Benj sent in this question:

“I want to alter the wheel gauge on my O-Scale 2-track truck. The wheels are actually too close together. Do any of your blog people know what to do?”

    Not enough info Benj.

  • SteveBsays:

    need more information such as; how far do you need to move them?; is there any of the axel sticking beyond the wheel?; are they metal or plastic? In general I have been able to spread metal wheels using “waterpump/slip joint” pliers by placing the head between the wheels and opening the jaws. There are also some small clamps that can be reversed and used as spreaders.
