Default Collet type axles

I am trying out a set of collet type axles that I have made up. Excuse the ugly screws (gotta get some better looking ones). Will be trying them tomorrow night.

Default Bearing type

Are they micro 7mm bearings? I've not seen any with red dust covers, only fugly purple.

Nylon nuts are self sealing, what’s keeping the left wheel nuts from unscrewing, for example bicycle pedals on the left side are left hand threaded, did you left hand thread the left side screws? Or are you applying liquid unlock?

I imagine just torque fron the threads? .


How deep is the bore on those axles? Neat stuff, but don't those types of screws have a habit of comming loose without loctite each time?

My snowboard bindings have hardware with a red nylock line down the threads.

The movement on the left side will loosen the nuts unless they are “locked”, on the right side it would tighten them, theoretically, Blue loctite is temp, red is permanent, the snowboard isn’t revolving, I tend to use blue because I often switch boards or adjust the distance between or the angle.

Well the center bolt wont(or shouldnt) have any pressures exerted on it to loosen them. No matter what direction he skates, or which sides the wheels are on.

The center bolt shouldn't touch any thing but the inside of the axle.

Kinda like proline or Snyder Advantage kingpin setups, only in a skate truck?


I know a couple people with advantages or proline that have either overtightened their grub screws, or left them with TOO little torque resulting in the action comming loose. Or in this case, a wheel could come off.

It would look pretty cool though.

The bearings don't touch the screws. They are countersunk screws that spread the end of the axles to clamp the inside race of the outer bearing. No loctite necessary.

Default update

Tried them out last night. Worked really well for a prototype. One wheel moved slightly under hard hockey stopping, but I know how to modify the mechanism to improve it. Now to get/make the specific screws I want to use.
