Broken axle stuck in one half


(Former National 4A Champion) #1

So I was yoyoing, and I heard the yoyo unscrewing, so I stopped to screw it back in. As I screwed it in, I guess I twisted the axle in half. It was offstring, so I guess it was near the breaking point. I got one of the axle halves out, but the other is pretty deep in. Any idea how to get it out?

We have had succes fixing this issue. Just drill a hole in the axle with a drill press, a drill may work but may be more difficult to center on such a small piece. Once you have the hole it is usually easy to get it out with a reverse drill bit or even a torx bit (the star looking things).

I would recommend trying that or contacting the retailer you purchased it from. If you bought it from us (guessing you may not have ;)) then we would fix it for free.

Good Luck!

Thanks. I’ll have to find someone with a drill press.

I actually got the yoyo from my sponsor, so I could get another one, but I don’t want to needlessly throw away a yoyo, and I probably couldn’t get it before I leave for nats anyway.
