Custom made Spinworthy Harbingers $50-$60 Shipped

(Spinworthy Glen) #1

Hi people,

If you are interested, I can make a Harbinger for you in a variety of woods of your choice (scroll down for options). The Harbinger is a fixed axle wooden yoyo that is well worth it if you are a fixed axle lover. It’s a great perfomer with an excellent play feel.

Below is an example to give you an idea of the shape.

Here are your wood options:

Light weights (from left to right)

  • Rock maple 50-52g
  • Tasmanian oak 50g
  • Australian blackwood 40-42g
  • Walnut 44g.

Medium weights (from top to bottom)

  • Zebrawood 56g
  • White oak 55-58g
  • Merbau 58-62g
  • Kapur 58g.

Heavy weights (from top to bottom)

With any of these woods expect the weight to be between 66-72g.

  • Jarrah
  • spotted gum
  • purpleheart
  • wenge.

All Harbingers are fitted with a 7mm axle of the same wood as the body. This give each a unique play feel, but you can specify what species you would like the axle to be if you prefer.

All ship in a jute bag with a Spinworthy sticker.

They are $50 shipped to the the US or Canada.

Purpleheart, zebrawood, and wenge are $60 shipped to the US or Canada.

You will not be disappointed!

How much would I pay for in australia.

(Spinworthy Glen) #9

Less because shipping is much cheaper.


So… transaxles? I haven’t ventured past bearings…

(Spinworthy Glen) #11

Not transaxles. They are fixed axles.


How do fixed axles work?


So… no moving parts inside…?

(Spinworthy Glen) #14

No moving parts, just a wooden axle.

It works a lot better than it sounds.


Really chill and a nice break from modern yoyos


If I get a fixed axle, I’ll ask you first :wink:

Where are you located, in the states? I have been looking for somebody who can make yo-yos to make one out of Burl for me, I am pretty handy myself, I make slingshots and fixed blade knives, and really want a maple Burl Yoyo to go with one of my matching sets I made for myself. If somebody was to ship you some wood they wanted a yo-yo made out of would you be willing to work on it?

(Quentin Chapman ) #18

Never mind I see you are from Australia, I doubt this would be possible

(Spinworthy Glen) #19

If you can get the wood to me, I can do it.
