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.

  1. Gotta say, that was an awesome performance you put on at the Maker Faire–too bad I missed your booth, but at least I got some video of you on stage.

    By the way, what was the song you were playing during the performance? I’ve watched the video so much now that the music is getting stuck in my head.

  2. Thanks for checking it out. Feel free to put the video on youtube or whatever if you want.
    The song is Different Kind of Love (Prefuse 73 remix) by Trans Am.

    It’s a super catchy song, in fact I’ve even written a cover version of it.

  3. I’ve put the video on youtube here. Thanks for passing along the name of the song…

  4. Hey! Will you be at the Maker Faire in Austin in October? I had to miss the one in San Francisco, but I’m definitely going to be at the one in Austin!

  5. I’ll probably have to skip the Austin Maker Faire… Unless some miracle occurs and some company flies me out there to help manage their booth.
