We offer a wide range of services to keep your boots and blades at their best.
Beeswax - All natural water proofer. We either take new boots or boots that have the blade removed. We then melt beeswax and coat to the bottom soles of the skates. When the wax is dry it is reheated. As the beeswax is heated so is the sole, allowing more beeswax to be absorbed. Each skate goes through this process at least 3 times. Beeswaxing of skates should be done somewhere between 1-3 times a year depending on how much and how long the skater skates. The final look of the skate is a slightly waxy look and feel with the color of the sole clearly visible. $25.00 per pair
Urethane - Which is a chemical waterproofer. This can be done to new or used skates. After the blade has been removed urethane is painted on the sole by a sponge brush. Both skates go through a minimum 3 coat procedure. The final look of the boot is a clear, glossy look. Urethane can darken the sole as much as 4-5 shades. Urethane is not cut resistant. Boots could need additional coats depending on how hard skated the boots are. $30.00 per pair
Blade mounting is performed free of charge to customers who purchase both boots and blades. Otherwise mounting is $20.00.
We do precision sharpening. Skaters need edges they can count on day in and day out. We will set your hollow to you specifications, whether that is 1/2 inch or death valley, and anything in between. When you get your skates back you can rest easy that your blades were sharpened right, the first time, every time, because your blades are simply perfect.
We use one of the Sid Broadbent sharpeners. It’s one of the machines Sid wrote the book on sharpening with. We use one of only a handful of machines still in regular use from his original model design. Model 2 is available, but our stand is if ain’t broke why fix it? In fact, the Sid Broadbent sharpener is recommended by some blade manufacturers for use on their blades.
