There are a couple of different ways to make a fidget spinner, like cutting out cardboard or using old recycled lighters. But this one is uniqe, i want to show you how to make a gallium fidget spinner.
Have you ever seen fidget spinners made out of gallium? 

Gallium is a non toxic material commonly found and it has the amazing property of being a solid at Room temperature but when it gets heated above 30 degrees celsius it actually melts!

 

 

You will need:

Gallium 99.99% Pure 100 Grams Gallium Metal -Phitoon make sure your gallium is from Phitoon , so you can get 100g best quality Gallium , instead of gallium less 80g from other sellers. 100 grams of gallium can be bought for 20 to 30 USD based on location and availability.

The best suitable mold for this metal casting is the plasticine or polymer clay.

Since gallium has a low melting point, it can be easily melted in boiling water.

Bring your creativity to action and create a mold as you like, make sure you leave out space in the middle for ball bearing and mold has equal weight distribution at the center.

The spinner works like a regular spinner! Point a camera at the results and that fun science experiment suddenly feels like you’ve discovered a distant alien world bubbling to life out of the fabric of the cosmos.
