"Dear Chris

When I was a small boy we used to play the game with my grandmother

I found it to be really exciting. A few weeks back a song reminded me of those times. ( teddy bears picnic ) and I wondered what ever became of her put n take. Searched Amazon and there you were.

What a beautifully piece of crafted engineering you have created.

Many thanks indeed.

All the best"

"Hi Chris,

I ordered one of your Bronze flat top 1.5” diameter spin tops, don’t normally leave reviews for anything but for something so small it’s amazing. Incredible satisfying and calming especially when work gets stressful - 

Your craftsmanship’s fantastic and I love the weight and the gnarling on the outer edge, 

Keep up the amazing work,"

Sam

"I just want to 'personally' thank You for the lovely Bomber Begleri I received today.

They really are great pieces of machining and the packaging is great, as well - with all the extra cords, the sticker, the pouch, etc.

The Begleri definitely weren't my last purchase from Butterfield Machine (I am especially dallying over some of Your gorgeous tops)!

Keep up the good work!

With the very best regards"

"Just got my buffalo flattop today and I am super impressed. My first spin time was 11:20.5! This thing is awesome thanks again!"

David

"Hey Chris, 

I just wanted to take a minute and let you know how great the products were that I received this week. The craftsmanship is amazing, the coins are beautiful, and the spin time is incredible. I didn't have a remote interest in a top of any sort until seeing the Copper Buffalo Nickel. My longest spin has been 12:48! I'm very glad I decided to place an order, though. Everyone I've shown has really marveled at the engineering and good looks of the two pieces. I'm looking forward to hanging on these for a long while, and maybe ordering more in the future as gifts. Do you have any plans on creating a hand spinner or anything like the Torq bar? I'll keep an eye out for other interesting pieces you make.  

Thanks again, I really appreciate it."

"Chris did a fabulous job with my custom order! The tops and begleri are beautiful, and are beautifully-packaged. Chris answered all of my questions, updated me frequently during the process, produced my items in a timely fashion (earlier than I had expected!), and packed them securely. Thank you, Chris, for making every aspect of this purchase a positive experience. :D"

Dionna

"My flattop just arrived - astonishingly fine top! Multi-minute spins every time! Excellent work, Chris!"

Jim

"Received my tops today...great quality! I only wish I had ordered more!"

Chris

"I think I really need to compliment you on how well this thing spin's. After I finally got past the fury I had towards myself for denting it. I've started attempting to spin this little thing. It's not easy for me. But I did manage a really ugly, slow, wobbly spin that would have killed most of my tops. And it just kept going for more than 2 minutes. If I can ever get the hang of spinning it. It just might be my best top."

Carl

"Excellent EDC begleri to pack around."

Malcolm

"My top and beads arrived in the mail today. I am thrilled with the quality and workmanship of both pieces! I think I may actually use the beads more than the top to keep my hands busy! Adding the polishing cloth and cleaning paste was an unexpected addition, and the little carrying bags are wonderful. Thanks for the unique products!"

"I have been looking for a flat top with a coin that I like that wasn't 90$ or more. This one is great. Eighty five year old buffalo nickel is very cool. Beautiful workmanship. Great spinner. If you want to add a flat top to your collection, this one is very nice."

Mark

"What a beautiful top, with nice packaging, too! Fulfillment was so quick that you put other KS campaigns to shame.

My kids are helping me with my spin technique -- they learned to spin for a Lego game a few years ago. ;) Such fun!"

"Hi Chris,

I gave my copper Indian nickel top to my dad for Christmas, and he absolutely loved it. Spun over 10 minutes on his first try!

Thank you so much for a lovely product."

"Hi Chris,

I can't thank you enough. I am so happy with the Gyro and your work.
If I was a high school principal I would purchase this for any science or math teacher that requested one.
You were very kind to me, I greatly appreciate it.
You're a nice person.
All the best to you,"
