Both colors pop in the sky! Don't worry, if you get one color, you'll want another slick immediately so you can just grab the other color then!

Tighten and secure with a pin.

Great idea! It might not be quite as secure, but what about just drilling through the axle just outside the wheel collar, and insert a cotter pin. Thanks for sharing the great tip. I'm doing a new build and will give your method a try.

No use the set screw as is. Drill a hole 90degs from it.

I understand, I went back and re-read your initial post and saw I misunderstood you. I edited my response to add a different twist to it, what do you think of that idea? I'm going to do it your way 1st. Thanks again, DG

If there is enough shaft left, then okay. Our shafts usually fit into a wood block so we dont have room to drill there
