rim polished DV888

(DOGS) #1

After seeing so many people doing this with beautiful results, I figured I would give it a try on my dinged up DV888. It looks soooooo purrrrdy!!

and some pics of it in progress:

tell me what you think!!


It’s rim satinning, not polishing.Many yoyoers would call that a rim satin.

Looks good man!


Looks good. I have to try that to my beat up Dv888.

it’s so worth doing, it looks great! I started with a 320 grit, then 400, then 1000. Then I polished it on a wheel for a good 20 minutes. It takes a while to take the anno off but the end product just looks awesome.


Not necessarily, both involve using sandpaper and/or other abrasives. The only difference between satinning and polishing is what the highest grit you go up to and how polished it looks in the end. If you fully polish a piece of metal you should be able to see yourself in it perfectly, just like a mirror. A satin, on the other hand, will have much more noticeable lines in it. Just like satin cloth, a satin job leaves a shiny look that is still slightly dull.

It looks good, patrickcondon.
