Show some plastic yoyos you made

(Mk1 Yoyos) #1

Meet the PCLoadLetter v1:

It didn’t turn out great. Slicer settings were off, it was wobbly, and about 20% under weight. I have a few more tries in the pipeline, I really want to get it working with side effects!

Delrin and Celcon are brand names of acetal. Referring to all acetal as either Delrin or Celcon is a bit like how some people call any tablet an iPad.

I thought POM was the more generic term.

Maybe what I’ve used isn’t POM. :man_shrugging:

Acetal is POM (Polyoxymethylene). Delrin is what Dupont calls there POM. Definitely all the same like you said.

I’m pretty sure POM is the correct generic term!

Well the plastics engineering place I got it from calls it acetal. I think they would know the correct name.

They’re synonyms, but POM is the widely known generic name. I’d never actually seen someone type “acetal” here when referring to it before today!

POM is a widely used generic term, not necessarily the ‘correct’ term. Acetal is fine too.

The professional plastics company says acetal, so I say acetal.
