Thank you for purchasing Mezmoglobe!
Here you will find some very useful information and instructions.
What's included in the package?
Start with a fast spin
Each MEZMOGLOBE is tested and ready to use, although it may need a couple of spins to turn/work in the bearing and achieve the perfectly smooth rotation. First of all - start with a fast spin! We recommend to spin it clockwise and counterclockwise for a couple of times at a very fast pace and your MEZMOGLOBE will be good to go.
How long should MEZMOGLOBE spin?
Straight out of the box MEZMOGLOBE should spin from 15-40 seconds with a single rotation and there is a very specific reason for it described below. However if you want longer spinning times, you are welcome to check out our instruction video "How to clean the MEZMOGLOBE bearing?" below.
Before you clean the bearing we would really suggest reading our story and experience behind the creation process of Mezmoglobe and choosing the right bearings for it.
WHY THE MEZMOGLOBE BEARINGS SPINS ONLY 15-40 SECONDS OUT OF THE BOX AND NOT LONGER?
Bearing is a very specific part and at the beginning we had to make a choice between using a silent spinning bearing or a longer spinning one. Dry bearing spins longer but usually it is louder, oiled bearing is silent but spins less. Also there are a few other issues with dry bearings which makes them not very suitable for using in bulk. Bearings are precisely manufactured parts but there are still slight shifts in tolerances which makes the noise level of each unit very different and unpredictable. The slight dose of oil simply puts most of the noise away. Inside the Mezmoglobe is a slightly oiled bearing which prevents longer spin times. As designers of the original product we chose to go with the silent version as the main goal for the Mezmoglobe is the visual effect and we found it much more effective with the silent rotation.
We never wanted to create another long spinning fidget spinner but we completely understand that for some the noise will not be an issue and they just want the object that spins as long as possible. Therefore we made the bearing easily accessible and interchangeable so everyone could clean it or experiment with different types of bearings (like ceramic, stainless, etc.). When designing the Mezmoglobe we spent so much time experimenting with all kinds of bearings as we needed to find some middle ground- a reasonable choice that would be suitable for bulk manufacturing and affordable price range. The highest quality is our priority! Even though we have found a very nice bearing option we still need to assemble and check every unit by our hands prior shipping it to our clients to ensure you get the best out of Mezmoglobes.
We hope you found this interesting and got a bit more insight in the process of creating the Mezmoglobe. We are really passionate about designing all kinds of desk toys but there are always a hidden challenges especially when it comes to bulk manufacturing.
1. How to access and remove the MEZMOGLOBE bearing?
If you ever need to clean, oil or change the bearing, this video will show you how to properly access, remove and place back the bearing.
This is a video from our previous product, so don't get confused. The bearing installation process is similar for both desk toys, so it will work for Mezmoglobe as well. Very soon the information will be updated and customized for Mezmoglobe.
2. How to clean the MEZMOGLOBE bearing?
MEZMOGLOBE bearing comes with a slight dose of protective oil inside. The oil makes the bearing super silent, but, it also prevents it from a super long rotation time. If you want to reach record spin times you can clean the bearing and achieve up to 3 minutes of rotation from a single spin. But keep in mind that dry bearing is always a bit louder than oiled one.

This video will show you how to properly clean the bearing
IMPORTANT!!! The most important thing to keep in mind for proper cleaning result is to blow the air and rotate the bearing intensively while rinsing! If this step is missed the bearing will dry unevenly and will create a poor spinning result. We would suggest doing the whole rinsing process at least three times to make sure no oil particles are left in the bearing!!!
