Personally I've always thought of it as, "I will try and succeed in stopping him," or "going to try and (will) stop him."
Dropping the "will" possibly out of laziness has become the norm.
I know I'm a gravedigger with this post but I thought I should add that the "around," in my opinion, is an preposition. The OP has incorrectly ended his phrase with an preposition and should simply remove it.
1) "The machine that is spinning."2) "The spinning machine."
It is quite easy to swap the order in this case. If "around" is to be used, it needs an object so one needs to ask:
"Around what is the machine spinning?" and not "What is the machine spinning around?"
