    Shush, you.

    It's amazing how little the actual hanger width changes even though it looks like a ton of metal is coming off.

    After monkeying with a few trucks, I can tell you that Crails have the axles with the largest OD (tool won't fit over the axle all the way), and that Randals have required the most facing.

    do you think that might mess up the way the wheel sits on the hangars or can you just tighten it a little down more and it is the same. It seems like it would put your wheels closer to the baseplate of the truck and making your wheels less stabily placed

    If anything, it'll improve the wheel's fit, because the hanger face is now perpendicular to the axle. The amount of metal that's removed is maybe in the 0.01" range, so it's not going to mess up the geometry. Switching brands of speed rings/washers makes more of a differance than what I'm doing.

    Sweet.

    I want some faced hangars with ceramic builtins and rimz.

    That will be a tight and precise set up.

    I'm hoping you will be offering this as a service on trucks that you sell.

    Just don't tell the guys I race against, I need any edge I can get.

    I'll start offering it as an "upgrade" and an aftermarket service as well.

    For the time being, I won't be able to work on Crails, however (due to their comparatively larger axles).

    I faced GPymp's RT-S/X trucks, and they turned out nicely. It's snowing, so I can't tell you if I detect any difference with my newly-faced trucks, but I can say that the wheels bolt down more solidly.

    Faced hangers, anyone?

    How much would you charge if I shipped some hangers to you? Care to discuss via PM?

    How does $10/pair sound?

    Thus far, the only trucks I haven't been able to face have been Crails. All but maybe 25% of the trucks I tried had axles that were too large to fit inside the facing tool. This is probably a "good thing," as it means that the axle diameter is actually closer to that of the bearings' ID.

    What other trucks haven't been able to fit into it? Also, do you have a drill press and a wood hammer? Imagine that... faced hangers and straight axles right from the shop......

    So far, I've been able to face Core, Destructo, Orion, Randal, Tracker, and Holey. Haven't done any Seismics yet, but I will tomorrow.

    Maybe you should offer that as a value added sales technique on all new Holeys you sell this month.
