Question for Beer Hunter
Beer Hunter wrote :
"I cut the phenolic base plates with a jigsaw to fit around the perimeter of the truck mounts. The plates do have some flex to them, but once the grinders are mounted on the kingpins all that extra slop disappears. The end result is a skate that turns well, has stability at speed, and holds a rail very easily."
My question :
I looked around online a bit for the product you used for your skate plates. Is it Whale Tufnol?? Also, did you ever weigh your plates before assembling your trucks and other parts onto them??
