Help: Changing Wheel and Getting Good allen key

Problem solved

Hello,

Been on my seba skate for 10hrs plus over the past 1mth. Now trying to change out the wheel to older wheel to learn hockey stop. I have a problem now. Only manage to change out 3 wheel so far. I cant remove the 4th one. Even broke one allen key...... Think that is lousy one. Twisted another allen key. Those black one but is a very old one. Probably over 10 years old.

Now only left the one that come with the skate. I can see that the allen "screw" is starting to become round! Just starting but I am scare if I continue, I be stuck with a damage screw for good. DIE........ Anyone can advise?

Also, I think I need a durable allen key. Anyone can advise where to buy?

Solution: Got some advise. I bought an wrench and put in the hex key and manage to remove the screw. Axle slight damage from the previous attempt. Need to get a new Axle.

lol, you could have gone to any skate shops for them to help you ...

anyway, the skate shops will also sell a good quality allen key, just ask for the triangle one, they will know

Ya tot of that but might as well just get one good allen key since will use it again.

I dun think the triangle one will work man. The axles is has threadlocker applied and is the red type. Suppose to be very strong. I was advise by other user to get a proper wrench. Got a ratchet wrench as the shop only have that. $21. So ok lah.

hmm, any pics if possible?

the triangle type is good for any use, whether 1st time unlocking axles, or just evryday use ...

a wrench seems overkill to me

Re: Help: Changing Wheel and Getting Good allen key

Hm. Ok, the triangle one might be good. It is just my opinion that it might not worked. Maybe it could be that due to my previous attempt of trying to remove the axles that start to round off the axles.

I had a K2 and have no problem removing the wheel even with the K2 allen key so I think it might be due to the skate and the amount of threatlocker applied.

I am not sure of the pic you are requesting so I just provide the following

The threadlocker. What you are seeing is the actual amount applied. No more at the other side. (In case everyone start saying that amount is normal, it is just my opinion )


No sure if you can see the slight rounding.


The wrench which I am proud of. Is not huge and only cost 21. Still come with a adaptor. And a few screw head which i dun think will interest anyone.

Re: Help: Changing Wheel and Getting Good allen key

word of advice, to prevent rounding your axles, insert the allen key as deep as it can go into the axle, that way you wont round it that easily
