    Default Has anyone done an Ice to Inline Conversion {DYI}

    I have an older pair of ice skates I want to convert to roller. I have the frames and a great step by step guide. Id rather do it myself or w/ the help of someone that's done it before so it goes smoothly. I know I can go to Jake but it's something I just want to do. If anyone has experience or a better workshop than I have I'd love your help.

    TIA

    Didn't do it myself, but make sure you line up the frames properly (and that they are the proper size to begin with.) Shops are not immune from misaligning them. Good luck, and post a pic when you're done!

    I put these together a long time ago. The roller frames & wheels were endorsed by Ralph Backstom (who played for the Kings back in the day) & I riveted them onto some old Bauer boots that had broken blades. This was before "roller blades" had come out.

    Jake, way awesome!

    One of my brothers still has his original roller blades on an ice skate boot conversion the are black and adjustable for different size skates. People are always trying to buy them from him.
