General Information
Material:Wood
Size:Diameter 95mm × Height 150mm
Weight:180g
Production time:●Maximum 3 months
Proper handling:● The dyes are not colorfast, so colors may fade if brought into contact with water. ● The internal mechanisms are very delicate. The top should be handled carefully at all times.
How to use:1. Wind the string 15 or 16 times around the grip-knob on the cover, being sure not to let the string become loose. Set the cover over the Saturn (base). 2. Hold the cover and Saturn together and place it on a flat surface. Ample space is needed since it will spin off to multidirectional areas (small tabletop is NOT recommended). Avoid spinning on delicate surface, it may be prone to scratches. 3. While holding the grip-knob on the top of the cover, pull the string in the horizontal direction. When the string is fully unwound, lift the cover. 4. Saturn will be spinning on its own. 5. Place the cover piece upside-down on the suface, and it will spin too!
