*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***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

Hi Doc, I have to mount plates on a leather Carrera boot, size 8 boot, size 7 sure grip avanti plate. I have a snyder mounting tool. Is the 3mm offset to the smaller toe side about normal for this/any mount. I know the front axle needs to be just in front of the ball of the foot a bit.
I also have an aerobiskate reidell boot size 11 that is leather but the sole seems like its spongy/not leather or normal sole material. It's very comfortable. I have a Crazy Venus plate for it, 283mm. I am taking off an aluminum plate that is riveted on and struggling with getting the rivets off. The old plate is crap so maybe I can just drill away and not sweat how I get the rivets off as long as I don't drill into the sole? I'm looking at the same offset 3mm to the small toe side for this one too. I read about the best way of getting the right spot for the offset is to find the spot between where the second and third toes are. Not sure how to do that very well. One is for my kid, size 8, one for me. We are recreational skates but want good equipment and we take lessons regularly. Improving constantly is the fun and the goal.
