Yoyospirit's Powder Coats and Mods Thread


#1

So I decided to start a new thread, since for some reason, the pictures on the old thread all stopped appearing. That thread was pretty cluttered anyway.

Powder coated Eternal Throws Hope

Powder Coated DNA

Powder Coated H5xChief

Polished Irony JP

Powder Coated Wooly Markmont

Polished Chief

Powder Coated E=MC2

Polished Summit

More to come!


Car finishes vs. Yo-yo finishes

How long do you actually spend on the polished ones? And what grit do you go down to? (I go down to 2,000)


#3

Often like, 15 mins a half.

^those throws are absolutly amazing


#5

Awesome stuff all around, Wesley. You should post some pics of your rethreads here too.


#6

Your work is just fantastic. You’ve got that polishing down to a fine art, they look incredible. :o


#7

Thanks! That’s a bit difficult to catch a picture of though lol


#8

For a moment I thought this was the “flat ano” thread.


#9

That’s the best!


#10

Those all look great. Have you ever done a mask where only part of it is mirror-polished? e.g. the look of the Werrd 86400? Or would that be a completely different technique? I assume the 86400 is just machined but a polished ring in the cup of a Valor or Irony JP would be sweet.

#18

Love that blue and white summit. What’s the charge of something of that combo?


#19

Wanted to post this because he did awesome work.

I approached him to help put in a new axle for this Trvth because it was defective. He took the job, and made it play better than it ever has, and possibly better than one with the stock axle.
