You can then sand and smooth the edges to a polished finish, will look much better then plywood, if done right it will look like it is suposed to be there.

If you have a flush trim bit and a router table you can use the plate as the template and make a perfect spacer in about 2 minutes, that is what I would do
Thanks, I'll consider that. But ply is virtually the same color as the sole of the boot. It might not show. However I'll look around to see what's best.

Either that or I sell the plates on Ebay and go for something else

Right now I might agree with you!

Most derby skaters today have whatever DA10 plates came with their package skates. Generally they have the stiffest imaginable cushions, to boot.

Couldn't agree more. The first thing I tell the girls in my league to do is change to softer cushions.
