I turned a toy diabolo into a bearing.
« on: January 18, 2009, 04:52:43 pm »
I have a really rubbish pink toy diabolo that my mate got me for my birthday as a joke. Since it's rubbish I decided to put a spinabolo axle on it, and it works! I added a couple washers so it fits better then covered the washers with duct tape so if the string slips it won't rub on the washer and snap.

Here are some pics:

it's alright. Better than it used to be, but not as good as a spinabolo.

Looks good but just you wait till the tape comes off and everything is horrible but in that time just keep playing
