*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Ask DocSk8 (Expert Indoor Skate Building Advice) This forum is different then the other SkateLog forums in that it is not a discussion forum, but rather a place you can ask skate building expert Fred "DocSk8" Benjamin about building and repairing indoor speed, derby, and jamskate quad roller skates. Please start a new thread for each new question.

Default Bont quad racer size 7/39

Could you help with sizing for an ignite nts plate to my size 7/39 bond quad racer boot? I was thinking 155mm, based on my measurement from toe joint to inside anklebone, but bonts size cart says 165mm from size 7/39 thru 8.5/42.

I'd put the 155 on my 8 Bonts. (Actually had a 150mm prototype).. So 155 should be fine.

Actually, there is discussion all over the quad and derby forums with pix etc. It may take a bit of searching.

I have heard you say doc, not to find center with snyder tool.

While you could do that, I do not do it, nor do I recommend it, much to the chagrin of some of the members that think they have some sort of scientific lock on the "proper" alignment.. The proper alignment is the one that works. I have tried the Snyder tool alignment several times on forward mounts. Like hitting ones self in the head, It felt great when I stopped.. In other words, it did not work for me...Good reason for me not to do it as far as I am concerned.


Is there a how to link,

Not exactly., but as I said, there is lots of info out there..

or should I just send them to you for expert mounting and call er done?
That is a viable option. I am just a PM away.

Ok doc, I will keep searching. The new plates won't be here for 2 weeks or so, therefore I have plenty of time to gain knowledge/courage for mounting these. Thanks again

Personally I wouldn't (and didn't) do a Bont for my first self-mounted skates. Their soles are IMO trickier than traditionally-soled boots.
In fact, even though I've put together a few skates (w/Riedell and Luigino boots) in the last few months, I'd still outsource Bonts.

I find it easier to do a mount on a Bont than on a Riedell. But that's me. If you're unsure it would be best to outsource to Doc or dvw.
