Take a look at our pictures of our quality work of pinewood derby axle close up pictures.   They say it all!  100K axles are best used with oils such as krytox or nyoil.  Can be used with graphite if you have no intentions of doing a graphite break-in process.  If you are just dusting and racing, then this level of polish will give you best results.

Derby Dust has mastered the 100K  OPTICAL POLISH!  We have been setting track records time after time    Polishing is done via CNC controlled spindles and polishing wheels to ensure that each axle has the same polishing pressure, stroke length, time on wheel to ensure a consistent quality product every single time.  Polishing time is roughly 5 minutes per axle.

Our prepped have been deburred, shaped, straightened and sanded down to a 2000 grit finish. From that point, each axle goes through a buffing process up to 100,000 grit OPTICAL FINISH!  We use separate buffing wheels to ensure no cross contamination. Then we seal the prepped axle with a sealing agent that uses the PTFE Krytox.  We seal the surface to prevent rust and dry coats it with a white layer of Krytox.   This metal sealing agent that has one of the most friction less substances known to pinewood derby racing.

With speeds of 15+ fps on the last 10 feet of the track.  WITH OUR GRAPHITE DRY LUBENo reason you can’t do the same.

Axles are wrapped in rust resistant paper to ship to ensure that your axles are not scratched up during shipping process.
