How to Mod a Bolt Yo-Yo… and Maker Faire

I sell a lot of modified Bolt’s through this site, but I always like to help teach folks how to modify their own yo-yos, so I’ve published How to Mod a Bolt Yo-Yo on

Any feedback is always appreciated. I’d love to see more yo-yo instructables.

For those of you in the Bay Area, I’ll be doing a yo-yo demo and a yo-yo workshop at the Maker Faire this weekend. If you are at the Faire, stop by and say hi.

    Thanks for posting all of those yo-yo Instructables. They’re really well done. You should come drop by our booth at the Maker Faire and pickup some free stickers and the such.

    the more i think about it, the more i’m into the whole instructables system. would be great to get a whole umbrella of stuff for yo-yo beginners, but i’m not sure what else there would be to do. i guess there’s dyeing and painting yo-yos, but i’m hardly the guy to do those. maybe we should talk to pat about putting up the raider mod!

    anyways, yeah. way to be, doc!

    I wouldn’t miss it for the world. I have a booth to man and a couple performances to dobut I have some friends at Instructables and I’d love to meet Eric.
    See you there.

    Lots of potential… not necessarily for tricks, but def for mods etc. That being said, I do think some tricks would lend themselves to instructables format.
