Better count me in too then... I'm equally as guilty and running on the same stuff since my fresh meat! Should we use one of those isolation cabinets with the gloves built into the window? :shock:

I'm in too! My skates remain unmaintained (however relatively new and currently unused!)

Dear All.

Just a quick reminder about the Fresh Meat Skate Maintenance Session taking place this Sunday 22nd January at the meeting room upstairs at Jack Kane between 1.30 - 2.30 pm.

Shootin' Annie will be hosting the event and she has suggested the following;

For those of you coming along, it would be useful if you could bring a few things:

Solvent. Citrus cleaner, rubbing alcohol, white spirit, etc. Citrus cleaner is probably the friendliest, with the least nasty fumes. If you don't have any, or would rather not carry around a bottle of nasty nasty around with you, I have a big bottle of industrial methylated spirits from my work that I will bring with to share.

Bearing Oil. Bones Speed Cream is the shizzle, but you can use any bearing oil, and apparently sewing machine oil works a treat if you've got it. I've got a bottle I can share, but it can also be had at Route One on Cockburn St if you want your own.

Small flat-bottomed dish/jar/tupperware. Something to clean your bearings in.

Hairdryer. I'll be bringing one along, but if we could get a couple more, that would be grand.

Various other stuff that I will supply: I'll bring along some old newspapers and kitchen roll. I also find rubber gloves handy for cleaning bearings, as you don't really want solvent on your hands, so I'll bring along a supply of these too. Chopsticks are handy for swooshing your bearings around in the solvent, and for fishing them out - not sure if I have any at home, but a fork will do as well.

And remember your skates and your skate tools!!

Hope to see you all there!

For those that can't make it, I've been thinking about writing up a short tutorial illustated with PHOTOS. It's really very easy - I'll try to get this done soon.

Hi All,

I'm sure there will be more opportunities for a skate maintenance session, this was mostly aimed at Fresh Meat and that's why its on a Sunday.

Maybe we could sort something else out another time if Hooty would be up for hosting, I'm happy to hold it in my house as long as its less than 10 folk....I have large windows for ventilation. Maybe sometime in February or March?
