I've been longboarding on and off for the past twelve years, progressively getting more obsessed in the most recent years. But no matter the level or intensity of interest, nothing is more infuriating than being unable to skate because of the rain, or even worse being in the middle of skating and having it rain on you. Because no one like slippin' and slidin', at least when you don't plan. So in an effort to stick it to Mother Nature, I designed my WT Wheels
Step 1: SAFETY WARNING
It's not asbestos, but there will be a lot of dust particles, and I mean a lot. Take precaution of yourself, by using protective eye wear and a respiratory mask. I'll admit there are safety advisories in life you can ignore, but this one is quite real, besides that fact you could be inhaling a lot of rubber particles, who wants to taste rubber any ways?
Step 2: Materials
Materials list is pretty simple:
-A bit obvious
-Engineer's best friend
-And all the supplies that go with it. i.e. ink, paper, and the included image in this Instructable
I suggest a sheet to place under you workspace, or if you have a workshop, I suggest you work there. And as I said in the previous step, get some respiratory masks and a pair of safety goggles/glasses.
