    Why would they warranty something you screwed up?
    I doubt theyll warranty anything that has been ignorantly destroyed.
    Buy the proper tools. Theyll save you time and money in the end.

    For user error? I think not.

    You can always go back to the LBS and see what they have to say.

    I very seriously doubt that. Well, I might believe you if the hub was made out of jell-o.
