In the "old days" we used to do something simpler, which has probably
been described here at one time or another. A needle or other
sharp-pointed axle was mounted on top of the coil, pointing up. A "Z"
shaped spinner was made, with a prick in the center piece upon which the
thing could be balanced on the spindle. Produces a similar effect and
makes a good stunt to show people.
