Is the Speedaholic Polycarbonate?


#1

What material is it?


#2

Are the spacers glued in or something?

Because I can’t get the spacers out.


#3

They’re press fit, like YYJ’s Solid Spin or metal rims or the Rally’s hubs.


#4

It’s plastic for sure just not certain of the specific flavor of plastic and guessing they’re either glued, prefer fit, or molded in. I don’t own one but looking over the things I’ve seen this is the better guess I have.


#5

Also the yoyo is in fact polycarb.


#6

what do you need to get the spacers out for???


#7

To dye it

I need to get the spacers out

Stick it in the fridge/freezer… Then leave it for like 2 hours. Then try and pull them.


#9

Ok, I’ll give it a try :slight_smile:

Alright, let me know if it works! The idea behind it is that the coldness will contract the rings just enough to come loose.


#11

Should I just stick the end of the axle into the spacer and wiggle it?


(kclejeune) #12

Yes!


#13

I’ve removed spacers with the string bearing removal trick.


#14

ah, ok then, sounds cool.


#15

I dyed one half of the yoyo so far.

I’m finishing it tomorrow.


#16

Cannot wait to see what your results are.


#17

The results are… phenomenal.

I still need pics though.


#18

hehe then i wait patiently (dang it NOW NOW NOW) ok maybe not so much with the patience…
