Metal Zero

How do I get the axle out of the metal freehand zero? I also wanted to recess it. Would I be able to do this with a drill and screw driver like a plastic yoyo? If not,what would you do to recess it.(I don’t want to send it to a modder) My friend said that i could use his wood lathe. Would that work for metal too?

To get the axel out I just twisted it out with my finger. if not get some paper and a pair of pliers so you don’t strip the thread with the pliers

chuck it in the drill and unscrew it it works cause the drill holds it very tight just dont tighten it up on the drill you may overtighten it. as for the recess i dont know. you can try but wear goggles and u would need a strong jewelers screwdriver a pro one.
