|: Sounds more complicated then the bolt idea. Threading is beyond me lol.
Most of the metal work done on my skates is also beyond me. I had it done by competent people. Next thing I want to have done is a new slider holder. I know a competent wood worker, but he takes his time. :-( I hope my skates hold up till he produces the goods!
: Well, one day when I have spare money or spare parts, I will toy with the idea of taking out the axel, putting in a bolt.
Surely you will keep us updated once you're there!
