    Campy axles are 26 tpi. Shimano, Suntour, Suzue, and pretty much the rest of the Japanese axles are 10 mm x 1 mm threaded on the rear, 9 mm x 1 mm on the front. The cheap Suzue's are an exception with a 3/8 or 5/16 inch diameter and 26 tpi gauge.

    These are already 120 mm spacing, right, so what were you spacing them out to? There isn't a lot of extra axle length on Dura Ace axles, so if you are having problems you might have to go to a Bicycle Research replacement axle, which can come in a variety of different lengths and is quite high quality. The cost is about $12-15 depending on your shop. Some people riding bikes with very fat stay ends sometimes have troubles with insufficient axle length (Raleigh's come to mind).

    Well i used to got a track frame and its damaged and i transfer all the parts to a 126mm spacing road frame, unfortunately as u said the dropout is really fat. Soo only half of the bolt is screwed on. I am worry bout my safety so i need to find a longer axle.

    Its a steeel frame sooo i guess i could respace the dropout by benting.

    I'd definitely respace the frame. You can always return it to 126 if you want to at a later time.

    And don't ride an axle with only half the bolt threaded. I've watched a couple riders crash badly at the track when they were riding bikes that way. It's really not safe.

    If you still need axle length, those Bicycle Research replacement axles are really good and cheap, and well worth the small expenditure.
