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 clearance idea.

Another thread was talking about wheel bite. A thought here as I begin my build. I am using my old Sure Grip plates, and the truck mount is riveted to the plate. Wouldn't it just be possible to put a spacer under the truck mount and re-rivet? That would give the clearance between the wheel and the mounting hardware like is needed, I would think. I do plan still on using the t-nuts, but just thinking.

Cool Certainly would work.

However, I would not rivet the hangers back to the plates. I would # 8 stainless screws through the hangers, spacer, plate, and tee nut the whole shebang straight to the boot.

Sure Grip hangers are cast so I would not recommend threading the holes in the hangers.

I have built a couple of pair of Snyder sk8s (forged hangers I threaded) mounted to Bonts using #8 stainless screws flat head screws, a similar technique. Works fine but I do NOT spend any time going beast mode on my sk8s either.

Have fun.

Good idea. For now, I picked up the t nuts to do for now. That will give the clearance I need currently. May look further into that if I go any bidder on the wheels, though.
