|'Ten-Pak' Sharpening Package|
| NOTE: The number of skaters during the 'off-season' period is greatly reduced and therefore
maintaining reduced, specific, hard shop hours would not be convenient to you nor practical for me.
Dropping skates off for a later or next day pick-up is encouraged.

|In simplified terms, profiling Is the shaping of your blades from a sideways view. Your existing blade profile can be maintained, or a new customised profile can easily be applied. Forward, Defence or Goalie skate profiles are all easily achieved with the computer aided grinding machine (CAG). Once you've decided upon the blade profile for your needs, the data will be stored for subsequent profiling or sharpening requirements. This will provide you the exact same profile cut each and every time. Twice a season is recommended (start & mid season) unless your regular sharpening attendant is 'heavy handed' which may result in more frequent touch up needs.
-> Be prepared to leave the skates; this is not a while you wait task.
|Quality is never comprimised for quantity. Individual sharpening specifications applied.
Drop by, email or telephone to discuss or outline your team or group requirements, wants or needs.
|For your convenience, you can drop off skates before or after routine shop hours, from Tuesday through Friday (7am-11pm)
All skates dropped off will be ready for pickup when the shop next opens or soon after.
Examples: -> skates dropped off before opening will be ready for pickup as soon as possible upon opening.
-> skates dropped off after closing will not be ready for pickup until opening the next business day
Ensure the skater's "Last Name & Contact Number" is placed with each pair of skates, along with any other special requirements or instructions. (ex: Brian: ph.770-9864 5/8" - pick up after 4 pm)
To ensure pick up availability after closing hours . . . . (a) make sure you have indicated such in your instruction note to me, and
(b) sharpening must be pre-paid
Note - All skates dropped off are considered 'in-line', just as if you were waiting
|The TEN-PAK is available upon request. This is a prepaid sharpening package which provides a family, a group or an individual, ten (10) sharpens at a substantial savings. This package is designed & discounted for high volume users.
Please be sure you have high volume sharpening needs as this package expires one year from the date of purchase.
-> Status updates are available to clients who have chosen to leave their Ten-Pak card at the shop.
-> Simly send an email requesting your status, please include your last name and phone number.
|The skater's satisfaction is my TOP priority.
-> You may not know what radius of hollow to use, this situation is common. Regardless of which ROH you choose, if you find there
is too much bite or not enough - bring them back the next day and I'll adjust to a more suitable hollow, no problem and no charge.
-> For profiles, you very likely will not know your preferred 'profile'. A follow-up change/adjustment of the blade profile (if required) is
included in the original fee. The ultimate goal is to get your skate to exactly where you want it.
|The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of convenience is forgotten|
|Results driven - Blades are ground to the radius of hollow that you choose, expertly finished to a fine polish to minimize friction, and measured to ensure precise 'square' even edges. Blades that are not even are not "done". During this process your blade is routinely inspected to evaluate for: (a) pre-existing severe edge unevenness (b) bends in the runners, and (c) cracks or other runner damage. Metal removal is minimized to what is needed to provide fresh and even edges. All skaters are encouraged to specify or learn their individual preferences for radius of hollow (ROH). Almost any ROH is available between 1" to 3/8".
Skaters should also consider blade profiling.
-> Rust is forever, and will cause pitting in your blade, which will ultimately affect the edges. (moisture + heat + metal = rust)
-> A Bent blade may be straightened, however there is a real risk of breakage in britle blades with high stainless content.
