Posted:I have just been given two beaming contact juggling balls (very tough) and would really like to make some poi out of them. They are very bright but need to be charged via a small socket in each ball. This means i have to be able to take the balls in and out of their 'Thing' ( see i'm stuck already ) when they need to be charged.
I have no problem making the string part, finger loops,etc but it is the actual fixing them to the string without covering the balls that is my problem. Does anyone have a clue what to do?please...i'm begging you.

Thank you in advance
Any suggestions welcome.

Posted:well if you can dissasemble them, you could drill a small hole in one side and either push a string through and knot it , or affix some kind of clip system.

Posted:that realy sucks <rant> I hate the way some ppl are so dishonist some barstuard ran into my girlfriends first car, that she'd had for like 2 days, and just left with no note or anything, it was just parked, normaly in a carpark and some git drove into it doing over 700 worth of damage and just left - the car was only that new and she only has 3rd party to keep the (stupidly hight imho) insurance down </rant>

Anyhows how i was on the persil website

1)at uni bought persil tablets (on sale so cheep)
2)couldn't find net in pack - placed in sock
3)sock covered in white stuff after wash
4)try and find net thing again - find phone number
5)phone number costs money, net is free (well, pre-payed)
6)look on persil website for free nets and roberts your dads brother.
