Axle Tools

Axle Extraction Pliers

The Axle Extraction Pliers greatly simplify removing nail or pin axles. The curved and grooved jaws of the Axle Extraction Pliers provide strong but even gripping power on the axle head, minimizing the risk of damage to the axle, and giving maximum leverage to the user. Just grasp the axle head and gently remove the axle with a twist-and-pull motion.

Pro-Axle Press II

The Pro-Axle Press II will improve the speed of your pinewood derby car by performing three critical procedures on nail type axles:
  1. Axle Straightening - Ensures accurate wheel tracking by creating absolutely straight axles. Improved wheel tracking equals greater speed!

  2. Axle Rounding - Ensures accurate wheel rotation by creating absolutely round axle shafts. Improved wheel rotation equals greater speed!

  3. Head Squaring - Ensures proper wheel rotation by squaring the axle head to the axle shaft. Improved wheel rotation equals greater speed!

  4. Head Beveling - Reduces the contact surface with the outside wheel hub. Less contact equals faster speed!

and an added bonus:
  1. Raised Wheel and Alignment Adjustments - When it is necessary to purposely bend an axle (to raise a front wheel or make an alignment adjustment), the Pro-Axle Press II serves as a handy clamping device for holding the axle while making the bend.

Note:
  1. The Pro-Axle Press II was designed and tested for use on BSA and PineCar nail-type axles. It may also be suitable for nail axles from other kits. The press is not intended for use with rod-type (Awana) or screw-type (Royal Rangers) axles.

Pro-Rail Rider Tool

The Pro-Rail Rider Tool works with the Pro-Axle Press II to put a precise bend in an axle for alignment adjustment and/or for running with angled axles. When coupled with the Rail-Rider alignment technique, significant performance improvements can be achieved.

Notes:
  1. A Pro-Axle Press II (Part 5130) is required to use the Pro-Rail Rider Tool.

  2. The Pro-Rail Rider Tool will implement either a 1.5 degree or a 2.5 degree bend in an axle.

  3. The Pro-Rail Rider Tool will bend the following axles: 4025, 4055, 4056, 4094, 4095, 4096, 4097, 4099, 5440, 5451, and 5465

  4. The Pro-Rail Rider Tool will not bend the following axles. 4051, 4052, 4093, 4098, and 4100. Attempting to bend one of these axle types will void the warranty.

Pro-Axle Bender

The Pro-Axle Bender provides an accurate, simple, and repeatable way to put a bend in pinewood derby axles. On typical axles, the tool supports any angle between 1/2 and 8 degrees. Axle bending allows rear wheels to run canted, and/or the front dominant axle to be aligned for rail-riding or straight alignment. Accurate alignment is one of the five keys to producing a fast pinewood derby car.

Pro-Axle Guide

The Pro-Axle Guide will improve the speed of your pinewood derby car by ensuring accurate mounting of axles:
  1. Axle Insertion - Ensures accurate mounting of axles (in axle slots) to improve alignment. Accurate alignment is critical for top speed!

  2. Wheel-to-body Spacing - Establishes the correct gap between the wheel hub and car body. The proper gap minimizes car wander and reduces excess contact between the car body and the wheel hubs.

and an added bonus:
  1. Reduced Risk of Block Damage - During the insertion process the Pro-Axle Guide provides support to the wood around the axle slot, minimizing the risk of damage.

Notes:
  1. The Pro-Axle Guide was designed and tested for use when installing wheels/axles on BSA and MV kits. However, it can be used as a gap gauge on other kits.

  2. A hex key is supplied with the tool to loosen/tighten the screw on the tool.

Axle Install Support

The Axle Install Support simplifies installing axles and setting the gap between the wheel hub and the car body. Due to the design of most pinewood derby wheels, it can be difficult to set the proper gap. On many wheels, including BSA, Awana, and Pinecar, the recess of the wheel's sidewall prevents the axle from being fully inserted.

The Axle Install Support solves this issue. The support provides a concave post to support the head of the axle while pressing the axle into place. The Axle Install Support can be used with or without the Pro-Axle Guide.
Notes:
  1. The Axle Install Support will work with any kit that uses nail-type axles. It is not intended for use with kits using screw type axles, or rod axles with hub caps.
