of the box.  Our prototypes and serial number 001 are spinning upwards of 6 minutes when laid flat on a table.  Both brass and aluminum buttons are available as are extra bearings (although I doubt you’d ever need to replace one).  The buttons are held together with rare earth magnets and come off without the need for tools. All spinners are shipped with a custom designed CNC machined mahogany and figured maple box.  These spinners are made to the highest of tolerances and no expense has been spared to make certain they are the best product we are capable of producing.
