A year or two ago I ran across the second spinner and it is, indeed, by Taichiro Hasegawa. It can be made as a two-piece “Lotus Spinner,” which is made to spin by blowing down on it from above, or you can add a third piece, a sort of handle, which you can then spin by hand.
I don’t remember where I found it, but the diagrams I have are professionally done and are credited to Joel Stern and Bennett Arnstein with help from John Andrisan.
