I have seen alumin(i)um yo-yos that have been lying in a damp garage for several months. They developed a thick white crust. Maybe they were stored next to some corrosive chemicals. Luckily they were not mine. :-) With my own aluminum yo-yos I have indeed never had any problems. --[[User:HB|HB]] 03:19, 6 Feb 2006 (PST)
