Yes, they actually work, and it does take some time if you have a good sized bur. I usually just rethread the axle occasionally needed or not, and it helps to avoid getting a bur in the first place..

The one with the size 5/16-24. That's the best for your axle.

I doubt you'll find it on the internet. I wasn't able to at least. Just go to a hardware store, look at the tap and dies, and get the 5/16-24 hex die.
