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

Default Fixed mount vs adjustable ones?

I prefer fixed ones, too bad adjustment is less precise...
With fixed mounts i have less loose bolts and maybe placebo effect better energy strike.....

I prefer the sliding mounts myself. Easier to make them work with wedges and I never run out of range.

I too prefer the sliding mounts. If you get them tight enough, they should be no more likely to loosen or shift than the fixed mounts. The captive nut is generally steel & replacable, so no worrying about stripping the aluminum threads in fixed mounts.

If I understand your boots are Luigino, these would be the ones: https://atomskates.com/collections/a...unting-nut-6mm

Thanks friend, Luigino bolts are low quality there not tight tolerance. So very loose fits.
Anyone other suggestion for better nuts?

These generic ones may work:

That type of "female thread with a base that fits in a slot" is called a tee-nut or weld nut. If you can extract the one from your boot and measure it, you may be able find an equivalent from an industrial parts supplier. E.g. this one has a base that is probably too big: https://www.mcmaster.com/90594a330
