100% made in USA skateboard ?
« on: March 27, 2017, 01:57:23 AM »
And I don't mean trucks that are "assembled in USA with Foreign and Domestic parts" but like, honestly made in the US. 



Deck: Chapman Shaggin' Wagon http://www.chapmanskateboards.com/hardgoods/shaggin-wagon-anna (or something by South Central, but I want to search by wheelbase as well as width and it gets complicated.  Any stores that stock SC boards and have wheelbase info online?)

Trucks: Thunder Hollow Lights http://amzn.to/2nri8po (favorite color. Are these made in the USA ?)
Griptape: Jessup http://amzn.to/2nrBlYb (Made in USA)
Wheels: Bones STF something or other http://www.tactics.com/bones/hart-stf-v1-pro-skateboard-wheels/cheers-83b (Made in USA)

Bearings: ??? I don't know if any bearings are made in the USA. Maybe I'll have to go with Bones or SKF or something, but would love to find something made in the US.

Hardware: I only found these wacky things things that look like Trump's ballsack https://www.aspenfasteners.com/product-p/tr039-1032x78-00100.htm

Still looking for American-made nuts !

Mostly worried about Thunder trucks at the moment (Because I already know everything else is made in the USA or Switzerland...)

If you are worried about thunder, don't get the light version with the forged baseplate as those baseplates are made in China. Get the regular thunders/indys etc.
I've hated immigrants ever since I got here.

You'll need to get regular trucks like Firebert said but I  don't think any of them are stamped Made In USA anymore as lots of the smaller parts are outsourced...

I'm still glad the Ermico foundry is making the bulk of the truck though. Hopefully...
