LOL no one is going to send you 300dollar lathe. Especially to another country where shipping fee would be crazy

The drawbar is not held by the chuck.

The drawbar is basically a way to apply tension to hold the yoyo against the chuck, then the chuck hits the curves of the yoyo and centers it gently.

For yoyos where it doesn't pass through, you simply thread the rod directly into the yoyo just like a super long axle.

I don't think there are many wood turners on the boards but...
What would be The best way to secure a yoyo that doesn't have a take apart design?  For example: finishing the side of a one piece wooden that was attached to the stock.

You would finish the sides BEFORE cutting the gap all the way down, that way you can just chuck it like normal, finish, then cut the gap down to axle sized last. Otherwise, the axle section becomes a big weak point and you'll likely snap it trying to finish the other side.

If the axle is already done, you're.. um.. kinda screwed really. Unless you happen to have very deep jaws, I can't think of any way to do it offhand.

You can argue with me if you want... but you'll still be wrong.

I just sent a good portion of my tax refund to Nick Carter.  Thank you for this post Kyle- I've been wanting a lathe for years, and wouldn't have a clue where to start if not for this thread.

And my wife finds it hillarious that I spent last night looking at wood online ;).

Turning a one-piece (no glue holding the sides and axle together) yo-yo is a great woodturning skill building experience. Dial in here to see lots of design examples: http://www.yoyospin.com/gallery/yoyos/
