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 Snyder Imperial pivot pin replacement!

Doc, Do you know if the newer Snyder pivot pins have the same thread as the old pins with a 5/16 - 24 thread. Mine only have flat spots on the threaded area to adjust the pin and a nut to lock it down. The pivot pins I see for Snyder Skates have the hex on the pin and nut to lock it down. The thread in the photo's I see look to be course. Maybe just the photo. I don't want to order them without knowing the thread size. My Snyder Imperials are from about 1960. Really in good shape. The pivot cup I see should work fine with the 7/16" OD. Any help would be appreciated. Jim

As far as I am aware it has been the same since the beginning.

Yeah OG....

It's not.

Maybe just the photo.

Most likely.

I don't want to order them without knowing the thread size.

You do...

My Snyder Imperials are from about 1960.

Interesting. I was not aware they had been around that long.... But then again, I never dug into it.

Really in good shape.

Snyders will out last man kind if well cred for and not abused.

The pivot cup I see should work fine with the 7/16" OD.

Ya got me there... Pivot cups are not replaceable on hanger style Snyder plates. The cup is hardened steel and pressed in. The pivot pin is designed to wear out long before the cup.

Any help would be appreciated. Jim

So tell me about the pivot cup/s. If they have issues you should send the plate/s back to Snyder to get them fixed. I have yet to see a non factory repair that looked anywhere close to right.

Well, and I'll add to that, you can't buy the parts retail to do the job yourself for what it will cost to have Snyder do it. And they generally ship them back out same day. And yes, it's done right. That's been my experience, anyway.
