Ask DocSk8 (Expert Indoor Skate Building Advice) This forum is different then the other SkateLog forums in that it is not a discussion forum, but rather a place you can ask skate building expert Fred "DocSk8" Benjamin about building and repairing indoor speed, derby, and jamskate quad roller skates. Please start a new thread for each new question.

Hopefully soon I`ll just get a complete set of replacements with Ti axles.
Bingo, that was what I expected you would find would be the cause. Hopefully you will find a permanent fix.

Ask wes, but i think you could add some bearing lock loctite to the axle, wiggle it back and forth to get the liquid down in it. That would hold it for a bit. Or add spacers.

Try glue first, cant remember what I used in my Magnum trucks but it was a locktight product designed for spun bearings in engines. It is holding up after 5 years of abuse.

Thing about it is, it`s not "wiggle" loose, it takes something to get it to move, a little than my fingers lol. I have it out right now so I may just locate the loctite and give it a go.

Axles should not be coming loose in a forged truck.

If all else fails I have some fully threaded ti magnum axles with speed nuts from a super white magnum. they have already crossed the globe once but could go back.

SG Ti axles are too fat in the middle to risk pressing into the Snyder truck unless you increase the bore diameter. . The possibility of breaking the truck housing is too great. (been there, done that)
