Money spinners

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of making spinner blades out of

coins , 1p , 2 p , 5 p , 10 p etc.....

I think i could make a good shape of

blades by using a rolling mill

Does anyone know much about rolling mills ? ( I Dont )

As far as i know they work like old washing mangles

I just thought coins would be a very hard spinning blade

also in a wide variety of colours & sizes

I am always looking for new ways to make

my spinners

i think this could be a good idea

Any help , hints , tips

would be very welcome

Thank you All

cannibal is it the novelty factor that appeals?

 

I am failing to see why coins would be a good choice of material?

It is very hard wearing , Look at the change in your pocket , some of it may be 20 , 30 years old ,

Also it comes in many colours ,it can also be super cleaned , or left dull , i dont think

water would effect it too much , Yes it would be a good novelty

Have you ever saw Money spinner blades Before ?

Cheers

I think it would be great fun for someone who enjoys the making of lures as much as using them and I'd love to hear how you get on with the project.

 

I've seen lures made from dinner spoons which seems pretty unlikely but some of them were very effective so why not coins?

Canni,

 

In the war years it was hard if not impossible to get hold of copper. To make copper spinners we used to lay a penny on the railroad tracks. Usually only took one train but a long thin spinner would take two trains.

 

Ohh, and when squished you couldn't tell it was a coin (if memory serves me right(?)
