old school axle/dropout question

i normally dont start threads like this and im sure its a stupid question, but its before my time so im curious.

a normal axle wont fit in here, so anything short of a slotted axle or using a hammer, how do you put a 3/8 axle wheel on this style drop out? lol please forgive my ignorance

No choice but a slotted axle Mike.

There are axles that are not round but flat on 2 "sides" that fit into this type of dropout. More mid to new school I believe.

Axle w/u removable bolts ....like Philwood


Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.

Slotted axle, if you are careful you can flatten them yourself using a dremel/grinder
