Delrin yoyo with metal rims.


#1

Is it possible, and what do you think?


#2

one should assume…


(Halbach) #3

it is possible but due to patents, without special permission from YYJ, only YYJ could mass-produce one.


(DOGS) #4

Well, the patent only applies to yoyos with rims made out of metal. You could add metal rings inside the rim a la Protostar and be perfectly fine.

I’d buy one.


#5

Yeah maybe it could be a community project like the code 1!


(Halbach) #6

I thought that’s what he was asking about was outer rims.

Send an email to yoyojam. It cant hurt…


#8

The New Breed as well as the Atmosphere are Celcon with metal rims.

Celcon and Delrin are basically the same plastic, but delrin is just a little denser and can be machined.


(WildCat23) #9

^^ and celcon is injection molded.


#10

Make it oversized and I’d be highly interested in obtaining one.

Is delrin available in different colors? I like my Crucial Half & Half in white, but with something not in the dairy-theme, color selection might be good for mass market appeal. I think colors with contrasting/highlighting weight rings would be cool!


#11

Delrin/celcon can be in any opaque color


#12

On a blank store other than yoyoexpert I believe they do have different colors. I think they dye it.


#13

Since celcon is also a better plastic you could make the plastic cover on the metal rims out of that.


(WildCat23) #14

White and black. You can dye white to whichever color you choose.


#15

if you put together delrin yoyo with metal rims, would that make the delrin useless? because delrin can cure it self when dinged, right?


#16

I’ve never seen that happen.


#17

yeah I have a delrin and it doesnt do that. But I wish it did!


#18

Says who?

No. Delrin isn’t a living organism capable of healing over time. Once it loses mass…it’s gone forever.


#19

I thought that generally celcon was better :-, but i guess not. And anyway i now realize it would be better to make the plastic of the rims out of delrin. Mainly because it apparently grinds good ( I wouldn’t know I haven’t really gotten into that).

I addressed the outer rims and then moved to another option.

Y’know, talking.
