Replacement Axles for Spintastics Spinabolos?
« on: April 18, 2009, 05:01:38 PM »
I bought a spinabolo a few years back, i was a beginner then so couldn't catch the diabolo. :embarassed: The ball bearing axle broke so it doesn't work nearly as well. If anyone knows if its possible to get a spare axle for my spinabolo please respond and post a link to where i can find one!  :)

you could try modifying a bit and using a short fly axle.

be sure to check to see if it really is the bearing. I know many times the washers on either side will bend, causing the axle to lock up or grind badly.. often misdiagnosed as a bad bearing.

If you take it all apart and spin the bearing with your hand around the axle, that should tell you if it's really the source of the problem.

(disclaimer: the above comment was based on years of handling these problems with customers, I'm not assuming anything)
