Problem with smaller wheel holes stuck on wider axles...

Hi
I sort of gave up on my Dragon SU 100 as I'd put spare Macquette webbed wheels on to be different. The blasted things are now jammed on. Anyone know how to remove them as they're not fully on or off?! The Dragon axles are just too wide, darn it...

Cheers
Andrew

Can you cut a fine line, through the wheel to the post?

This should relieve tension and allow the wheel to come lose.

A big T34 wheel akle should be ok for that.

Try this

Cut them flush off the axles drill a hole in the center of the wheel and the center of the axle and just pin them on with metal rod, straight pin, whatever. Or you can just glue them together but they won't be as strong. You can use a disk of plastic between them if too much plastic has been cut away.
