    Has anyone got four large Lazer bushing/cushion cups left that they don’t need? This is what I mean: http://www.hawaiisurf.com/lazer-coupelle-superieure-intp-p-4399.html
    I’d buy them at Hawaiisurf, but they now charge € 35 for shipping anything to Germany. I’ be very, very grateful if someone could send me some at a normal postage rate.

    Do they grease it before they stick it into you ?!?!
    Fuckin’Hell !!
    If you can send me the money on Paypal, then I can probably go to the shop and buy this for you and have it sent to you in Germany… foreign orders are still so much a hassle !!
    Why do you need these cups for ?! Did you destroy them ??
    Maybe you could think about some other spare parts I could buy for you in the same time, so you would have a few of different parts available in the future for your needs in repairing you skates (mainly thinking in trucks, kingpin… or bushings)
    The four cups will easily fit in a padded envelopp… small carton box for bigger spare parts won’t be a problem either.
    Just let me know.

    @Nellie: cup washer for lazer bushings are similar to every cup washer you find in normal skateshops except that they are more expensive by hawaii surf… where do you live in germany ? in every big city here there is a longboardshop. they have a lot of choice for washer form (flat or cup) and height. it shouldnt cost you over 5€ (bought some last week here for me in our longboardshop in munich). 😉

    That would be soo very nice of you, thanks a lot for the offer!!
    Of course I could Paypal the money. How much does it cost to send a small padded envelope (& cost of the envelope, of course)?

    No, I didn’t :). I just want to be able to use normal cushions at the bottom (gomme inferieure?) instead of the Lazer ones but I still want to use the Lazer nuts (which require a larger hole in the washer) – the upper cup washers fit exactly, so I need another four of them.
    I don’t think I’ll need any other parts soon – I hope not, at least.
    It would be very cool if you could send me a PM with your Paypal address, and I’d be very, very grateful if you got me those four cup washers!!

    Hello Nellie,

    Oh I see… you want to get softer cushions at the bottom (?)
    Lucky girl, you’re so light weight, right ? 🙂

    Personne was right, Hawaii cups price is a bit of a killer. You could get normal cups… and have them drilled, or drill them yourself… but I guess it’s not so easy to hold this little thing tightly and get the perfect finish.

    I can send you 4 Hawaii cups to germany for 8,80 euros… shipping included.

    . . . Lazer trucks with regular cushions at the bottom, thanks to Golgoth-13


    (I used the new Sure-Grip cushions – 78a, originally yellow. They’re the same size as Khiro barrels)

    To mark the occasion I also got new Venom upper bushings in 88a.
    In order to make my pivot pins actually sit in their pivot cups as they should (which they had never done before), I cut the Venoms down about 1 mm – they are originally exactly the same height as Lazer cushions.
    And finally I put some Blu-Tack into the pivot holes under the cups, so that these would meet the pivot pins and stop ‘rattling around’.


    You can’t see the Blu-Tack, of course, but what you can see is this: my pivot cups no longer disappear into much too deep holes.

    This is what I started out with:


    Regular Lazer trucks & parts, except for the upper Venom bushing

    Next I used some regular cushion cups I had, but I also had to use normal (heavy) nuts:


    Everything worked fine, especially with the other modifications described above, but it looked a bit weird. I used old Variflex Clouds here – very soft. Because my pivot pins were eventually really sitting in their cups, the action felt much better, more direct somehow. I had one of my best nights at the rink with this set-up.

    Sorry I’m only posting this now, but I have injured my foot and not been able to skate in a looong time.
    And yes, we only own one drill bit – the size needed to mount skates 😉 .
