I have been meaning to put a bigger top body on this hardware I bought from Penn State. They had a design for a small diameter top that was very hard to get started and it would not run long when it did. I tool some scraps from the burn barrel and fitted them together, tapped a 10-32 hole in the center and turned this top. it runs for a whole minute now. The nice thing about the hardware is that when you pull the string and let it go, it winds back up and then you let it go to spin. I was going to cut a spiral in it but I’ll save that for the next one.
Gift for Marcello’s son!
