Alright so my axles stripped on one side and I can't get my bolts on
Empire doesn't carry a WTP supreme axle anymore so what options do I have?
Would a machine shop be able to rethread it? Or should I just buy another wheel/hub?

yeah but then it would become a smaller size thread, which would require a smaller bolt correct?

with the cost of a machine shop it would be cheaper to get a new hub. Is the axle a hollow? Is the front or the back?

they could run a die back over the threads to get them cleaned out if there not really bad and if they can get the die on straight. I think the machine shop down by my house was charging $40 bucks an hour

If they drill and tap it you would need a larger bolt actually.

Contact Seattle Bike Supply or a local shop that deals with them and see if they can help you.

Think I should just bring it to a machine shop? Do a majority do it? And how much would it cost, estimate. I want to go ride the public dirt jumps in Seattle this weekend so maybe fixing it will be worth it.
