I CANNOT GET THIS AXLE OUT


#1

OMG MY YOYO STARTED VIBING I THINK THE AXLE IS BENT SO I TRIED TO TAKE OUT THE AXLE, I TRIED THE DRILL, I TRIED THE PLIERS, I EVEN TRIED THE FREEZER! I JUST SPENT A TON OF MONEY ON THIS I REALLY NEED TO FIX THIS!


#2

When and why did it start doing that, and what yoyo is it?


#3

I CANNOT TURN CAPSLOCK OFF. Lol jk.

Patience. Keep trying, what yoyo is it?


#4

some yoyo axles have hex key holes. check if your axle has a hex hole and use a hex key to get it out.


#5

What yoyo is it? if it is a normal set screw set up then try vise grips. If vise grips wont do it you will be screwed because it means you will have twisted the axle, and snapped it off, or you are just not strong enough.
Make sure its not a bolt/nut axle setup. If that is what you are dealing with you will brake the yoyo trying to screw it out because that is not how you get those out.


#6

With most axles, the yoyo would strip before the axle snaps.


#7

Calm down. Take a few deep breaths. Find the capslock key and disable it.

Better?

What yoyo?

What happened?

Ok

Its a raven edition 08 888, it was locktited

I stripped the axle, but i got it out

I replaced it and it works great, thx guys

I used vice grips

If you’re gonna use locktite, use the blue and very sparingly. Never red.

Glad the results are good. That’s what’s important.


#10

It was already locktited, just in a really bad place :stuck_out_tongue:

Im not gonna locktite it


#11

I’m just glad it went to a safe home :wink:

This is a bit after the fact, since he’s got it out, but…

If it’s so stuck that a pliers etc doesn’t work, a hex key definitely will not work. Please read posts to get the complete details before you recommend a solution.
