It’s some imperfection in either the hanger or the bolt

Stainless and aluminum galls like mad. Should’ve been grade 8 or some other kind of carbon steel. Or anti-seize should’ve been applied

It feels like a hit or miss. I opened up the hole by 0.01mm on the 184s. Also I will offer fixed axles soon to also improve this. A little grease will work wonders.

About the mounts falling, again hit or miss. You should crank down the 4 bolts as hard as you can. They dig a notch in the slot on the plate. Hold the bolt and tighten the nut, you can get it extremely tight this way.

So what should I do about this hanger and bolt man, cuz it’s completely not moving, even with extreme heat, vice and hammering.

They’re grade 12.9, not stainless.

1220Mpa yield strength vs
900Mpa 6Al-4V titanium alloy.

Theyre the strongest axle you can reasonably get.

See if you can drop some oil in there, even if it means the bolt goes further in. Right now it is ceased so heating it up wont work very well. Heat works best when theres no corrosion or debree. I install my kingpins with heat. Even 50deg F makes an insane difference in the feel.

The bolt completely won’t turn now

Yes just did it, and put lube all over. The bolt turns but it doesn’t come out or go in anymore. Just rotates in the same position.

@BluPenguin 17-4PH (H900 treated) steel :love_you_gesture:

Also this did happen with Surfrodz. I personally think shoulder bolts suck if you are using them for skate axles so there’s that.

It’s okay I’m sure @Boardnamics will replace the hanger and shoulder bolt and I can send this one back so he can see what to improve

Will there be a way to swap the non fixed for fixed? I havnt used or even bolted together the pieces.

I don’t care about paying the difference or shipping, but I don’t want a ‘oh it might work’ piece of hardware :expressionless:

I love boardnamics for all the effort they put in, but this is one of the reasons we dont use shoulderbolts.
once they are locked in (with thread locker) shouler bolts become really difficult to remove.

I had this same issue and the only way to gte them out was with a hammer and brute force.

this is also the main reason why i dont want to use shoulder bolts on our hangers.

I know i am also a vendor but that has nothing to do with it, we tested alot of setups and always had problems with shoulderbolts.

I can swap them, sure. The fixed axles Im offering are modified shoulder bolts with threads at the ends

Thanks @Boardnamics sent you a DM. I’m sure the new hanger will be perfect
