But does it sleep? Commercial plastic yoyos often have adjustable width, open it up enough and it will sleep, i.e., spin at the bottom of the string. This is how you do tricks. If you have wobble, I suspect you have a weight imbalance, either radially or side to side. Or something is not PERFECTLY centered.
A good yoyo is very hard to turn.

Dan- It does not sleep. I’ve played with those yo-yos and they are so fun.

Gotta have the string loose on the axle, else, build with a bearing. Use proper yoyo string, and make sure you just loop it over the axle. In other words, thin string, cut to twice the length you want, folded over the axle.
Look at what this guy does-
If you want a couple strings, PM me with your street address, I’ll stick some in an envelope, I have a bunch.
I used to be pretty good, its hell when your arthritis keeps you from throwing your yo.
