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.

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.
