Axle alignment jigs are back on sale. Shipping times might be extended due to trip limitations but you'll get your product as soon as possible.

Just placed an order for a second one last week. The one I ordered a month or so ago is a little warped I think, my wheels wobble a bit

  • Sorry that it sounds like you got a bad one. I try to check each one to make sure the blocks slide well and click into place. I do accept returns if you're unhappy with a jig. — redlinederby

Got mine today and already putting it to use. Than you love it already.

  • Lookin' good! Even got some screws in the ashtray, LOL — redlinederby

Great jig....and i do use hot glue, works fine on a race track.  Use Stanley dual temperature and a high quality glue gun like the Arrow brand for $60 at Home Depot, the hotter the glue, the stiffer it cools.

Just a tip, instead of using small weights to hold the car down, just use a rubber band.

  • Agreed. I drop on a few wheels weights to keep it firm, nothing too serious — redlinederby

I thought of a design change to improve the jig.  Put in a bolt and wing nut through the pieces that slide and add a long slot in the sides,  that way you can lock in your wheelbase and prevent it from falling out if you turn it upside down.

  • Not a bad idea, I might explore that, thanks. When are you turning your jig upside down? — redlinederby

When gluing plain axles with no tubes, I want to hold the car upright in one hand, and put the jig upside down on the wheels, then flip it over.

If I flip the car over, the glue is not sticky enough to keep the axles from falling out.

Got mine a few weeks ago! Thanks
