As I mess around with inline skates probably as much, maybe more, than old bikes, I'm converting a pair of ice hockey skates, to inline hockey skates.
These are they:-
The lower inline skates were a bit small and tight across the ball of my foot, so bought some Bauer Ice Hockey skates on t'ebay, to serve as donor boots to put on the frame from the Bauer inline hockey skates.
After some power-tool and brute force action, both sets of boots and various frames are now separated:-
But the rivet / bolt (not sure whether I'm going to reattach with rivets or bolts, yet...) holes from the inline frame don't really line-up with the rivet holes from the ice runner.
So what I wondered - as some of the new holes, would ideally be fairly close to the existing ones, is whether I could fill the holes with some kind of glue / epoxy (I dunno?) that when cured would be just as robust as the rest of the plastic base, that I could drill new holes wherever suited for ideal mounting of the inline frame:-
Is that possible, and if so what would be something good to use?
Replacing this plastic floor / base, isn't really possible, DIY, 'cos I doubt you can buy them, so you'd have to fabricate it, and by the time you'd ripped of the existing one, getting a new one to bond, is never going to be anything like as good as it is when they make up the boot.
