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.

He's home now and on the mend so I'll bring it up next time we speak if he's up to it.
That would be appreciated. I hope he makes a speedy recovery

He's doing well thanks. He seems to be on the mend now. I sent him an email with the picture attached and I heard back from him this morning.
It is a Sure Grip Australia product and it was designed personally by my stepfather (I imagine to provide a locally made alternative to Boens but don't quote me on that). The pivot cups are steel. I have no other details.

Interesting.. At some point maybe he can provide us a few more details?? Steel pivot cups and Sure Grip = an adjustable pivot pin as far as I know. Note, I said as far as I know. There may be some cases of ancient history I am not aware of.

Thanks much for checking.

Upon re-reading his reply he states "it has steel pivots the same as the Sure Grip Classic". I had specifically asked about the pivot cups but I guess on reflection the answer could be a bit ambiguous. I'll ask him a bit more at a later date. Now's not the best of times! But at least we solved part of the mystery

By all means, let the man heal. I do hope he can be of further assistance about these and other thing Aussie when he is better. I am never pleased when I have to fall back to the DUH! potion..
