  • i drilled a small hole on each end, then used a larger drill bit as a counter sink so the screw would be flush.



    so for now there is just 2 screws holding the angle iron on... if they break, i'll probably use some liquid nails.

  • what kind of drill bits would you need for drilling into the metal and what kind of screws did you use to make it ?..... Thanks for your help.

  • i just used some regular drill bits with titanium coating.

  • pretty much any drill bit should work, but i'd recommend using a drill press for the coping to keep your bit straight and prevent it from slipping.



    that coping is as solid as it could be - perfect for skating.



    the angle iron seems solid for now, but i'm a bit worried that the screws my break loose. especially if you come down hard on it with your skateboard trucks.



    i might try liquid nails on the back side of the entire piece of angle iron in addition to some stronger screws.
