Is there somewhere I could find any drawings or plans for those throwing tops? The profiles were very similar back in the day and Iím sure there was a good reason.

I just went off the ones I have from my childhood and from my Dad's ... I watched a couple of videos on turning them before starting, then just went for it... I'm still working on re-learning how to make them spin... I can spin one of my old ones, but the new ones I think are too light in the tip... gonna fix that this next week.
