So damn good. Now I wanna polish my raw monster :joy:

About 45 minutes from start to finish. Won’t take deep scratches or grooves out… you would have to sand for that.

An attempt was made.

This reminds me I need to polish my Summit and MK3…

It looks like you are polishing the yoyo with a drill polishing wheel? Have you tried chucking the yoyo on an extra long M4 x 0.7mm screw with nuts on it? (Basically an extra long yoyo axle with hex nuts on the end)

I found that spinning the yoyo on the drill (and holding polishing compound against it) rather than the polishing wheel against the yoyo, I could get mirror finishes done very quickly (maybe 10 minutes per half).

Yeah, it sounds like that would be easier. I’ve only done about 8-10 of my yoyos with the drill and Dremel. I’ve got various yoyos with different sized axles, and never really got around to buying extra axels to do that.

Looks like you do a stunning job without the axles!

I use a similar setup as yours when I do side effect yoyos since you can’t chuck them.
