hi, iv recently built the lil mixer and the lil yeller, these came with metal axles that did not fit in the hubs, they also were not long enough. what i did was to cut them in half, heat them, insert them into each hub , dip them in glue and slide them into the axle sleeve assembly. am i missing something here? ) is there an easier way im supposed to do this? do the people who make these know the axles dont fit? surely they must, right?

You also could have used brass rod cut to the correct length.
