KEEPS ON GOING
In Japan, koma-asobi (top spinning) is a traditional
game loved over four centuries. Children play with
tops during the New Year's holiday, and some claim
they bring good luck.
The shape of the traditional spinning top has
evolved over the years, but the core physical
principles of play have not. With a playful spirit,
and dedication to excellence, NSK Micro Precision
endeavoured to further evolve the spinning top,
ultimately arriving at a completely game-changing
The new top features the high precision bearings
favoured by Yo-yo world champions, and the
central shaft doesn't rotate. This allows the top
to spin for about 8 minutes on most surfaces, far
longer than your average top (typically 2-3 minutes
on unsmooth surfaces).
This new toy follows NSK Micro Precision's hit
fidget spinner, the Saturn Spinner, which sold out
on the first day. The company hopes that these toys
will spark the interest of children and adults alike in
the mysteries of science and technology.

For over 40 years, tens of thousands of
commercial and leisure vessels - from
yachts to supertankers - have been
equipped with Vesconite bushings.
The marine industry has come to value
this engineered polymer with unique
properties that make it the recommended
choice for rudder bearings.
Reasons to choose Vesconite rudder

stable in water and is not affected by
• High load capacity - It has a design
load of 30MPa (4,250psi).
• Proven against bronze, elastomers,
laminated materials and rubber.
• Internally lubricated - Vesconite
does not require lubrication, and
can operate without greasing.
This ensures compliance with
environmental regulations on oil
contamination and the protection of
oceans and other bodies of water.
• Reduces shaft wear - No metalon
metal wear and Vesconite’s low
friction results in longer-lasting shafts.
