How to make rollers on skateboards into wheels on roller skates?

High-quality Wear-resistant Rollers

In China, there are very few double-row skating wheels to choose from, and even fewer outdoor double-row skating wheels; skateboard (longboard) wheels designed with similar specifications are of various types and different colors. However, when buying skateboard (longboard) wheels, it is basically impossible to use them directly on common double-row roller skates, except for a very small number of skateboard (longboard) wheels with offset shafts.

So, what kind of skateboard (longboard) wheels can be used directly? Check out the picture below!

We can clearly see that the shaft core on which the bearing is installed is obviously centered, not flush with the inner surface. If the wheels of this type of skateboard (longboard) are directly installed on the double row skates, the tripod will be stuck, making it unusable. Therefore, to solve this problem, we must first cut the inner surface to offset the shaft core.

At present, there are two main ways to cut the wheel, one is to use a mechanical lathe or CNC lathe to cut the wheel; the other is to use a hacksaw to manually cut the wheel.

It is difficult for ordinary people to own mechanical lathes or CNC lathes, so I will not introduce them here.


If you use a hacksaw to manually cut the wheel, generally draw a circle around the wide surface at 1cm-1.5cm on the inner surface of the wheel, and then use the hacksaw to cut the wheel along the position of the circle. This cutting method requires patience and strong hands-on ability to cut the wheels flat.
