Wheel Is Striped-Sugestions
 
Hey,

My wheel on my inline skate is stripped and can't get it out. Any suggestions? Anything would very appreciated.

You mean like the bolt?

Cut a notch across it and use a flathead screwdriver.

You can also pick up a cheap product at the local home depot or value home center. Its called an EASY OUT. they come in a set of 3 or 4. You tap the correct size to fit the stripped allen location. This is not the type for DRILLING. the tip of the tool will NOT have a drill bit look to it.

If the allen is metric, see if an english size may still get some bite or Vice Versa if english. If you can find one close and gently tap into hole with hammer, grab with a vice grip or adjustable wrench, down as close to axle as possible. you may get it to pop free.

Here's a better view of this product. I have one at home and it's a very useful tool.

The not so high tech version of these has a simple square tip and are more difficult to use with success. The grabit is prob one of the best extractor tools available and one set will last a lifetime. Well worth the small investment. Being a machinist working with many insert type tooling, i deal with stripped screws frequently. From small T6 to T35 torx and other assorted bolts and retainer screws. The tool works very well. A stripped screw removal is just 30 seconds away.

Alum. axels can seize up in the Stainless or chromed nut. Never-Sieze will prevent rusting and bond siezing of reactive metals. At any auto parts store they sell small packets of the product for about a buck. Same product used to put on the spark plug threads before installing. When ever I get myself or children new equipment I will take each screw out and give each a dab. Saves you lots of problems later on.

When you do get your axles back in remember to not over tighten. You only need to snug them.
