weight rings on my Black Knight


#1

How can I Get my weight rings off my black knight.


#2

You’ll ruin the yoyo. Why do you want to?


#3

It is all ready ruined so it doesn’t matter, but the rims are fine so I want to use them for a mod I am doing.


(yoyo jake) #4

i think born2yoyo said leave it in acetone and it’ll eat the plastic away


#5

Oh well if it’s already ruined then alright.

I wouldn’t melt the plastic away. That’ll give off some seriously bad fumes. I would simply pry and pull at the plastic with screwdrivers and pliers. Maybe a hammer?


#6

I haven’t seen a Black Knight up close so I don’t know how tough the metal rim is. Apetrunk’s idea may be easiest, or you might try freezing it and then breaking the plastic.


#7

Would boiling it do anything?


#8

Yes heat would definitely do something. I thought to mention boiling and other heat methods, but I do not advocate doing things that can injure before trying every thing else. If you boil it you will also have to let it cool before handling it again or find a good way to hold it like pliers. Gloves/mitts will be of little protection if the boiling water gets through them, and can result in first degree burns. Believe me I know all about hot things.

I’d be happy to take it apart for you but there would be shipping costs.

What have you tried so far?

Okay got them apart. I will close the thread now.
