any way to fix a throw with a striped axle?


#2

It has to be retapped, you can drill a new hole into it that is bigger. Requires a thicker axle afterward, and you probably have to know what you’re doing


#3

Can i like, send it to a manufacturer? its a pricy one…


#4

Idk about the manufacturer, but Landon balk of 3yo3 can retap axle holes


#5

nice sig joke! and i understand binary!


#6

How long have you had the throw? I suggest contacting who you purchased the yoyo from if you believe it was not your fault the yoyo was stripped. Could try the manufacturer as well.


#7

Wow, a striped axle?


#8

or at least the hole where it goes.

List of Trustworthy Modders

A couple of people on that list do that type of work.


#10

Haha thanks.

Yeah, forgot about that list.


#11

depends if the threads are stopped or if it’s just the axle. Cause if it’s an axle one then you can just buy a new axle.


#12

i need to recap some axle holes… can anyone do it?

PLEASE!!!

i msged landon balk awhile ago but never got a reply…


#13

Landon Balk is really good. You did a good job with contacting him. If you texted instead of emailed him, try emailing. He’s usually pretty good at getting to those.

I, myself, can not do it, sorry. But, I am trying to help, so good luck.

yoyo spirit should be able to help also if you give scooter mcgavin pm he also might help


#15

I can tap threads, but Scooter is our resident genius for mods, he will probably be a lot more useful than I will


#16

#17

Yeah, you need to get fixed.


#18

Seems like everyone’s forgotten about me…


#19
