    Something useful I found somewhere in a thread:

    1 inch no riser pads
    1.25 inch .25 inch risers or smaller
    1.50 inch .50 inch riser or smaller
    1.50 inch (pan head) fiberglass & composite construction slalom decks
    1.75 inch 1.25 inch risers and smaller

    1 1/4" 10/32 panhead/Machine bolts from the hardware store. maybe 1 1/2" if its a thick deck. Generaly a baseplate is about 1/4 thick, the nut is about a 1/4 thick, and a deck is under an 3/4". my 10 ply pluss 2 carbon can take a 1 1/4 with no riser, and with a 1/4 riser i still have threads showing with 1 1/2 bolts. do a quick measure of deck thickness, and add it all up.

    Or you could do what i do, and what i do is order a set of daddies dank bolts in every size they have. It is never bad to have extra hardware. Just the other day I used an extra bolt to fix a folding chair...

    Thats a great guide...if all decks were the same thickness.....I just take my deck, riser, and baseplate to the hardware store if I don't have hardware on hand. 10 x 32 buttonhead machine screws and nylon insert locking nuts to match...you will skate away about two bucks poorer.
