Aluminum Finger Skate board

Step 1: What you will need

You will a need techdeck to drill the holes into the Aluminum, a screwdriver, shock absorber and 8 screws***. Also you need a drill or drillpress with a 1/16 drill bit. A pair of good sizers is needed to cut the shape.
I got an Aluminum drier vent duct connector for $2 at homedepot.
Every thing in the picture is optional, if you want to put trucks on it.

I have tried using soda cans, but it is too thin. You could Epoxy several layers though.
Do one of how to put a design on those
To answer your question, you buy one because they're dirt cheap, and they're perfectly shaped and weighted, and have all the necessary hardware included (grip, trucks, wheels...)<br /> <br /> I find skating on a &quot;lightweight&quot; board more difficult<br /> <br /> But, nevertheless, this is very creative, and very unique! How do people like them? <br />
are the edges sharp?
Kind of. Not like a knife, thats thick allunium compared to a soda can.<br />
i made one out of a coke can i recommend this because with the multiple layers it gets uber strong and the natural curve also adds to the strength ________ |_|Craig|_|

how old are you.... like 16??!
brilliant idea 5.1 stars
This is a good idea - but u said why buy one when u can make one. But u need one both to make and shape the board, and for the wheels!
if there all the rage at school im sure a friend could let u borow his for the night
true, true, but im working on home made trucks/wheels i just barrowed the board and traded $1 for trucks and wheels at school.
where do i get a metal liked that???
Home depot Dryer vent ducts
here is a pic of mine
Can you use alluminum foil?
did you bend up the side edges?? if you dident it makes it alot stronger and stiffer(like a real skate board)
I made one it works great! but we modified it a little. But is great! i made one a long board one too.
yea someone who is satasfied thanks
wont it be too thin and bill bend if you use it? (I think you should glue 2 together)
you know what im gonna be nice and i really do think its very good idea i might make one. and joshWaaR is the dipshit not you.good job :]
if you have a tech deck to make this then why not use the tech deck?? much easier.
cuz a Aluminum is cooler and cost less to make <br/>1 Techdeck 3$ =1<br/>1 piece of alunminum 3$ =6to7 <br/>
but (here it comes...) if you already have the techdeck why would you spend the extra money on aluminum?
here, my dad went and bought a few of them for me to use as a wind shield on my camping stove, but i only needed one.
oooh ok
I made my own tech deck from plastic at school, because it the end of term the teacher lets us make anything. So I made a deck out of acrylic, by cutting the shape out on a band saw and fileing the edges off. Then I heated up the edges and made it the shape of a real tech deck I then got a drill and made the holes that you can put real trucks on from a tech deck on. I put a pair of green retro trucks on. As a last touch I used a laser cutter to make a desighn on the bottom it looks really cool. bunduk
no sorry
wheredja get the trucks?
Good instructable, although you would need to havw a tech deck in the first place to do this... Good!
not realy, thats just for a perfect shape
yeah but you need the little trucks.... so u need a tech deck to make it
putting on trucks is optional
You can buy those seperately.
well thats not really making it from scratch... i feel like it would be more convenient to just buy the whole thing
no, but if you use to thin aluminum it could.
that looks awsum!! way better than the crappy tech deck designs!!! havnt played with one of them for years but im definately gonna make this! i mite try it with a few layers of aluminium from cans
just make 1 witout wheels i did it last year at tech and it was fun.
i have 7 without wheels (see step 2) snowboards
That looks pretty funny, but it's a nice idea! They look pretty cool-- try adding on designs and stuff.
