We were playing around trying to learn 2 diabolos last week, this is a way to save time speeding up that 2nd diabolo.  Anyone seen it done before?  It might be a good way of teaching beginners Diabolo.

THAT'S BRILLIANT!  Imagine the possiblities with that excalibur thingy ^^  What type of diabolo did you use? Is that a magnetic drill?  I'm gonna need to try that.

Henry's Circus Diabolos.  It's a normal Drill using a 10mm socket adapter that fits the bolt holding the Diabolo together.

Power tools + Diabolo = another level of laziness?

That may make learning the 2d shuffle easy, but how is this going to help you learn how to start it on your own? I'm sure an audience wouldn't like you cancelling a show because you couldn't find the power outlet  :lol:

how fast does that make the diabolo spin, as compared to how fast you can spin it up with the sticks alone? that would make a pretty interesting start for 3D or excalibur...

Matt - The drill spins the diabolo about the same speed as I can speed it to using sticks (but I'm not good at Diabolo) about enough to climb the string 3 or 4 times.

Duncan - I guess most audiences would perfer the powertool on stage anytime, but good idea to get a cordless drill and a spare battery    :D

Their trailer had a power drill in it.  I'm gonna take mine to Bristol, I've got some Vertax stuff in mind if someone wants to help out...
