*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Default Has anyone welded a Broken Arius Plate?

Hi,

Just looking for some advice or experiences from anyone who has tried to fix their Arius after it failed in the common place at the toe.

It failed just out of warranty so I'm struggling to have it replaced and desperately need a working plate for the weekend.

Thank you

Is it in 2 pieces?

I havent done it, but you COULD try to cut/dremel out the break line a little. Apply JB weld and bend it back flat. Once cured, sand down the areas, to bare aluminum, and jb weld the crap out of the area where it needs reinforcement. Just be careful where your applying it so it wont interfere with the plates normal functions.

Not quite, just bent and torn at the usual place between the toe and the truck.

Thanks for the advice though!

It's not an option they have given me, just a discount on the Platinums where the known problem has allegedly been fixed.

For anyone interested here's the result

Before




After
