^^awesome stuff guys thanks for the responses and yes bagging and boarding seems like a better obvious way to protect books on comic spinner racks.

Thought I'd post a pic of my spinner rack. It's a Dell, I would prefer a Marvel one but it is still pretty nice - from the 50's!

Post yours!

 

Wondering what the value of this rack is. 50's Dell, in VG+ condition

 

Never seen one like yours before. Is great!

Anything of significant value goes in a toploader or is in a cgc slab. My spinner holds slabs.

the older ones have rather large pockets that will hold slabs. Mine is a 70's spinner and I had to manipulate the pockets a little ( IE bend them ) to hold slabs but they now do.

Not sure if anyone has ever posted a video of a spinner rack actually...y'know...spinning.

 

So here's mine, loaded with a whole bunch of childhood favorites, doing exactly what it was designed to do...

 

 

 

love the video, your spinner spins so nicely!

Mine needs some work to improve the spin.

Rarely do I post, but I will never pass up the chance to share my baby; a local craigslist find, $50.00! Replaced the hardware, gave it a good power washing, good as new!

I'd LOVE it, if it wasn't like a 6 hour drive away.

That's what a welder, a piece of pipe, some steel plate & spray paint is for...

That's all well and good but I'd really like it to be all original.

Different strokes...

if its cheap enough because of the missing bases, the un-original-ness or incompleteness is something I can live with.

As long as it has that classic "squeeeek" when it spins, it's all good! (thumbs u

Make sure you get the right sized tube/pipe to weld onto the plate & that wonderful metal-on-metal squeal will be there. (thumbs u

Just picked this up today for a couple bucks from a guy that didn't want it anymore. Doesn't fit bagged & boarded books or slabs, but it's a good 1st spinner.

But it's nice to have a place to throw some dollar bin books as a conversation piece.

Looks great! Always liked the Richie, Spidey, Archie, Supes top.

And no welding required! :D

It reminds me of going into the Woolworth before drum lessons when I was like 6 or 7 or even 10 & grabbing a couple comics to read.
