The Sipsey precision spinning top is another pocket-sized powerhouse from Scovie Precision Turning. This top will spin for over 10 minutes on a smooth, hard surface. You have your choice of either stainless steel or brass (or get both as a set!), which are identical in size. The Sipsey top is as a small as Scovie’s previous line, the Washburn top, but with a fresh new design and a lower center of gravity that allows for an even longer spin time.
This is a take-it-with-you kind of top. It is small enough to keep in your pocket, your book bag, or your glove compartment for whenever a spinning opportunity arises.
This is a keep-it-forever kind of top. It is made to last, with high-quality materials and produced on a precision lathe. The spinning tip is made from one of the hardest types of stainless steel after heat treating.
