Tumbler from a 10 Pfennig piece
carbon handle, rubber rings, metal tip
approx. 22 x 62 mm
(price per piece)
A tumbler is a spinning top with a very high centre of gravity.
This makes it very difficult for it to stand up while spinning.
While the gyro body rotates more or less on the spot,
the ends of the gyro axis describe a circular path.
A very nice, dancing effect.
The difficulty is that the spinning top has to turn very fast.
Hold the spinning top body with thumb and index finger of one hand and turn the spinning top with the other hand by a snipping motion.
Most tumblers have different spinning tops at the ends of the axis.
Start with the gyro on the blunter tip.
With some practice you will also be able to turn the wobbler at a flat angle on the pointed side.
