I've made a finger grind axle for my circus, like the finesse one, it works but it's not perfect, I believe that, now that I know my mistakes, if I made another one it would work fine.
 I made it in a lathe, in aluminium, and with more or less the size of the finesse's. I had to do another "screw" too, but that was easy.

Now I'll probably buy 2 finesses G2, so I don't think i'll be making another one...

i was thinking about making axlex, that'd mean i;d have to get another bolt (no worries) but the harder part is making sure that they are exact. i.e. you cant have the slopes be different or else it will end up really weird and the diabolo will tilt.

I was mucking about at the Berlin convention this week, and Henry's had a stall set up in the traders space.
They gave me a couple of new, prototype wide axles to try out. They're pretty wide, making a Henrys circus about 5mm wider than the 4erlei kit.  They spin very well, even on filthy convention-hands.
Curiouser still, the axle was recessed from the cones (a little bit on one, quite  profoundly on the other).  Both worked surprisingly well.

Alas, I had to give 'em back as they really were the only ones he had made so far.  Will keep you all informed if they make any progress.

Well done agent Donald. Blimey they sound huge though but I suppose that the 4erli kits and MB finger kits  do seem  really wide untill you get used to them.

so they're actually doing wide axle finally, eh? im supposing it was simply the axle by itself, right? on the henry's the axel is just that little piece in the middle... so perhaps you can combine wide axle + 4erli kit to make a super wide henry's eh?

Tricky to describe them, really.  The exposed part of the axle itself wasn't any wider.  The cones were what was really different on them.  How to describe???

Kind of half way between a witch's hat and a nipple on a cold day, if that makes any sense.

Sorry, I would've taken a photo, but sticking pictures of peoples new prototype kit up on the internet is hardly the done thing :)

Hi guys,

In Berlin I tried out some prototype wide axels from Henrys. They were very, very nice. They are noticably different in shape and feel from normal wide axels and about 4mm wider than the 4ereli wide axels. Also they give you much more control, especially when doing verital axis tricks, something that normal wide axels make very difficult indeed.

If enough people ask for them Henrys will start selling them. I can assure you they are worth the investment.

Hello Luke,

Are it actually the axles wich are prototype, or just the hubs? These day`s I`m doing 3 a bit, henrys is the way to go... they have better stability and longer spin. I`m sure there is a markt for new stuff like this, thnx for keeping us up to date!

btw, are you talking about the berlin convention, or just about juggeling in berlin somewhere?

Great news, guys.. well, for UK residents at least

I've been pestering firetoys.co.uk, asking them to stock henry's own upgrade hubs (the plastic/teflon ones) recently and they've just mailed me this:

well, not that anyone knows of (read this thread ;) ). if one exists, it's a custom job. henry's diabolos only have hub modifications; finesses have the axle kit. you cant find an axle kit for a henry's or a hub kit for a finesse.

just saw this on Jongle.net

http://www.jongle.net/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=160678#160678

Its a finger axle for a circus. Yoda from brazil made one a while back as well, might be an interesting thread to follow.

For a while I bought the Tuning kits from acrobat.net

TK 2 Original
1 Achse 4 mm
1 Carbonhülse 6 mm
2 Teflonnarben (schwarz oder weiß)
2 Teflonscheiben 40 mm mal 2 mm (schwarz oder weiß)
2 Hutmuttern Messing 4 mm
2 Scheiben 20 mm
Gesamtgewicht Diabolo 256 gr

Yesterday I weighted the diabolo with the new kit and the result was
270g.
Now my question is, is my kitchen scales wrong or the information which I found on the acrobat.net?
