Overview

The Pro Axle Press is a precision C.N.C. machined tool designed to straightening and help correctly shape all nail style axles found in Derby Car kits. All Derby Kit Axles are not created equal and until they are all shaped correctly, achieving the desired alignment for maximum speed is almost impossible. By pressing them straight and tapering the axle head, you are many steps closer to a high performance racing part.

1. The Pro-Axle Press will improve the speed of your derby car by performing three critical procedures on nail type axles:

2. Axle Straightening: Ensures accurate wheel tracking by creating absolutely straight axles. Improved wheel tracking equals greater speed!

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

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

5. Head Tapering: The recessed side of the tool is designed to re-shape the axle head, further reducing contact with the wheel and reducing friction.

And an added bonus: 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 serves as a handy clamping device for holding the axle while making the bend. When using nail-type axles, the Pro-Axle Press and Pro-Body tool work together to make a well-aligned and smooth rolling car.

Note: The Pro-Axle Press 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.
