    I got a small damage on my hub´s thread, on an interior axle, it is very slight, most of the thread
    is OK. Is it possible to fix or do I have to buy a new part? It is made in aluminium.

    If you have access to a Tap and Die set you can re-cut/clean-up the bad thread, or better yet take it to a tooling/machinist shop and see if they can do the job for you.

    Err, where? This isn't making a lot of sense; maybe the caffiene level is still too low.

    Chase the threads carefully with an appropriate tap and don't worry about it. If the thread is one
    for which no tap is available, you may have a bit of a challenge ahead of you.

    On the axle that holds the body.

    The problem is I can´t join the hub with the damage. Will try som experienced shop mechanic
    tomorrow, if it does not work I have not choice but to buy a new piece.

    My LBS did it for a charge of 14 USD well worth the money considering that it is a pretty good hub.
