I have been noticing a LOT of yoyos are not matching their specs, specifically in regards to weights, so I suspect other issues are at play as well. I’m planning to buy an inexpensive set of calipers to measure yoyos.
For getting width, that’s not a big deal. I would ASSUME that is “width of yoyo WITH bearing in place”. Then I could measure each half(or one half and multiple by two), then subtract that from total width to get the gap.
I don’t want to spend a lot on a caliper. I figure a basic one at Office Depot or Home Depot or Lowes would get the job done. Getting an “inside caliper” is proving to be more expensive than I want to spend. I have a low cost 300 gram scale that goes to hundreths, and for my purposes, that’s sufficient.
Plus, I’ve been getting modified yoyos and I want to measure their new dimensions for proper cataloging into my database.
