Instruction: How to start the NSD Spinner with the Autostart mechanism
A number of models of the NanoSeconD Spinners are equipped with a unique winding mechanism. Very useful if you are not comfortable fiddling around with starter cords, or if you think you will always lose the cords. This explanation tells you exactly how to act to get the Spinner working quickly.
The method for starting the powerballs with the "Autostart" mechanism can best be explained by making the comparison with a toy car. We all know them: pull back the car until it can no longer go back, let go, and it shoots forward. The same principle is applied in the powerballs with the autostart mechanism. Simply wind three times around its own axis, in the direction of the arrow, let go and the powerball will start spinning with just enough speed to continue with the rotating hand/wrist movement.
Characteristics of the NSD Spinner powerball with the Autostart mechanism
- The winding direction indicated by the arrow. For the necessary grip, 2 black rubber strips have been added to the rotor.
- Optional: built-in LED lighting: lights up when the powerball gets up to speed. The harder you spin, the brighter the lights will shine.
- strong>Patented design with soft ergonomic silicone grip without plasticizers, so no sticky fingers after usage!
- A digitally balanced rotor, which remains vibration-free at speeds well above 15,000 RPM.
- High resistance polycarbonate housing, available in a variety of attractive colors. Virtually indestructible!
Starting up the NSD Spinner powerball with the Autostart mechanism
Hold the powerball with both hands on either side of the rotor as shown in the drawing. Position the arrow so that it points away from you.
Keep pushing the rotor forward on the black rubber strips with both thumbs, alternating with every push. This will have to become heavier, as the internal coil spring is being wound up more and more. The total number of revolutions to wind the rotor will be about 3 times. You cannot over-wind, you will feel when it does not want to be wound up any further.
When the rotor is sufficiently wound up, place the powerball carefully in the hand you wish to practice with while holding the rotor with the other hand. Then release the rotor. It will immediately start spinning in the opposite direction of the arrow.
Make circular movements with your wrist / hand to bring the powerball up to speed. You will automatically notice where the 'driving point' of the powerball is located. When rotating, try to keep your arms still in the air, turning only with your wrist. Think of the same movement as when you try to rotate an ice cube in an empty glass.
