yo, what's up dogs,
Been awhile since I posted, but I could use some insight/assistance.
I have a construction project going on, and I need to get some tall barrel bushings in like a 95A or harder duro...it's to be used as a spacer... I was wondering if anyone knows where i could get these cheap in bulk, I need 30 total...doesn't need to be exactly a truck bushing but something with similar dimensions would probably do.
{3/4" diam x 3/4" height x 1/4" hole diameter}
I think hard neoprene rubber would suffice as a material as well. Most skate shops want to charge me like 6.50 a pair for these things plus tax and shipping ...does anyone know where I can an extra cheap version of this in bulk pricing?
Thanks,

RADDOG

Venom Bushings started as a mom and pop deal, 16 yr old kid mixing urethane in his garage, maybe worth an email. Muir skates also might know what company/urethane producer to get ahold of.

interesting video,i suppose you need to be making a lot of sets otherwise it wouldnt be worth the cost of materials so would be ideal

Maybe.....The person who would do this would likely also be the guy that buys a "home size" powdercoating kit so he could make/sell "fake" Tracker mags.... I personally think it's a smart business model. At any rate I thought it was a good tutorial.
