Step 5:


Here is the brake before adding the puck. Once the puck is glued on, the hole for the screw will be covered up. I usually don't remove the brake anyway but you could drill a hill if you needed to.

Press the brake on to make sure all of the epoxy is holding. Hold it for a minute or two until the puck stops moving once you let go of it.
Intresting, i dont use a brake block i brake with my wheels wouldnt it have been easier to do that? I only use my brake block when im teaching.<br><br>but hey its still a good instructable for those who do use their brake blocks
Nice. I bought some extra brakepads, but I am running out of them (only one left). Good to see something I can try before I put in that last one ! I heavily rely on my brakes. I know a lot of people don't, but I rather save my wheels and am way better at braking with a brakepad anyways. (like all wheels of the ground, just coming to a screeching stop standing on the pad alone :))
I rely on my brakes too. I would rather save my wheels like you. Brakes are far cheaper than wheels. Please be careful with these homemade brake pads though. Since they are epoxied and not a one piece brake pad, they might not handle as much stress as a commercial brake pad. I haven't had any problems though except for wearing them down too fast.<br><br>Thank you for the kind comment and good luck. If you try this, would you please let me know how it worked for you?
Thank you for the kind comment. Unfortunately I seemed to have erased the comment by fixing a spelling mistake and re-publishing. I don't quite know how instructables works yet. But again, thank you.
This post was for a comment I accidentally deleted when I re-published.
