The guy on post number 6, he don't know much about skates but he knows a lot about shafts and mountings. He should stick to what he knows.

I build my own plates, test them, and skate them. Never had a plate break, never broken a kingpin(grade 8 steel). Had my trucks modified for titanium flip axles(DA45s), thanks to Wild42. Low ramp up cushion setup for maximum traction. Also extra clearance and able to use wheels easily over 70mm for outdoor skating.

Bar on fixture to be milled.
[IMG]Finishing some tall cushion 45 plates. These were started last year and I just ran out of time. So shimming will be needed anyway to get the geometry corrected. These are a long frame for outdoor skating. by fierocious1, on Flickr[/IMG]

machined plates that mount to vented inline skate boots.

mounted complete plates with 3/4" cushions for nice ride and handling. plate has adjustable turn rates to slow down or speed up reaction.

skates I built when testing setups before I started making my own plates were using locktite as well. So no need to worry about loctite coming loose if it is used correctly.
