I had worn out my rollerblade brake and had gone to the store to buy a new one. Unfortunately the brake i needed was not manufactured anymore. I didn't want to buy a new pair of rollerblades just for the brake so I decided I would have to figure out how to make my own. After some experimentation, this is what I came up with.
Materials needed are:
A hockey puck or any suitable hard rubber ($0.99)
A saw or something to cut the puck with (already had)
5 minute epoxy ($1.25)
Aluminum foil to make a mixing bowl
A mixing stick
You can experiment to find out what works best for you. I found 5 minute epoxy works the best. I tried other glues and silicone but the brake sheared off. It's also best to get the hardest puck you can as it will last longer. The puck will mark floors and other surfaces so be careful. Also the puck won't last as long as a regular brake but you can get four brakes out of one puck so it's okay.
You will need something to cut the puck with. I used a hand saw.
Next, you will need something to glue the puck with. I found 5 minute epoxy seems to work the best.
And last, you will need a puck. Get the hardest puck you can because it will last the longest and not mark as much. You can see here that I already cut a piece out.
You can see the worn out brake. Try not to let it wear out all of the way so there is something you can attach the puck to.
Here you can see that I cut the puck into four pieces (already used one of them). You can cut the puck into any shape you like. I just do it this way because it's easier.
