Default Ice-to-Inline pt. 2

I'm getting my ice blades off today, so now I just need to locate some frames and a machine to mount them!

So:
-Does anyone know if a certain roller-blade frame will have the same mount holes as a Lake Placid boot? That would make my life a lot easier.
-What kind of sports-store chains have frame-mounting machines?
-What are the best (though not necessarily the most expensive - poor college kid here) wheels and bearings (and frames, if none fit the Lake Placid mount holes) for artistic skating?
-Where can I find Snow White frames or rockered frames for less than $200?
-How do I mount a pick/stopper on ice skate boots?

Thanks a ton, everyone!

EDIT: Do the Triax and Snow-White frames hinder any extra movement you might have with a frame that has the stop in a higher position?

You'll be hard pressed finding a frame with the same mounting holes as an ice blade sorry to say. But its pretty easy to re drill.

Mounting machines?? That's pretty hard core, you're better off just lining up the holes and drilling freehand and mounting. Inline frames can be screwed on in place, just like an ice blade, with ease.

There are several topics listed here regarding this.. have a quick scroll through.

I'm not too sure as where in the US you can buy them. Arthur Lee often replies here, so I am sure he will provide some info. As for being under $200, thats a hard one.

Umm, the stopper is already assembled/attached to the frame. As you mount the frame, the toe will be in place, just as in the pic on an ice blade. If the toe rubber needs replacing, u just have to loosen the allankey and remove the toe stopper and replace it.

Not sure what you mean re the 'stop in a higher position'??? You can adjust the stop to any position you prefer, unlike an ice blade. That is one benefit of having a toe stopper (ugly as they may be!!)..

Hope this sort of helps...

Here are a few topics posted previously that may be of interest:

Thanks for helping me be lazy You pretty much covered what I mean about the toe stop - sorry about the vague wording. Thanks for your input.

P.S., as for the mounting machine, my boss mentioned that that was pretty much the only way to mount anything, at least now I know I can make a power drill into a "mounting machine".

for sure.. just remove the ice blade... take the inline frame, line it up on the boot, mark it with a pen if you need to. remove the frame, drill one of the holes at the front and the back, then add the frame, insert a screw at each end to secure it loosely, then drill the remaining holes to ensure you have an exact match. Then add the other screws and tighten them all up..
