Hey everyone, I am wondering if it is possible to take the axel from a diabolo and use is to make a diabolo out of, say, a tennis ball (cut in half) or a couple of washing up tubs etc.
It sounds quite fun, but I don't want to ruin my axels. Do you think it will work?

I know a few people tryed to make fire diabolo`s this way. But a diabolo is a very precise object, based on some principal: gyroscope (Am I right?) and need to be perfect balanced out.
But I don`t know people who use this methode to make thei rown normal diabolo`s.

you can buy replacement axle kits for henrys and other diabolos, maybe you could try this route.
