Was stupid and put a blowdryer on my DM2

So watdo, now the metal caps fall off too easily, i basically have a shell of a yoyo, any way i can repair it


#2

don’t think so man, you should probably contact Andre about this.


(Vincent-) #3

Nah, i wouldnt do that, it was my own bad that i was trying to harden the sili faster


#4

Gorilla Glue at the joints might do the trick if it goes together. Could also try putting it in the freezer for awhile with the metal together.


#5

Crazy glue would work a bit better since it doesn’t expand when the it dries. Also, thanks for the tip! I just learned how to take the rings off my DMII easily!


#6

Are you talking about the metalized caps or the aluminum rings?


(Vincent-) #7

The rings


#8

it’s not stupid…it’s learnin’ :slight_smile:

and agree’d - you can put some adhesive on the rims/plastic to join them back together. i would go w/ any adhesive made for metal/plastic - they have specialty adhesives out there that will do just that.

Care to post pictures of the yoyo, the various loose parts and perhaps the hair dryer?

I mean, everyone knows you air dry a plastic yoyo!

Sorry, I haven’t used a hair dryer in over 10 years. We aim those at our skulls, and it gets hot enough to melt polycarbonate? I’d expect a heat gun but not a hair dryer.

So, note to all: Paper towels!!
