I have my Borealis and for a while I've had moments where the axel would be stuck in the axel seat. It would play just fine and eventually through play it would loosen up. But now the axel started chipping away and now it's too stubborn. I can't twist it. I've tried gently using pliers but nothing.
Yikes, sorry to hear about that! Could be wear and tear from use or just gunk in the axle well. Not sure what you mean by "chipping away", but if metal is coming off then it's not coming off the axle, it's coming off the threading inside the axle well...which is probably what's making the axle stick. Try and get that axle out and the clean out your axle well with compressed air. -Steve
