Build a Skate Rail in 30 Minutes!!

  • Skate Rail in 30 Minutes!!
    It really did only take me about 30 minutes to weld this thing up!
    This rail requires some welding and metal working skills, but they are basic! All you really need is a stick welder and a grinder to build this.
    The materials were all steel. Tube was 3"x7' long legs were 10" tall from 2"x 3" square stock, and the base is 3/8" thick 2" x 18" plate!
    Have fun stay safe!

    Guys this is a good idea!
    Never build a rounded grind rail because you will never get used to it.
    Always use flat rails because you can get used to the balance on it and then when you feel bored using the flat rail for a while, you can start using a rouned rail because you already learned the balance on the flat rail and it wont be hard to grind on a rouned rail.

    Definitely need a flat rail soon, I’ve been dying to start those but most ledges are too high for me atm and most curbs around my city are rounded.

    Now I just need to buy a handheld bandsaw, $80 of scrap metal, a wheel grinder, an angle grinder, and a spot welder. Should only cost me about $900.

      Dan p successfully built and sold over 30 custom made grind rails since last year. No one's injured. Thanks for all your help. It's all down to you x

    • Lee Cardiel
      Lee Cardiel Year ago

      Dan P I agree. Which is why I will just shut the curtains and cry myself to sleep every night. Maybe when I get my confidence back I could try something small like making a sand castle. Though it will be a long time before I can leave the house again. You've destroyed my brittle confidence.

      Lets face facts. You are not able to live a normal life. And i am happy you do not finish this project. You would have build it horribly wrong and someone would have been injured badly because of you

    I have a homemade rail and it doesn’t slide at all I wonder if I need to paint it first

    • Dan P
      Dan P Year ago

      If you cant slide on a rail without wax... you don't have the proper skills :)
      Practice dude. Get your ollies down well and and get some control. You can slide any rail, really any without wax... even really rusty ones.

    Also, for it's use, those welds are fine but for anything that would require it have a good amount of pressure, I don't think id trust it.

      RavingRyan probably cheaper to go to an engineering shop if you don’t have any tools. They would probably have a few bits of steel kicking around they could jimmy up for you.

      your better off to buy new so all the other people would not put there sweat and crap on it and they might not work as good but if it is new it would be good it would have nothing wrong with it and if there is something wrong you can take it back
