Homemade grind plates

There are some pictures of my homemade grindplate at the bottom of this page.

I made them by cutting and bending a piece of aluminum. I drilled a hole on one end to screw onto the reflector hole on the pedal and I bent the other end so that it clips over the other side of the pedal. It’s easy to do if you have a hacksaw and a drill, and probably any piece of scrap sheet medal metal should work.

My grind plate works great on waxed steel and such, but I have yet to test its durability on a ledge. It may not last long for that methinks. It slides like ice, though.
