About

Active duty Navy Deepsea Diver making the highest quality and tightly toleranced spinner possible!

Veteran Made "Trispinner" CNC Machined Billet Fidget Spinner

$2,176

32

The Sithech Customs "Trispinner" is my first design to officially enter the world of fidget and spinner toys.  I personally CNC machine each component from aircraft grade 6061-T6 aluminum and C360 brass.  All Cerakote ceramic based paint is done in house and offers better color variety than anodizing.

The Trispinner comes standard with ceramic bearings and requires no cleaning or lubrication to get the most out of these bearings, less your pocket lint!  The bearings are installed with a light press fit and Loctite compound is used to ensure a stable design and no bearing compression.  

Three brass weights adorn each leg of the Trispinner, and offer a space for initials or small logos.  Purchase the highest reward and you'll receive free engravings.  The center button is optional, and serves as a pivot point for hands free spinning on a flat surface.

The overall dimensions are approximately 3 inches in diameter, the body is 1/8" thick, the buttons and weights stand proud of the body approximately 1/8".  The overall thickness including weights and center buttons is approximately 3/8".

All funds raised during my campaign will be used to purchase aircraft grade aluminum and brass, high quality ceramic bearings and a variety of Cerakote colors based on rewards purchased.  Some money will also go to fixturing to aid in speeding up the manufacturing process to ship out more spinners quickly.

Risks and challenges

I am still serving on active duty and it is my full time "job". Luckily I am on shore duty finally after 16 years of deployments, and I manage to have a little more free time than usual. Having said that, I primarily work in my shop in the evenings and weekends, as long as the wife doesn't get too upset with me! Attention to detail and managing my time is, and always has been, critical to my success.
