3" dyed delrin top (steel fixed tip)
« on: November 14, 2018, 09:39:20 AM »

One of may failed attempts at a OWB top.  I was able to salvage it and turn it in to a very playable fixed axle top.  I also experimented with dying it.  If you want I can just dye the rest so it's a more uniform color.  Slight vibe that may need to be balanced depending on how picky you are (not excessive, I could still balance it on my thumb nail).  Weights in the 90-95 gram range.  Steel fixed tip epoxied into place.  Good for regen play, not too good at wire walkers (plays very similar to the top I used in my Trompillo application).  Matching button (with white string) included.  Lets say... $40 including shipping within U.S.    PM me if interested.

Love the pattern and the color! How'd you get the former?

Thanks!  I masked the parts I didn't want dyed with hot glue, though I'm trying to think of other alternatives as the hot glue wasn't ideal for my ultimate dyeing goals.  It did work though, so expect good things to come :)

Man, I saw this way too late!   :(

As I said before, I would not have hesitated to buy one of these, especially with a fixed tip.

Congratulations to the lucky new owner!

I'll probably be selling another salvaged one here soon, so keep an eye out  :)
