Woodfone 3-Way Metal Spinner - Deal on AliExpress ✈

This beautiful Woodfone 3-Way Metal Spinner, which I like to call the "Sphinx UFO Spinner", is available on the AliExpress app for $11.43 + international shipping.

I personally bought a few of those, and they are just gorgeous.
The brass/copper body has a good heft, and the bearing is small - type 688 ZZ, I believe.
Among the ones I got, the spin time varies anywhere between 3m:20s to 5m:48s.
I know it's a replica of the original CKF Pepyakka v2.0 spinner, but it's quite good.

Check out some customizations I made...


The original 27mm button caps are made from thin Aluminum, which is fine, but I decided to machine a better cap. Here's the result...took me quite a while to make it:

Then I thought "Wouldn't it be nice if there were gem stones in those UFO window holes"...
