Gyro Ball

Major accomplishment today: finally got my Dyna-Flex gyro ball going and going and going!!! I was so happy, it's like that scene out of "Castaway" when Tom Hanks cries out with pride "I have made FIRE!"

Getting the wheel spinning isn't the toughest part (especially if you use the string to jump start it), but keeping it from stopping is a major battle, having to figure out how to up the revs on the gyro takes a lot of patience & practice! I'd say I've been fighting this thing for a total of an hour, spanning the past few evenings after work, and tossing the dumb ball into my Fuf chair out of frustration!

So now the challenging part is learning how to start it WITHOUT the string...
