I’m OK. I had a super late night. I had to drive to SF to do sound for a gig. The event ran late due to a Chinese New Years Day Parade that blocked up traffic in the City. I got out at 3AM and got back home at 4:45Am.
Anyhow, I have a Konkave beaing that doesn’t fit in a few yoyos. I tried to put it in my RecRec Sharp(which is having other issues now).I think that in many yoyos, due to machining, there’s a small margin of tolerances. Similarly, the same issues post likely exist for bearings. Unless Q/C testing occurs on each unit(which is unlikely in the manufacturing stage), every once in a while something is just a tiny bit too far out of spec tolerances. Now,the same bearing, I decided to stick for now in my Aoda Magic Pear Ball(which has a konkave copy), but I have a feeling it’s heading to my Speeder 2 fairly soon.
If the bearing is not fitting in some yoyos and fitting fine in others, it could be some yoyos might be on one end of the tolerance scale(say, smaller end) while the bearing ended up being on the other end(large size) and unfortunately, this combination didn’t mesh too well. Chances are in assembly, if they find a bearing that doesn’t fit right, they probably set it aside and try it in another yoyo or put in a “rejects” pile.
I doubt things like temperature and weather would affect equipment enough during manufacturing from day to day.
PS: I didn’t mean to worry anyone. I was out at the park for an hour and I was throwing. I was alone at my “yoyo meet”. And I was trying to record a tutorial for someone and I decided to trash it because the lighting was unusable and I was too lazy to bring out other lights. So, I’ve gotten at least 2 hours of quality throwing in today. I’m quite pleased!
