Cut the nut off w/ dremel. Axle threads are mostly gone. Axle does not seem to come out of the trucks, though. If I could get the axle off, the only replacement parts I'd need would be an axle, axle nut, and one bearing (I hit the outer one by accident and it bent the seal). Talking with Ted at Trampa for the last 2 hours, he's aware of the issue and we're working on a solution. I'll keep everyone posted.

Ok, Ted's confirmed that the axle does not come out. A re-thread is unlikely, so the hanger's shot.

That begs the question ...Why the set screw??? Sorry to hear of the damage. I wish I would have got in this thread earlier Bro.

Don't feel bad ,last week I ruined a brake caliper on my truck,by not paying attention... Did you know that caliper pistons aren't steel anymore? They are made of phenolic(fiberglass and resin) w/ a veneer of metal over them.:mad:

as of the last 10 years, I've been replacing the calipers / wheel cylinders along with the pads / shoes every time to avoid that sort of thing. You shouldn't have to but it just saves me headaches.

I'm going to go down the block to my local car service place and see if he can re-thread the axle. It's worth a shot. Otherwise, Ted will give me a break on a new hanger (which is certainly nice of him to do).

Doesn't matter -- the axle is too far gone to fix. Getting a replacement hanger from Ted.

Alright, finally got the replacement parts this morning. Re-assembled the board without issue and took it out for the first time today (just got back, in fact).

WOW, I am STOKED. This sport is awesome. Took me a good 1/2 hour to get the board rolling for more than a foot or two, but once I did -- holy crap. Got thrown a few times, but I figure that's part of the learning curve. Wasn't able to tack at all, and ended up doing a very long "walk of shame", but I don't care -- I had an absolute blast. Can't wait to try again.

The only thing is, I need some pads, as I got tackled a few times (at least that's what it felt like).
