A new spinner and base were made. Instead of a keyed post and keyed spinner the outside of the spinner and the shroud of the base act as the keyed components. The slot in the bottom of the spinner should only allow the spinner to rock in one direction but not wobble to the sides. The raised shroud should keep the rocking limited to when the compass is pointed north. This design is the first one meant to differentiate between north and south.
