*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***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 Remove Avenger Toe Stop?

Hi Doc, I have a friend that wants his toe stop area of his Avenger plate milled-off. He said they are white plates which I believe are aluminum, and he would like the front to look like the back. Ever do anything like this or hear of anybody having this done to their Avengers? Thanks.

Default I have one.

Wes Wild did mine. Note the white Avenger is magnesium. We started with a raw plate, no machining.

Hmm, I can't view the link, I get this message: The address is not valid. Does Wes have a business doing this type of work and is there a number he can be reached at?

Is this the link from Wild42 http://www.skatelogforum.com/forums/...ger#post672447

Default Try it again.

The link in your post works fine for me.

Does he do this kind of stuff?? Yes. Hope you are not in a hurry. The SEDS heads (me included) are all over him.

Not even close. Way too many other adventures @ the moment.

There are a bunch of B's in brackets before and after the address. If you delete them, it works fine.

Thanks for pointing that out. I was in a hurry. It's fixed now, I think. HTML is not one of my better programming languages.
