    yeah, what 165 said. i just got the paul hubs, which are very similar to the phils. they have the allen bolts and i was suprised how tight i could get them. i just got them on the bike this past weekend, but so far i haven't had any slippage.

    If it's too tight, it's hard to get it off

    I actually had problems with Phil's slipping because of my chrome dropouts. I kept stripping the heads from torquing down as hard as I could. They told me they had a new product called "chrome domes" which would solve my problem which they sent.
    These suckers create a much larger grabbing surface than any other hub out there. They act as a large washer which distributes the tension evenly. Call Phil's up and upgrade if you have any sort of slippage with the Phils.

    around $20 or something like that. They come with heavier replacement bolts. Call Phils directly and ask.

    You can get them tight enough, but they will eventually slip ever so slightly. I get annoyed by that so I use a tensioner to keep it slack-free (also makes it a lot easier to center when tightening because it doesn't grab and lurch forward).

    As for the skewers - it's not an easy process, check this thread for more info: Locking Skewers for Track Bike?
