Smallframe forks

has anyone fitted the axle bearing set in a small frame fork?

I had some pressed in (frozen and heated forks) but now the axle won’t fit into the bearings!
We’re looking into the possibility of badly made forks - a couple of scootershops have had bad forks…

anyone got a cheap complete, smallframe fork for sale?

about to do this with my forks but can’t tell wether the stub axles bent or the bearing is just creating the illusion of a bent axle.

considering the upgrade to pkxl forks n disc, at the right price though
