Are you referring to the production Project? If so, there will be more made for the Project anniversary coming up in November. They are the exact same, made with the "flaws" and everything.

Here we've moved on to a standard fastener. We looked around at some other yoyos and is seemed like most were using a 4mm set-screw as an axle. No reason to re-invent that, so we adopted it. We still have a chamfer on the inside of the rim but overall things are starting to look even more refined and the weight is getting closer. Still no way of keeping all the axle parts from falling out should you take the yoyo apart though.

I remember at the time there was much talk of where and how to add our name although I think we had already decided on "Project". It's funny that it evolved to use the definition of the word project that refers to "a special project", etc. We intended for it to be the definition that means "to throw, cast, or impel forward" as in "I projected my voice". It's even a different pronunciation, but it sounds really funny now.

i believe this is the wrong picture

Not sure if this is the proper thread to ask this question, but:

How many raw projects were released into the wild??

Hmmm, good question. We didn't sell very many like that. perhaps only a couple dozen max.

Hey Shawn first off, can you show us some "soda blast gone wrong" photos and second, can we also get a video of you guys making something sweet? Not just the live cam stuff but a camera really close to the observation window on the side of the lathe and so you could show us some cuttin'? You know, the more metal shaved, the better. I remember seeing a vid done by Ernie at General Yo and it was short but so cool for us not so equipment-fortunate enthusiasts.

Then maybe someone savvy with editing software could put in some epic music and really herald whatever creation you're making with a bang. Ride of The Valkryes by Wagner comes to mind. Haha
