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. Please start a new thread for each new question.

Default Let me see if I've got this straight

Plate sizing is based, NOT on boot size, but on axel to axel placement? I measure from the start of the "gap" between my 2nd and 3rd/ middle toe and measure to center of outer ankle bone? I'm suffering from data overload...
Thanks for any help. I just do session skating with a little shuffling.

I have been doing this too long to even measure any more. I have a really good idea where a plate should be on any given boot once I know where the persons foot actually fits in the boot.

I answered your PM using what I know. That should point you in the right direction.
