Spinner - Axeman's Nest: "The spinner is completely homemade, using an old mouse. A cleaner solution would be a microcontroller with a custom firmware and a single sensor, but mouse hack is waaay faster! The starting point is this VHS VCR head drum. When You remove the motor, You have a nice flywheel and a 6mm shaft already mounted on two wonderful ball bearings. "
