So I went to my local skate shop and picked up a skate tool. Just got into longboarding and had $10 so I bought the one without the die. I figured I wouldn't need it. I came home and cleaned and lubed my bearings and while putting on the axle but, JUST MY LUCK it stripped the nut. Now I have to wait until tomorrow to fix it. Ugh
How do you remove the dye from the tool
Is there any way to do this without a die?
What are the waders for
hey my axle or nut is like spinning there but not coming off at all, how do i solve this? ists either the axle thread or the nut which i cant seem to tell
whatever he og other skaters say, there is no advantage of not tightening your wheels fully. the inner ring of the bearing is meant to be stationary, whilst the rest of the bearing is what should turn. it is loud and inconvinient not to tighten it fully. scooter wheels are tightened fully, and they spin for several minutes.
any tips if your axle is damaged and you cant even get the wheel off to re-thread it?
the pig skate tool has a threader also
hey i was wondering if you can tell me how to get a stripped bolt off of a truck cause my axle is'int stripped its my bolt so if you try to loosen it it tightens up so i was wondering if you can make a video on how to get a stripped bolt off of a truck for me cause you are a skateboard genius so if you can it would be really helpful thanks
If you dont have this tool just put the nut on top of the truck and hammer it down until it gets past the bent threads and then screw it on it'll re-thread it when you screw
What kind of wheels?
I wont to see you skate
Can you do this on hollow axles or will it mess it up? Need HELP on this!
shit, my axle is so fucked up, i cant get the die in. suggestions?
how do you fix it if the nut is stuck on
Is there a way you can rethread the axle if you don't have the tool? Help please
if your using the old fashion die with the long handles … take the axle off the skate board – then you can easily turn the tool.be sure to use cutting oil or wax with your die cutter and work slowly
What skate tool does he use I need one like that
Great Vid, one of a kind!
Die what size??
You always say "now I can go skate" but I've always wondered if you suck or not
justmdont.buy these shit wheels. buy wheels that protect your axles. like.oldschool wheels.and.some.good manufacturers.
When you are using a die to cut or clean a thread always use a lubricant like trefolex. Also, you never cut a thread in one pass (constantly turning the die in the one direction until the end) do a half turn or so then back it off a quater turn to let the swarf clear the die (thats why the die has three or more cutouts around it, to help clear swarf out and not get clogged up and jamed). Keep doing this until you have reached the end of the thread. If you don't clear the swarf out it can jam up the die and thread and cut a really nasty notchy/broken thread or worse strip/cross the thread completely, which means new truck time.
The top of my axle is still in bad shape & I cant fit the bolt at all. What can I do?
can you tell me what so special about skateboard truck nut(wheels) ,i buy some in the hardwere store and i cant screw it on the truck.only skate nuts can be mounted?only in skate shop you can get this skate nuts?

I'm poor but now I can afford one but fuck this city, there is no skate tool for sale here so I cut the tip of my axle for about 2 mm and it worked! I can skate like Dustin Dollin
Do a video on the difference between plastic trunks vs metal trunks
I have a different tool, but it also has that axle fixer. but it can't come off, so when I try to use it with the tool on it, it never gets a grip of the axle. plz help, it never works.

My wheel is stuck on my trucks please help.
lol i just used a claw hammer and rethreaded it by hand
anyone have any thoughts???? braaaand new pudwill grizzly trucks and i couldnt get them to tighten very much… i have never put so much force into tightening a nut before i i think i almost broke my vise grip wrench to get it to turn and then again to get it off??? bad trucks? or something else?
my truck is bent or something, it looks crooked and turns to the left on its own
I swear americans use the stupidest measurements… Why in the fuck would someone make the axle of 7.9 mm (5/16 inch) instead of 8??! What were they thinking??!

My nut on one axle won't come off what do I do to get it off thanks!
Can someone help? I took my wheels out to clean my bearings, which I'm never doing again, and I tightened the nut as tight as I could get it so the bearings would be in. When I tried to loosen it, it wouldn't come off. I've only had these trucks a few months. This happened to the last pair. Please help ASAP!
are washers really necessary ? i have only one and its in the inside, so should i also put one on the outside?

Do you have any tips to get the nut off a stripped thread. It just keeps spinning. The wheel is still on and I want to get it off.
…but what if I don't have the tool?
is there a way to do this without a die?
Thank you. Your video helps me as a beginner a lot. I hope you make more informative video like these. Looking faward. Greeting from Thailand 🙂 #landofsmile
The axle nut on my trucks, with the wheels on the truck is stripped, how do I remove the axle nut?
silver t tool is better
You could always repair the nut with a tap tool.
see this is crap about not tightening the axel nut all the way down the only thing that should stop you from doing so is not having a spacer between your bearings. if you have one between them and you tighten it down then it makes you bearings work properly
oh i never do this
when my axle breaks i just get a plank of wood and beat the fucking bolt on
What if the threads on the nut make it turn in place, like it won't come off?
what size is the axle nut cant find it anywhere
My nut is broken on my kingpin what should u do when that happens i can not replace my bushings
the axle nut with the wheels on the trucks is stucked how to remove the axle nut?
okay i have my nut cross threaded and cant remove it from the axle, it just spins in place on the end. does anything help?
And what if you dont have neither?
It's 2018 but the description below took place in 2007… …so it balances out… …right?…
I once fixed my "mushroomed" axle with a knife and a nail…and another hanger. I used the knife tip like a chisel and the hanger to tap the knife tip through the "mushroomed-over" threads(of which there were 3-1/2) ,and then I ran the edge of the blade through the "new" threads to open'em up a little more and twisted on a nut from a previous set of trucks. It worked out alright, but if I had used a die I would've been able to skate for an extra hour or two that day.
My motherfucking axle nut is literally stuck. Won't budge! New god damned longboard. Came just a week ago.
How did u get the nut off the truck?!?! I can't get the nut off the truck it just spins when i try to take it off PLZ HELP
