I want to keep making yoyo

« on: December 29, 2012, 10:11:46 AM »

Hi

Some of you, and most of you may not, know that I try to make a yoyo.
Such as this one;



The Angkasa
Made on December 2010 by RevYoLution, and only 2 prototype is ever made.
All this time I try to find a machinist, here on Indonesia (Jakarta region especially) that capable of making yoyos, and it's not easy, I swear.

Most of the machinist here not accustomed to make small, precise things.
So I try to contact some, most of them decline from making a yoyo, and others are making an unplayable things shaped like yoyo.

but I just too persistent to give up.

And after finding a machine shop that capable of making yoyos, this happens :




Here are the 3 prototype that I have

First prototype


Dia : 56 mm
Width : 44 mm
weight : 54.5 g
and it pulsing due to some precision problem.

Second prototype


Dia : 56 mm
Width : 44 mm
weight : 56.5 g
the first prototype, even though that it's pulsing, give me an idea of how it plays, and it feels kinda light, so i bring up the weight a little bit.
this one vibes due to some mistake when making the axle thread.

Third prototype


Dia : 56 mm
Width : 44 mm
weight : 57 g
And this one is OK!

So what do you think about this one?

They look cool! I used to live in Jakarta and I wouldn't imagine finding a machinist there.

Sorry about my lack of update.
So that yoyo that I'm working on is featured on yoyoskills

http://www.yoyoskills.com/?p=13320

and before that, here

http://www.ozhiriz.com/2013/02/capital-serum.html#

I raised the weight quite a bit, the last prototype didn't perform up to expectation of many that tried it. So its 66,5 gram with exact same dimension.

The final prototype are done, and I've done a small run of 50 pcs Serums that waiting to be anodized as of now.

So ho do you guys think about my design?
