    I planning to make some skates out of 3" and 5" C channel,
    I ordered these bearings, I hope these are ok for the purpose ??

    does anyone have a pic of a good skate? I have noticed some with the axle inside the C flanges, some with axle on the back of web with 2x4 between flanges.
    What is better?

      Check out the northern tool skates for ideas. They are well regarded by many. Two different types in particular. The ones below, and those that have the poly wheels.

      A few years ago surplus center had a bunch of really nice heavy polyurethane wheels for $5. They were dual bearing, 3/4" bore, and about 3"OD and 3" wide. Those are often used as the front wheels on pallet jacks. They are awesome for machine skates. I bought 12 similar ones at auction.. machines glide so nice! I wanted to get some more. SC had 450 or so in stock, and then poof, they were gone.
