I'm going to make a snake board Answered

I'm going to make a snake board out of an old skate board and the only thing I need help with is how can I make a rotating 'hinge' so the decks can spin freely?

Which direction do you need the hinge, and why won't a simple bolt-and-bearing or nested pipes work?

Instead of a washer, put a set of ball bearings in. That's what the pic looks like.

I get them at the surplus store or out of old equipment that gets junked. If you don't know how to use them, don't. Use two washers in between the boards and try to get some grease between the washers.
