Help getting bolt out of roller blades

I'm completely baffled by my blades. I lost some of the original hardware that came with my runners, so I replaced it with nuts and bolts that fit, as I have done many times in the past. This time, the bolt in the back wheel of my skate somehow got stuck, and I can't get it out. Help? I've tried the following:
  1. Yanking on it with plyers
  2. HItting it with a hammer, which got it part way out, but not even close to all the way
  3. Spraying it with WD40

The really weird thing is I can turn it, I just can't yank it out. WTF is going on? It went in easily enough, and I've used the same width bolt for years with these runners.

Might have gotten double threaded somehow. If it were me, I'd be thinking about carefully putting a drill to the bolt.

You used an actual bolt

I would think, since the bolt () does not fit perfectly, the bearings would get deformed and therefore make it almost impossible to take a bolt () out.

I've never seen this before TBH, so I can't help. But good luck.

Sounds like the spacer has threads, and the bolt is seized within them. That would explain the turning without progress. Drilling it out might be the answer, you're more than likely not going to get it out too quickly otherwise. Careful not to break anything either way you go about it...
