Depends in what you prefer, high or low concave! I prefer with no doubt the low shape! Really good, it was one of the best decks i ever had! very happy

both are amazing, i have used both. I personally prefer the regular just because I'm used to some concave and it over all has more of a feel. The lows are good also though if you like low concave decks that are more flat. Ive found it easier to use the regular because of the concave but maybe that is because my fingers have always been used to the concave!

I have seen a few items on Ebay Uk and was wondering if anyone could give me a rough estimate on how much they are worth, thank you. As i am a new member i cannot provide the links however i am sure they will be easy to find. Berlinwood wide old shape with Flatface wheels, wide tech deck trucks. The bottom ply is yellow and it has a red and green on either end. Also a berlinwood Oldschool, its one of the older ones and the bottom ply looks real nice it's a yellow/orange to a kind of purple fade. I am not sure if you can search by user but if so the user is called rebecnun. Thanks.

that is an old mold berlinwood, that shape/deck hasn't been made in years. Its going to be pretty skinny compared to most decks nowadays. the price is good though!

I know right? 32mm or less are almost unusable for me now.

The new Blackriver Trucks have slightly longer screws, does anyone know if you can get these separately? Can only see the original screw lengths available as 'first aid'

@Uncle Brigamini -

To get a stuck wheel off of a BRT Truck simply get 2 Tech Deck tools, put one on each end of the axle, let one just idle and use the other to use as if you're taking off the locnut (This reduces the factor of the axle slipping) - If the locnut is already off of the axle - Pull the wheel gently off the axle (it'll start to pull the axle as well, so grab a pair of needle nose pliers or put the truck in a clamp) doing so will eliminate the factor of the axle being stripped, once you've got the truck in a tight vacant spot, you can easily pull the wheel off. I've done it numerous times - BRT's are known for that issue.

Go to www . builddirect. com // you can order free samples of granite and use it to make benches, add to your current park setup, etc.. Free shipping as well; Shipping takes about 3-4 days and sometimes they even offer free overnight

- that being said if you're wanting it asap, go to Home Depot or some hardware store that sells granite tiles, countertops, etc.. they have a bunch of old or torn up pieces in the back I'm sure, and I think they will sell it for a decent price..

I believe the technique you need to research is 'pressure dying'. I've just recently started making my own decks too!

Here is a description of the process. Not sure how you would make a pressure chamber, but I'm sure it's do-able.

they are smaller than cults but the shape is very different so it would be hard to compare.
