Axle problem?


#1

Why is it when i screw my yoyo back together it is really squeaky its on my Dv 888 B grade from BAC


#2

YoYoFactory’s bearing seats are tight, so it is really normal.


#3

It’s a good thing dude! :slight_smile:

I hope your having fun with your new yoyo Brian!


#4

I love It it’s a small bearing, also my axle keeps coming off what should I do?


#5

Uhh…

Screw it together?


#6

I was in the middle of grinding when Half the side of the yoyo came off and my axle always swithches sides when I unscrew


#7

The squeaking is normal. the axle changing sides is also normal. The yoyo coming apart is your fault for not tightening it enough. I’ve done that too though.


#8

if dont want the axle to come off again i do this. i chuck it in a drill with the axle on the side of the yoyo u want it on. then tighten the drill. after that i twist the yoyo half lightly until it stops and it will not come out again.

disclaimer try at ur own risk i am not responsible to any damage. ( dont tighten the drill so much that the axle is flatened


#9

my axle is ok now


#10

putting a tiny bit of loctite on the axle will keep it from screwing.
They’ll have it at the hardware store.

I want everyone to notice something in his link. Notice that the loctite is the blue #242. That is very important. If you get the red then you may not ever get it back out without changing the tensile strength.

So Which one do I get?
