  Turning a Finger Spinning Top with Chatter
The harder and denser the wood the cleaner the chatter.
Turn the bottom toward the tailstock because the tip the top spins on is more important than the tip of the stem, oriented this way allows free access to form the tip to a good point.
The first time the top drops on a hard floor the sharp point will break or deform and the top will not spin well anymore.

  Constructable spinning top maze - Patent 5971830
A constructable spinning top maze kit having a base upon which rail pieces may be removably mounted to form a maze through which the spinning top may travel when launched from a launcher.
The top (101) launched from the launcher (140) is shown having traversed enough of the base (108) to topple two of the five pins (102) which have been placed on the track (100).
The dimensions of the pin (800) are not critical, except that the top (810) of the pin (800) should have a height approximately the same as the height of the mass (620) of the top (600).

 Precession of Top
The spinning top many of us know is launched from about waist level to the floor by snapping your wrist as you release it, while maintaining a grip on the cord wound around its body.
This rotation axis is a symmetry axis of the top, known as a principal axis.
Because it's unable to exert a torque on the ground, the top can't exchange angular momentum with the earth.

  Precession of Top   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A rapidly spinning top will precess in a direction determined by the torque exerted by its weight.
The angular momentum of the spinning top is given by its moment of inertia times its spin speed but this exercise requires an understanding of it's vector nature.
A torque is exerted about an axis through the top's supporting point by the weight of the top acting on its center of mass with a lever arm with respect to that support point.

 History Of The Top by Valerie Oliver, Copyright Spintastics Skill Toys, Inc., 2002
Top spinning was accepted for both sexes in classical Greece (figures 9 and 22), as shown on the pottery carvings and paintings.
The throwing top, in general, is pear shaped, usually with some sort of point at the narrow end and which is wound by a cord and thrown to unwind the cord from the top, causing the top to spin.
Spinning within a target, removing objects within a target, out spinning other tops and knocking other tops out of a target by a spinning top were common throwing top games.

 Tippe Top Article
The top is a tippe top, a perverse little device which, when spinning, refuses to sit on its rounded end, but flips over and rotates on its stem.
When the top is set spinning the low centre of mass causes the centre to be centrifugally displaced from the spin axis (Z), which remains perpendicular to the surface on which the top is spinning.
If the initial spin velocity imparted to the top when it is set in motion is sufficiently high, nutation and oscillations of the tippe top's motion eventually result in the edge of the stem making contact with the surface and the top then rising to the inverted position.

 Longest Spinning Top gets Nickel-Plated Treatment
The Quark Top is a remarkable spinning top that will spin for over a quarter of an hour powered by a single twist of fingers about 10 times as long as a conventional top.
With conventional tops typically spinning for just one or two minutes, the Quark top is the highest performance spinning top in the world, according to inventor Jim Lewis.
In addition to the normal use of a spinning top as a toy and high-tech conversation piece, the Quark top can be used as a timer for business meetings, a decision-maker, and to play one of several games described in its instructions.

This magnetic field coupled with the top's magnet forms a torque to overcome the friction and to continue and to increase the spinning of the top.
The transistor is turned on and off for a very short time, depending on when the top has rotated its magnetic field past the center of the coil, the polarity of the induced voltage and the time constant of the coil circuitry.
The top spins freely without the interaction of magnetic field until it rotates into the coil again.

 The Tippe Top
This is a small spinning top which has a low center of gravity.
When the top is set spinning the low center of mass causes the center to be centrifugally displaced from the spin axis (Z), which remains perpendicular to the surface on which the top is spinning.
During the inversion the center of mass of the top is raised and its rotational kinetic energy is reduced, providing the potential energy to raise the center of mass.

 Sandstrum's Spinning Top Classification
As I've searched the Internet for fellow top collectors, I've found that most collectors attempt to classify their tops, and most often they classify their tops by the way tops are launched, e.g.
Since the commonality of the Western and Eastern peg tops is that they are wrapped in string and thrown, I chose the term "tossed top", thus a tossed top is a top that is wrapped with a string and thrown.
I believe the whip top is universally agreed upon to be a top launched by a whip.

 Levitating Top at Hammacher Schlemmer
Developed by a pair of physicists, this precisely weighted and balanced top will spin and float in mid-air, without electricity or strings to support it.
Although the theorem remains true as long as there is no external force to prevent the magnets from attracting each other, the precise gyroscopic spinning of the top provides just enough fo rce to keep the top floating about 2 1/2" from the base without falling over.
Spinning the top above the base sets the levitation phenomenon in motion, and the top remains in the air anywhere from two minutes up to four minutes with practice.
