Skateboard Wheels - Page 2

post #11 of 31
something to consider, skateboard wheels spin a lot more freely than type type of wheels normally found on something that normally wouldn't move much, might want to make sure something is in place so that your case isn't going to go for a ride if it gets bumped a little too hard

Just take off the trucks, paint them...(tape off the part where the bearings sit) and pop the wheels back on. If you don't want it to lean you may have to tighten the middle bolt cause that's what controls how tight or loose the steering is...
Lol, give it lots of lean, so you can do tricks with your PC!

Looks a bit like this:

Surely I could just nick the struts off it, spray them a colour of my choice, replace the wheels (their a bit bashed) and then use them as wheels for my case?

I'd imagine they'd be more than strong enough...
you should take the trucks, and wheels off, then bolt them to the underside of your case so you can roll it around!
then put some awesome stickers, and graphics on it!

Ok, get the wheels spinning some way and apply some sand paper to the wheels and evenly sand down to make a round / smooth wheel.
I wouldn't advise painting as it will flake off.

Easiest and best bet is to buy an el cheapo from Argos etc for £10 and nab the wheels off that.

Also the trucks will need bolting to the bottom of your case, and as people have said the washer / rubber will need changing in the trucks. If the case is unbalanced i.e: Mobo etc on the right the trucks will lean therefore making your pc sit at an angle.
Go to a skate shop of make your own stiffner rubber things (I done an indepth anlysis of the skateboard and still cant remember the name)

Anyways if you want any more help just post etc, also if you want a copy of my project email me.

OK, sounds good.

Just found this:

http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.200-2999.aspx

Got the right colour wheels, is there a standard wheel size, i.e. will they definitely fit?

And I've got plenty of washers, don't worry, I'll have a fiddle when needbe

Technically they should all fit onto an 8mm diameter shaft, with the aid of bearings.

Bearing production is pretty cheap now adays so im guessing these will all fit, if not just rip the trucks of the board and use them.

lol at washers, its bearings and grease man.
