Here I demonstrate spinning a Sphere Magnet on its Polar Axis, not "flipping over" on an axis through the magnet's equator.

I'm using a "special coil" for this. Is it making a "magnetic vortex" that is somehow coupling to the field of the magnet and spinning it on the polar axis?

What do you think?

Without seeing the coil itself, can you imagine what it must look like and how I'm driving it?

No, it is NOT a "Rodin Coil", starship coil, or similar, nor is it "bifilar" wound. You can see the two power leads in this video but not the coil itself.
