What a great summer project for anyone halfway handy and likes to shred. Save your $1000 on the commercially available electric skateboard and take a walk down the aisles of your local hardware store.
The only tool required that isn’t common is that machine press thing….chances are one exists in your neighborhood and whoever owns it would most likely geek out on a project like this. Have fun with the build and wear a helmet once its done!
