so, i read this in a magazine a while ago and wrote it down. i just wanted to share it with y'alls, cause it's bloody epic.


2 roller skate plates
8 mounting bolts and nutsdd
4 trucks
8 snyder cups
4 kingpins
8 wheels
8 axle nuts
2 5/16in or 5/8in toe stops, based on your plates
one pair of FLAT SOLED (thats very important, yo) shoes. (when choosing them, you might want to take the plate with you and make sure its flat against it)
** TOOLS **
rubber mallet
9/16in and 11/16in open end wrenches
hand drill and 3/8in bit
2"x4" platform to hold the shoe
flathead bit
power dyne tool with 1/2in and 9/16in sockets
15/16in wrench
snyder breaker bar

you can get this stuff online...yeah.


1. choose your shoes and plates. your shoes should be awesome (but if you want to be lame, they don't HAVE to be...) and flat soled. plate size should be chosen by the size of your shoe--they should be centered on the sole and not stick off the ends. MAKE SURE TO LINE UP THE PLATE ACCURATELY.

3. use a sharpie to mark the drilling locations on the soles, using holes in the plates as a guide. four holes must be on each shoe.

4. drill at all holes, your limit being 1" depth on the front and 1"-2" (based on your shoe) in the heels.

5. now that you've drilled the holes, put the snyder cups inside the shoe and insert the mounting bolts through them, one in each hole. put the plate on the bolts, tap it with a mallet to keep it in place.

6. tighten the bolts starting with the ones in the heel. break off the end of each bolt with the snyder break off thing.

7. mount the trucks. loosen the kingpin nut by a quarter turn, and then hand tighten it into the plate. once it is in place, put the kingpin nut in the base of the plate. using the 11/16th wrench, turn the nut once. then use the 9/16th wrench to tighten the kingpin in the plate.

8. place the wheels on the axles and position the axle nuts. with a drill and a 1/2" socket, tighten each axle nut firmly. then, back off the nut 1/8th of a turn. test the wheels to see if they spin freely.

9. inspect the skates and double check your work. put em on, lace em up, and try em out!

since i copied this kinda poorly and lost all my pictures, it may be in your best interest to watch this as well. i don't think its from the same magazine, but it follows the basic idea.

Imagine that you have a time machine. Which deceased musician would you most want to travel back in time to watch perform live?

Some ancient roman guy playing at some noble's dinner so i could be all "yo imma just be at cho dinner nao k" and they'd be all like "k" and we'd have delicious roman food and listen to music and have slaves and be crazy and badass.
