Like the round wheels, shaped versions also have multiple holes to vary the design. These are not as common as round and shaped wheels and require more room to use than either of the other types.
Each Spirograph wheel has several holes into which you place a pencil or pen to create a design. While small holes limit instrument choice, they hold the pen or pencil tighter, which can make drawing easier.
With wheels and pens floating around, there are a lot of pieces to keep track of when using a Spirograph set. If you want to take your Spirograph set on the road, look for one with a case that secures with buckles or another latching system.
A wheel must be placed inside a stationary plate or ring for designs to be drawn. Pins are the most stable option, but these are usually found only on older Spirograph sets.
Sets with a metal table or case may come with magnets to hold the plates in place. The latest addition to Spirograph design is Spiro-putty, which feels and acts like sticky tack.
Pieces can be broken off and stuck to the bottom of a plate, holding it in place on the board or table while you draw. Small enough to carry in a backpack or purse, these sets keep everything contained, including the paper and marker.
Between $10 and $20, you’ll find much larger sets with up to 19 wheels plus multiple plates/rings, pens, and guide books. Wheels of all shapes and sizes, as well as multiple plates/rings, make these ultimate sets worth the higher price.
The first Spirograph hit the market in 1966 and was based on mathematical roulette curves. Today’s sets follow those same principles but with some brighter colors and more durable materials.
A Spirograph requires consistent pressure to be applied as the wheel moves around the center of the plate, which can be hard to do at an incline or on an uneven surface. The holes on the wheel are not perfectly straight; rather, they are beveled to funnel the pen or pencil toward the paper.
“Deny's Fisher, a British engineer, invented the first Spirograph and presented it at the 1965 Nuremberg International Toy Fair. “ The sets that didn’t make our list are specialized to a specific audience but might be perfect for you.
It doesn’t include the variety of other sets, but if you prefer quality to quantity, you won’t be disappointed. Spirograph require a certain degree of fine motor skill that children under the age of six are often lacking.
Following age guidelines is the easiest way to make sure a set won’t be too advanced for a young artist. While each set includes only one table or platform on which to draw, if you attach a plate to another flat surface, two to three people can use the Spirograph at one time.

An engine Dino is when a machine is used to measure power output right off the crankshaft rather than to the tires. This inconsistency between recorded power outputs isn't important though, because 99% of the time demos are used for tuning purposes.
Tuners will use a Dino as a tool to measure power output while monitoring engine characteristics through their laptop simultaneously. That way, they know that their tune is safe by watching things like knock sensor levels and air/fuel ratio while checking power output throughout the Dino sheet.
The red lines are the power and torque numbers with a Jet Cold Air Intake, Off-Road Mid-Pipe, custom welded Resonator Deletes and Ford Performance GT500 Axle-Back exhaust, all tied together with a custom tune on 93-octane from Revolution Automotive on their Denote. I personally find it more informational to know the engine speed, so I know where in the RPM band my peak torque is.
Due to the physics equation behind the relation of torque to horsepower, the two curves will always cross at this RPM. While this is a good way to compare power numbers across different vehicles and modifications, there is a lot of unspoken information you can read in the curve of a Dino graph.
There are various factors that go into the shapes of these curves like camshaft timing and overall engine design, so be sure to research your own personal car further in depth before running it on a Dino. It’s important to know what your tuner is handing you after you spend money to get a proper Dino tune to support all your aftermarket modifications.
Studious Learner Pony Friend Afghan Graph by Michelle Annan-Doolittle To properly make this as an afghan you must know how to change colors and can work this in single crochet or afghan stitch.
Finished design can easily be made larger by adding stitches evenly to each side and/or top and bottom. The finished item can also be made larger by adding any border of your choosing.
Finished size varies with yarn weight, hook size and your tension, when choosing colors be sure that you choose all from the same weight class and use an appropriate size hook to match your yarn. Choose similar colors to the graph for a more accurate pony friend.
