Fidget spinners are an addictive toy, and this instructable will show you how to design and make your own custom laser cut fidget.
You will only need a 608 bearing which can be purchased very cheaply online.
If you want to add weight to your spinner 12mm steel ball bearings do the job very nicely.
To design the spinner I use PTC But there are other software like fusion 360 that are free to use.
You will also need 3mm acrylic, glue and access to a laser cutter.
