Does anyone (on this EARTH!...lol! ) have a pic of of the wooden insert, brass rivet axle Duncraft Proyo yoyo? - showing without pogs and insert/ axle clearly?. Thank You

Yeah, maybe @YOHANS can shed some light on those? They’re the only ones I have and they’re sealed in that bag, but they match up to the brass ones. All the yoyos I’ve owned over the years had the brass ones installed.

Not sure if you got your picture fix from the other responses, but here are the ones I have. They’re Duracraft Proyos, not Duncraft. Brass axles on the right, wood on the left, and in the middle is a modified wood axle: I put non-gel super glue on the outside hexagon part (not the circular part on the sides) to increase their longevity because the wood axles are so fragile.

Thanks, for sure. Good stuff.

If you have one of those you’d be willing to part with let me know anytime - jtn26507@gmail.com. Also thinks again for the pics and knowledge :call_me_hand:- John

Sorry, man. Honestly, they’re priceless to me, so I’m afraid you wouldn’t be able to buy one. Even though it’s a pain (wooden axles that need sticky modification and eventually break anyway, and opening the yoyo up is a chore compared to others), it’s hands down my favorite yoyo of all time. Incredibly smooth. Haven’t found a longer fixed axle spin. If you see one out there for a decent price, I suggest buying it immediately.

Right on👍

How do you find this works? Does it help keep them from cracking?

Yeah, it just seeps into the pores of the wood and then dries, making it stronger and increasing its longevity by delaying it’s inevitable cracking. It doesn’t work 100% of the time (some axles are very soft and will crack no matter what), but oftentimes it works and it’s great. I usually do one coat and another after the first dries.
