I just wanted to hear how those that are using axle tubes are securing the axles in the tubes.
Here is the method I've been using. While it works and it secures them in there fairly well, I hate doing it so I rarely use axle tubes. Just wondering if someone else has a better/easier way. Anyway here we go...
So I take the tube and use a cutoff wheel on my dremel and cut a groove in the tube lengthwise on the tube, so I'm holding the cutoff wheel parallel with the tube. Then when I stick the axles into the tube I can see both of them in the middle and I apply JB Kwik in the middle. This method keeps the "glue" far from the wheels.
Just for clarification when I make the cut the cutoff wheel is turned in the other direction than it is in the picture. It's parallel with the tube.
Anyway, it can sometimes be difficult to get the cut right (though if I'd do it more I'm sure I'd get better at it) Anybody got any better way to get the middle opened up. I really like being able to put the "glue" in the middle rather than in the ends just to keep it clear of the wheels.
So what do you guys do? How do you secure your axles in the tubes?
