Default Finally tried lathe style retreading

Made a cutting tool and practiced before cutting my White Shamans

Accent, what accent? Lol. Yep about .30 (.60 total). I found if I go too light I take a chance on ruining the cut completely and having to go deeper anyway. And they are my year and a half old Shamans, didn't want to mess up the cut. The worse wheel I had was slightly tapered and almost didn't start right. I practiced on a bunch of old wheels, junk stuff.

LOL, you turned your Shamans to re establish the grooves.
I turned mine to get rid of them!
To me grooved wheels skate like they are greased.
My Varsity + wheels I had to turn them, they were "as cast" and were not flat across the wheel in the least.

So far what I have found with the Shamans is.... on a decent floor its still a trade off. With grooves, faster grip on contact (fatter patch), slightly slower. Without tread may not bite initially, but will roll better. Somewhat sketchy on parts of the floor, may break away without notice. With my skates and style, tread works better for me.
Suspensions and tuning plays a part. I dont know your tune, but my suspension is soft at and angle and snug straght up. When you put you wheels down, you might touch the floor harder than I do... don't really know. Too many variables. Jmo

Default Broke them in again

Today. About an hour and hooked up solid at speed. Back to running down the locals... had blast today. Actually it was bigtime traffic due to parties. Probably helped the break in better. Finally got a chance to put in a couple of good laps.... freakin awesome! Nothing like the air wistleing in your ears at speed!

Cut mine to 32tpi
