Children's Dual-purpose Skateboard

This is a dual-purpose skateboard designed for children. It can be used as an ordinary skateboard or folded at the hinge to make it a small cart. The weight of skateboard is still difficult for smaller children to carry. Skateboard is no longer a convenient tool for them when they cannot use skateboard to pass (such as uphill) or when they have something in their hands. Therefore, I designed this dual-purpose skateboard, hoping that skateboard is still a convenient and interesting tool in the above circumstances.

Here are the basic dimensions of the skateboard, which you can use as a reference when making.

When the sliding plate does not fold: total length 78cm, height 13.5cm, width 20cm.

When the sliding plate is folded: the length of the horizontal part is 30.9cm, the length of the folded part is 47.1cm, and the overall height is 54.23cm.

Supplies:

An ordinary skateboard, the size of the skateboard I made is 78cm long, 20cm wide and 13.5cm high.

2 metal hinges.

Hot glue gun and hot glue.

Step 1: Cutting Skateboard

Step 2: Grooving

Dig out the space for installing the hinge on the sliding plate surface. Pay attention to make the size and depth of the groove coincide with the hinge.

Step 3: Mounting Hinge

Take 2 hinges and stick them in the positions shown in the figure with hot glue.

Step 4: Installing Sliding Wheel

Assemble the sliding plate bracket, bearing, sliding plate wheel, bridge, bridge pin, sandpaper, side nut, cylinder ring, main pin of bracket, etc.

Step 5: Commissioning
