    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

    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

  7. Lucas Riedel Sandkilde says:

    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.

  8. Bensaii says:

    any tips if your axle is damaged and you cant even get the wheel off to re-thread it?

  9. Jack Reeves says:

    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 

  11. MrBarryThor says:

    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

  17. Eddie Johnson says:

    Is there a way you can rethread the axle if you don't have the tool? Help please

  18. diver dave says:

    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

  19. Zachary Daly says:

  21. Generation2k18 says:

    Die what size??

  22. Noah Cagle says:

    You always say "now I can go skate" but I've always wondered if you suck or not

  23. Burt Bobain says: these shit wheels. buy wheels that protect your axles. like.oldschool wheels.and.some.good manufacturers.

  24. Lee Ratcliff says:

    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.

  76. Barry Zadikoff says:

    You could always repair the nut with a tap tool.

  77. Andreas Egersett says:

    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

  78. Kingofthegames says:

    oh i never do this

    when my axle breaks i just get a plank of wood and beat the fucking bolt on

  86. Kane's Crimes says:

    It's 2018 but the description below took place in 2007…
    …so it balances out…

    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.
