*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***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

Doc,
I know you must have notes. Have you put together an interchange manual on trucks fitting/swapping from plate to plate? Also what is the difference between and Eagle and Eagle plus plate? The trucks only? Looking to build a setup for my daughter in law. Myself, I would have put her on DA lasers(very tune-able) but she doesn't want to buy that expensive of a plate.

UH, notes?? Most of it is in my head and I really have not just randomly swapped stuff if it did not look interesting. On top of that almost every thing required more than just swapping the trucks.... Cushions, king pins lock nuts and what have you. Mostly focused on DA45 type stuff. Something in particular you are considering??


Also what is the difference between and Eagle and Eagle plus plate? The trucks only?



Far as I know the only difference between the regular and the + plates is the adjustable pivot on the + trucks. The Eagle is discontinued however.

What kind of wheel base are you looking for. I have ~ 80 feet of plates hanging in the shop.

They will be coming over this weekend I think. So I'll be able to get an idea of what she wants and plate length she needs. My self, I would put her on a plastic Da45.. No substitute for tune-ability.

Cannot argue that. Too bad SG was so sloppy locating the pivot cup on the Skins. The are out there almost for free but need to have the pivot cup filloed and properly located to change them to DA45.

When I was much younger I had some Skins. Broke the plate in half one day.
Actually been thinking of machining a pair of plates from delrin...lots of effort and time though.
