Title: 3mm be 1/8 shafts
Post by: LRC on September 03, 2019, 04:17:08 pm
Any thoughts on drilling out 3mm wheel hubs to 1/8?

After doing this, can your u still use them with 3mm shafts?

If so, is a shim needed and what material?

Thanks

I'd advise against interchanging 3mm and 1/8" especially for hubs. You can certainly open a 3mm to hole 1/8", I'd recommend using a reamer so its a nice precise fit. Slop in the shaft/hub area is a recipe for wheels coming loose.
