I know I am not the first to do this at all but I thought I would try and document this little project in case others are interested. So as I mentioned in one of the other threads, I can’t fit the Evolve gears with wheels on the TB 218’s, even my Trampa Superstar hubs with the BoardBumpers bearing adapter will not fit. It fits fine without the gear but with it nope. It’s a tad bit too short.
I was linked LHB’s video on how to chop a caliber 2 hangar, so I went to lowes and picked up a metal cutting wheel for my dremel. I practiced on my caliber 2’s last night and learned what to do and not to do.
Wrap the hangar in something or you’ll lose paint. Should of been obvious but I was impatient and was having way too much fun with a cutting wheel.
When you see sparks stop cutting in that spot you’re hitting the axel and that spot should be good.
Making the cut length wise deep enough is important or else you wont get it off the teeth on the axel as it’s almost impossible to slide off without it. See the picture below.
I kinda just bolted it to my table and went ham with the dremel. Came out pretty solid for my first try.
I have some errands to run for a few hours but afterwards. It’s chopping time!
