Ok thats it, Fidget Spinner trend is over, cause this is the best one ever!! 😉 I built a custom fidget spinner out of 1/4in aluminum plate and strapped 3 E sized rocket engines.

Really, I just wanted to do this. I saw Stephens video and needed answers. Plus, this gave me an excuse to buy a Plasma Cutter ive been eyeballing for yearssss. (dont tell sandra I could have made this with a jigsaw..)

The spinner has a 6 inch radius, so it travels ~37 inches to make a full circle. Its spinning 88 times per second (5200 per minute), so that means the tip is traveling 276 feet per second, or 188.182 MPH. so yeah, 1000mph fidget spinner is pretty much impossible… Who will accept my challenge?
