I would actually love to try a pair, would laser trucks work? What do you think you would charge for a pair?

I don't know that lasers would fit this plate. I have never made any for sale. Very time consuming making a plate. I did not know till I made this set how much time it would take to make a set. These plates only fit 195mm mount boots. One of my other plates came loose on the mill and was damaged, it was for 165mm boots. I have no extras at this time.

well still cool, I was thinking about having a friend with a cnc do one for me but he's always busy (plus he is making me a wheel regroover setup for my lathe).

Have you got to skate on them yet! thats the most important thing.

It takes time to blueprint skate plates. To do this it takes a goal in mind to make it worth while. Like going to a better alloy, needing a special length, needing a special mounting scenario. Something like that, because it is very time consuming. Anyone on here that does this has considerable time in a pair of plates if it is done by manual machine. Making the blueprints up first then transferring that information into metal takes lots of time and skill. And still a lot of time in programming if CNC. In my case I made fixtures to hold the plates in position too.
A person can modify plates in most cases to do what they want to. But my plates are different than others in several ways. Not saying they are better than anyone else's plates, they do as I wish them to do, to my spec. Lightening more and cosmetics are secondary right now. I want to keep fine tuning these for now, then I'll get around to sharpening them up later.
Oh yes, Three sessions so far. About 10 hours on them now. They were slightly rough at first but tuned in pretty quickly. The cushion setup is not standard so the dimensions were already machined into the plates for my initial setup(pre-shim) making tuning just a matter of dialing in the cushions. I had installed yellow cones, but changed the front two cones(touching the trucks) to purples because I had been off skates for a while due to a broken bone in my foot. This weekend I'm now loosened up enough to go back to the yellows. Been running Green Shamans and just ordered White Shamans to pick up the pace a bit next weekend. Going from a 93a to a 97a wheel. I'm wasting the traction with the greens as the floor is very sticky right now. So waiting for my new wheels to come in. I really wanted Scotts but with several projects going on right now, that is out of the question....
They skate very nicely. Good precise handling.
Soon I'll have another seasoned skater sz 12 give them a go to see what they think about this type of suspension setup. Might be going to Atlanta soon and have a meet up there with some SLF members. We'll see..

They have been a long term project. I started with Invaders as a test mule skate and began machining on them, then moved to a White Magnum and transferred dimensions to them from the Invaders. I could not get the length I wanted in Magnums(magnesium plate). The next step after working on these was to make some up in my length and since I was coming back from inlines, made to be attached to inline boots. I had already adapted the White Magnums to Powerslide inline boots. Next step was to make all this in an inline mount dedicated plate with all my dimensions included. So these are the result of all this. They would not be everyone's choice I don't think but soon I'll have some input from a couple of other skaters to see what they think. They are pretty though...

Thats what draws me to them, very Laser-ish but in metal, I like

I am new to machining, ironically out of necessity needing new SA cushions so I really appreciate the work that goes into this. I cant wait to get to that level and even would love my own mill!

They are very good looking, and between anodizing and hydrodipping they could look like anything you wanted, but raw metal is just BADA**!

It is so easy to get spoiled on Digital Readout rigs. I was! Had to step back a bit and regroup. It is tedious to count and read. Mine are all manual machines. Very basic hobby sized machines. It is as addicting as skates are. You want to try this and that after a while and tooling costs money...

Default update

Plates are working good. No issues with mounting coming loose or breaking the sole of the boots. Finally getting back up to speed on my skating after being off for 12 weeks. Began to feel like my push wasn't strong enough, no getting enough speed from it at the end of each stroke. Not enough resistance. Any way I wanted to get more force in the push out of the plates, but did not want to affect turn radius if it was possible so I shimmed the front trucks only. Got more resistance in the push but radius had very little change. Found one coned bushing disintegrating on tear down and replaced it. All is good now. Now I'll see if I can find more to tune on these.. LOL

Edit: Got some good time in today on the plates. Floor cleared out a bit and I got to finally put in a bit of speed. No shakes, no slop just smooth controlled carving and turns. Still unpredictable moving obstacles on the floor so I only got a few fast laps in. It was fun. Knee is starting to give me some feedback again. Last doctor told me it was nothing, a little time off would take care of it.... yea right. Time to change doctors...

Default 2 good weekends

On these skates. So I ordered the Monzas today. Hope to get them hooking up Sunday. Had the best traction at one of the rinks ever, enough to run the white Shamans on a floor they never had a chance on before. So push the isdue a bit more!
