Appreciate the opportunity to help out. My observations, hmmm. These soft wheels definitely were a challenge. I ended up with a blade ground to a knife like edge to make a clean cut. I could not take the full thickness I was removing at one shot. Ended up working well, though. I also had good luck using an air pressured mister with a little water spraying at blade as it cut. Will try to get a pic up this weekend showing an original and cut wheel.

I posted this wheel narrower cutting tool PIC a long while back on the forum.
Search engine is your friend. You do not need a mister.
A small brush dipped in soapy H2O is all you need.

My tool ended up similar to that. I may modify it a tad before using again, but it worked well. The mister may not have been needed, but method of application is not as important as getting it in there. It kept my hands free and 'forced' it into the cutting area very well. It will be my method of choice

Default They're back!

Wheels arrived today, and I have to say that "okcskater" did what appears to be an awesome job! Can't know for sure until they're mounted and bearing weight, but it looks like the wheel is now stronger if anything. We'll see.

I'm hoping he posts pics of the work "in progress" on these wheels.

I won't be posting any more pics of these wheels other than the two stock photos below (at full skateboard width) because I'll likely start a new thread with plenty of pics when the complete build is done. The color theme for the build is light pink and baby-blue/teal, so I got the wheels that most closely matched.

Here's the one Sunset is calling "Aqua":




and here is their "Pink" iteration:



I'm looking forward to completing the build and will post a link here to the new thread.

Top is original, bottom is cut



Set up. Made an arbor and a 'long bearing' center. Going to modify this in the future as well, but it worked great. Not shown is the mister set up. Was able to do these at work. Will be setting up my lathe at home for future opportunities.
