after a recent post on skateboards (here), i was interested in how they make them, so have been checking out some videos on youtube. i found three good ones, each slightly different, more in their machinery than their techniques. the first, which looks at the '13 skateboards' brand, is the most basic (by which i mean using the least specialised tools). the second, looking at 'a third foot', a uk based company, uses more specialised equipment (such as an actual glue roller rather than just a paint roller). the final one is in the 'element skateboards' factory in america, where they create much larger batches and therefore have much more specialised machinery (a machine that drills all four truck holes at once for example).
