Hello everyone, I'm looking for one of the new skate assembles. Would someone have one they may want to sell. Please let me know.

Thanks
Mike

Is anyone selling pre-cut/bent plates for these?

Hello Mike,

I just recieved my skate kit (THANK YOU!

Can you tell me which grinder the holes are setup for? Is it the Bosch 1375A?

I have to buy a grinder for this anyway... so I figure I might as well buy the grinder you designed the skate for.

Thank you

Charles

Not sure about the bosch, but I have a dewalt that fit the hole pattern. Not sure of the model number but could get it for you tonight if need be. I just brought my plate to the store and checked it before I bought it.

I have to modify the mounting holes to fit my Skill. What I did was enlarge the slots with a grinder fitted with the 1mm cutting disc.

I think I found a Ryobi grinder at HD last night that is a drop in fit.

I have to buy some longer mounting screws... but other tahn that it looks "all go"

If it fits without modification I will post it tonight. The only downside is that it is a 4.5amp grinder and for this kind of work I would really rather see a 7 amp grinder doing the work.

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone whose ideas and work made this skate possible and to Mike who took the timre to produce it. Trying to design and build one of these skates would have been more trouble that it was worth for a single project. The skate turns this into a cool learning exercise!

The Ryobi at HD will fit. You will need to purchase longer metric fasteners and little nylon spacers to make it work. The head on the Ryobi is slightly tapered and the 4 spacers make it seat properly to the skate.

The spacers need to be about 3/16 or 1/4 long plus about a 3/4"-1" long fasteners, I can't remember the actual length.

Darn, too late. My grinder was the Dewalt DW818 if it helps anyone else out.

Does one of the HF grinders work? Has anyone used them? I have the makita stated above and didn't want to modify the skate unless I have to, easier to get a cheapo HF while I'm there.

Tom, IIRC one of the HF grinders did work, but it was underpowered for the job. After I burned it up, I switched to a Milwaukee (for more than twice the price) that not only finished the job, but is still going strong to this day. If I had to do it again, I wouldn't bother with the HF; the performance of the grinder maps directly to how much time you have to spend.

The old pay once for quality tools, or keep paying with cheap ones.

I have a Makita I've been using for years, it has enough power to work. The skate will take a little modification but no big deal.

Ok, have the bent parts for the grinding fixture but can't find a BOM for it.
What size adjusters, bolts, and nuts are needed?
The bom.xls @ http://www.dmoore.com/mechmate/bom.xls is gone...
