2022-10-12 (W) PoweredInlineSkates Finally wearable

I decided that the interface between the boot and frame was in a perfect rectangle, so I added all three angled aluminum stock bars and tightened them with the corner braces in place so the structure would keep its shape. When I took off the extra hardware, everything stayed rigid, and I was happy. I installed the interface between the plastic plates and tightened it securely.
Heaviest skates I've held

The skate was the heaviest I've ever held. I considered putting the powered wheel in the front for several reasons. If I were walking up a flight of stairs, being able to lock the front tire would give me lots of traction in the right area. If I applied too much power by accident, a front-wheel-drive might shoot forward, but it might lift off the ground as my leg went with it, which might be safer. Ultimately I decided to put it under my heel since that location is in line with my leg and much easier to lift and control. A lot of weight near my toe would increase the likelihood of dangerous twisting in an accident.
