*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

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

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 Aluminium support inside boot

Hi Doc,

I'm looking at mounting a pair of vans skate shoes, but the sole is very thin/flexible rubber, so i'm thinking of using a 1.2mm thick piece of aluminium cut to the shape of the innersole. I just wanted to ask your advice and see if you had any other ideas on what i could do. At the moment i'm just trialling countersinking a normal countersunk bolt into it, but by the time you countersink it so it's flush you're not left with much meat and i'm worried this would be almost as likely to pull through as the rubber sole.

I've spent a bit of time searching but can't seem to find any information on anyone doing this, so maybe it's not the greatest idea? heaps of people seem to glue carbon fibre to the bottom of the shoe but that isn't going to help stop the bolts from pulling through.

I want to go skating, I don't care about nothing.
