Just got in some of the Straight Flex Wheel (2" OD x 1/2" WD, 1/2" Hex Bore, 60A). Trying to fit some Plastic 1/2" VersaHex Adapters v2 (1/4" Square Bore) but it’s basically impossible without some very scuff methods. Am I doing this wrong? Are there better inserts to use?
Flex Wheel Insert Question.. How in the world?
I’d recommend reading the Straight Flex Wheel (2" OD x 1/2" WD, 1/2" Hex Bore, 60A) product description.
I have pasted a portion of it below that you may find relevant. Emphasis mine.
The 1-5/8" and 2” diameter wheels have a 9mm hex, which is meant to be stretched on to a 1/2" hex shaft. The 3” and larger wheels have a 1” bore, which can be stretched over a VersaHub so they can be driven by a hex shaft, VersaPulley or plate sprocket. This also allows you to stretch these wheels over a VersaRoller tube to create a strong and lightweight roller.
