I glue my wheels onto the axles using Gorilla glue. After gluing them on I place the model in this vise to keep them aligned while the glue dries. The glue sets up in 30-60 minutes. However, I was having a little problem with a few wheels sticking to the frame. I solved this issue by just running the motor for a few seconds every 10 minutes or so until the glue dries.

Hello Joe,
I let my gears with 0.6mm bore finished, so the wheels can be firmly pressed in without glue.
Kind regards
