mrcnja's mods

It seems that having a thread that includes all your mods is the hip new thing to do, so here goes.

This FH2 was highwalled and siliconed for skillman14. The face of the yo-yo polished up really nicely even without extremely high grit sandpaper.



These Freehand Zeroes were silicone recessed and tuned for oyoyoy. They play so nice.

The "roughness" on the edges of the recess on the FH2 is a bit of an optical illusion. As far as I can tell it is a combination of a slight imperfection in the silicone itself and a cheap camera. In person you can't see it.

After taking another look at the FH2 I have found the reason for the "chatter." It isn't chatter at all. It is the 'www.yo-yo.com' from the inside of the yo-yo showing through the plastic. This is why the "chatter" is nowhere to be seen on the Freehand Zeros.

Ya, it looks really clean around the edges.  After seeing that, I'm going to start polishing my own stuff after making the cuts.  Kudos on the shine.

Back from the grave with  a FH2 and a Throw Monkey. Both are going to RobbieG123.

YoYoJam's rims can be a bit ugly especially after some tarnish, but that's nothing a good polish won't take care of.

I used 220, 400, 600, and 800 grit sandpaper in both radial and crosshatching patterns. That was followed up with a quick brush with steel wool. Then I finished things off with a liberal use of Nevr Dull.

These two Freehand Zeros are currently en route to Buddy Jim. Black is a very unforgiving color, but it turned out very nicely. I feel like I'm getting a bit better at polishing the faces after cutting. (Click on the pictures for full size)





Disregard the smudging in the pictures. I forgot to clean my camera's lens before shooting.

For the highwalled FH2010, did you also have to sand down the spacers to prevent the string from falling into the gap?

Nope, I just leave the small lip between the bearing the the inner edge of the response groove intact. That prevents any string slippage issues.

Ahh, the pic makes it look like you also cut the wall near the bearing seat.
