Toy Machine Welcome To Hell Intro

The answer, the cancer, the ointment, the cream! Toy Machine’s Welcome To Hell video remains to this day one of my top 5 favorite skate videos of all time. The soundtrack is straight up awesome. From Jello Biafra’s Lard in the beginning through Misfits, Van Halen, Pink Floyd, Jefferson Airplane, Black Sabbath, Sonic Youth, Iron Maiden and more. The team at the time was epic. We’re talking 1996 Mike Maldonado, Elissa Steamer, Brian Anderson, Satva Leung, Donny Barley, Ed Templeton, Jamie Thomas and a who’s who friends section. Sidenote: where is Satva Leung now anyway? It was also the first time Zero Skateboards peeked out it’s skully little head. And man that slam section sucks!

It’s my turn to pick this Friday’s SW Replay and I’m going with Donny Barley’s part in Welcome To Hell.

We took a trip down to Skate One Distribution last week. Skate One is home to BONES Wheels, Powell-Peralta, Bones Bearings, Mini Logo and several other great skate brands. George Powell himself gave us a personally guided tour through the entire facility. We covered the deck manufacturing process in Part 1, so be sure to check that out before reading on.

Skate One 50 Wheels SPF SW

Despite the large volume of sawdust, urethane and metal scraps they produce, Skate One is surprisingly clean. George said that heavy duty air filtration systems pull particulates out of the air and route them into compact storage bins for proper disposal. They’re very conscious of their waste output and work hard to keep VOC’s to an absolute minimum. Excess urethane scraps are donated for art projects. Everything recyclable is recycled. Proper form. Good on ya, Skate One.

On our walk to the wheel manufacturing section we crossed through a long hallway of smooth, polished concrete. George remarked that this hallway is actually where they test out products in development. If you’re riding BONES or these™ right now, your wheels have ancestors that were honed to perfection by first being skated in that corridor. Kinda cool.

We weren’t allowed to take photos or video in most of the urethane processing facility. As I mentioned in Part 1, there is only one place in the world that BONES’ legendary urethane is produced. Colonel Sanders doesn’t give out his fried chicken recipe. George Powell ain’t gonna give you his. These trade secrets are essential to keeping Skate One ahead of the pack. Respect.

Skate One 43 Wheel Trays

The wheel manufacturing process, George explained, is like making super complex cupcakes. The perfect recipe must have exact measurements of just the right ingredients, added together at just the right time, in just the right sequence. Urethane ingredients have to be precisely measured, brought up to different temperatures separately, combined together at exactly the same instant, mixed and then poured into custom precision wheel molds. After that, of course, they’re baked for about 40 minutes.

Skate One 32 Wheels CoolingSkate One 34 Wheel Washing

To make millions of complex cupcakes, you have to refine the process down to an exact science in order to produce large batches at such high quality. They don’t taste very good, but seeing this in action was a mind blower.

Skate One 46 Wheel Shaving

After the wheels are pulled from the oven, they’re set out on concrete to cool off. Once cool, they’re scooped up and placed into laundry bags to be washed in bulk. This removes the oily urethane residue left over from the initial cupcake-like process.

Now that the wheels are pretty much wheels, they can be shaved into custom shapes and/or printed with graphics. The method they use to apply graphics to wheels actually came as a bit of a surprise. They use boobs. Well, boob-shaped silicone applicators that dip into an inked printing plate and are then pressed into the side of the wheel. With a custom printing machine they’re able to crank out high quality wheel graphics in high quantities, quickly and easily.

Skate One 35 Wheel Graphics

Skate One 38 Wheel Graphics Applied

Whoever invented the boobie graphics applicator (pad printing machine) is a genius. The fact that it can apply complex graphics so cleanly onto the curved surfaces of the wheels is impressive. The employee in the photo above was swiftly rotating out blank and printed wheels, scraping excess urethane, wiping off boobies and holding a conversation. They got this stuff down.

Skate One 48 Bushing Bins

Of course, bushings are also produced en masse and though it may not be as impressive as making wheels, it was cool to see that many at once and to see how they do it. A lifetime supply of BONES Bushings, anybody?

George told an insightful story about the BONES SPF Wheels. Back in the day, Skate One’s indoor skatepark, Skate Zone, had really smooth concrete and would get super hot during the day. Something about the terrain would just flatspot every wheel that rode on it. So, in 1991, they invented a new urethane formula that would still perform well but could withstand the flatspotting tendencies of Skate Zone. However, the process resulted in clear wheels so… no one bought them. For 10 years, they just didn’t move. There’s something about clear wheels that people seem to associate with soft and squishy urethane, even though these were possibly the best street/park wheel on the market. After a decade, they mixed white pigment into them, named them “Skate Park Formula” (referring to the old Skate Zone park) and BOOM they flew off the shelves. SPF’s were a decade ahead of their time and no one knew it till they got a paint job. Goes to show, looks ain’t everything.

Skate One 33 George Powell SPF

Skate One 40 George Powell Signing

As mentioned in Part 1, the Skate One facility is fully equipped to take an idea from paper to prototype to finished product in a day. They’ve invested in all the equipment needed to machine their own molds for urethane or deck shapes as well as a wide range of metal components for street and downhill trucks. Or anything else for that matter. Much of their tech is top secret and freakin’ expensive. Skate One has complete creative control over every step of the manufacturing process and with George Powell still in the captain’s chair, they’re obsessed with quality.

On this trip, I learned that there’s a damn good reason my setup has always included some combination of BONES Wheels, BONES Bushings and Bones Bearings. Skate One is for skateboarding, by skateboarders and they won’t settle for anything but the best. Keep up the good work, fellas!

Thanks again to Skate One for inviting us in and big thanks to George Powell for taking the time to give us such a thorough tour. And for the signed board! We learned a lot, had a great time and were very impressed. We’ll have a video of the walkthrough online later this week, so be sure to subscribe to Skate Warehouse on YouTube for that. Subscribe to the Go Skate Blog and stay tuned for more great road trips, new products and good times. Go skate some Bones Bearings, Mini Logo, Powell-Peralta or BONES Wheels!

Skate One 51 Skateboarding ONLY

Last Wednesday, we loaded up the van with a crew of Skate Warehouse ninjas and took a drive down to Skate One Distribution in Goleta, California. Skate One is the home of BONES Wheels, Powell-Peralta, Bones Bearings, Mini Logo and several other great skate brands. They’ve been responsible for the best bearings and highest performance urethane in skateboarding for decades running and we were excited to get an inside look at the facility. We arrived and were pleasantly greeted by our Skate One rep, Jamie Gathard, and our tour guide… George Powell himself!

George Powell-Peralta Jamie Gathard

Jamie Gathard, and the legendary George Powell.

After a brief introduction, George gave us some history on the building. It had been a large lemon warehouse before Powell-Peralta acquired it way back in 1988. When life gives you a lemon warehouse, remodel the entire building and make skateboards…

Skate One 9 George Powell-Peralta Tour

We were told in the beginning there are some places within the facility we could tour but could not photograph. There’s only one source in the world for BONES’ renowned urethane and they aim to keep it that way. Certain secrets to their innovative success have to remain hidden lest the whole world start producing perfect STF wheels. If you’re looking for trade secrets, we don’t have ‘em!

What we do have is an insightful look into how some of the world’s best skateboard components are designed, manufactured, and continually improved by skateboarders, for skateboarding. George Powell is still highly involved in every step of the process. All of their engineers and product designers are highly skilled and 100% skateboarding. The Skate One facility is fully equipped to take an idea from paper to prototype to finished product in a single day. This allows them to rapidly test and tweak new improvements in-house, on the fly, every day. The level of precision and quality control George demonstrated throughout the tour was truly impressive.

Skate One 11 George Powell-Peralta Maple Wood

Precise humidity control for wood storage creates a clean, unique scent in the air. All Skate One maple is grown and harvested in the USA, near Great Lakes, Michigan. Plies are sorted into face grade veneers for deck tops and bottoms, and core veneers for strong inner layers.

Skate One 12 Deck Blatter Press

Deck “Bladder” Presses

The veneers are sanded so precisely, each one is within 0.002″ (two one-thousandths of an inch) of the ideal thickness. Any thinner kills strength. Any thicker adds weight. Custom machinery gets it just right.

Deck veneers are adhered using their own custom pneumatic “bladder” presses which employ air pressure to compress the plies and laminates. The bladder press has an interchangeable mold on the bottom to accommodate various shapes, and a high pressure urethane “bladder” that pushes down from the top. This is counter to the commonly used “hard press” which simply crushes the plies together with flat, heavy metal. Doing it the Skate One way eliminates broken plies and unevenly nested veneers, adding life to your pop and strength to your board.

We asked George what makes 7 the magic number for industry standard deck construction. He explained that you need 2 cross band plies for tensile strength, and of course 1 ply adhered between them. Placing another 2 plies, 1 on each side, adds enough off-angle core strength that a 5-ply deck is the absolute minimum for skateboarding. Technically, you could go skate a 5-ply deck, but it wouldn’t be pretty. Adding a top and a bottom “face-grade” veneer allows you to seal and finish the deck while remaining lightweight enough to skate comfortably. Voila! 7-ply deck construction.

Skate One 14 George Powell Pressed DecksSkate One 15 Center Lines

Once the decks have been pressed, they’re ready for bolt holes. A tried and true technique keeps the decks perfectly aligned for this step.

Skate One 18 Deck DrillingSkate One 21 Deck Routing

Once the bolt holes are drilled, decks move to the CNC router and really begin to take shape. Each deck is suctioned in place to the CNC machine, aligned by the bolt holes and cut to exact specifications.

Skate One 20 Deck Routing Wide

Skate One 22 George Powell-Peralta DeckSkate One 23 Deck Edging

This leaves a flat edge which then needs to be rounded out by hand. Once edges are rounded by skilled skate craftsmen, they take the decks to a pneumatic sander to perfect the shape. After sanding, they’re sealed and cured using a custom ultraviolet oven that completes the process in three seconds! Traditional sealing/curing takes much longer and is prone to mistakes. Not here!

Powell-Peralta Screenprinting

Powell-Peralta Half Scale GraphicsPowell-Peralta Graphic Films

At this point, the decks are ready for graphics. The films for screening graphics are all made in-house. First, the graphics are rendered at half scale to get the colors right. Then they’re screen printed by hand on full size films which can be transferred onto the decks. George confirmed that in the basement of Skate One, there is an Indiana-Jones-like archive of film screens representing the entire history of Powell-Peralta graphics. A skate nerd treasure trove!

Powell-Peralta Heat Transfer Machine

George joked that the guy above pretty much has hands made of kevlar. He’s feeding the deck with a graphic film through the heat transfer machine, which will apply the image to the board. The roller on this puppy keeps a consistent 400° temperature. Watch your fingers!

Powell-Peralta Ray Barbee Deck

After this final step a perfectly constructed, high-quality Powell-Peralta or Mini Logo deck is ready to get boxed up and shipped to Skate Warehouse.

Now you can purchase that deck and immediately begin smashing Skate One’s beautiful handiwork with an unforgiving barrage of asphalt and concrete. It’s a cruel world.

One area we couldn’t get a picture of was the deck testing room. On one side sat their original deck strength tester, aptly named, “The Guillotine“. On the other side was a caged in, top secret, high tech deck breaker. This newer machine provides detailed feedback on the tenacity of a skateboard deck. They’re able to pinpoint exact weaknesses and strengths of not only their own construction, but of others’ as well. They break decks so you don’t have to. This room is crucial to staying ahead of the technological curve.

Stay tuned for Part 2 tomorrow of our George Powell guided tour through Skate One Distribution. We’ll get a glimpse into the design, pouring, molding and testing of BONES urethane. Until then, go skate!
