satining


#1

i recently found a yoyo that i lost and it was kinda scrached up
so i was thinking i can satin it
it is a raw yoyo and i only have 150 grit sand paper
so if i satin it will it be better for grinding and will it hide the scratches?


#2

Not with 150 grit sandpaper. Well, most likely not. It should help hide the scratches though.


#3

You can use150 grit but it is a little too coarse. It will leave the yo-yo rough to the touch. I suggest using no lower than 220 grit.


#4

could i sand it lightly to hide scratches?


#5

You could, but the 150 grit is going to leave a rough scratched up finish.

yeah. some hardware stores sell a pack of all kind of sand papers or u could ask for a sample. i work my way up thru the grits for 220 all the way up to 440 and polish it
