    Ccm tacks skate blades

    The finish on the CCM's is oxidized. It doesn't affect performance at all, scratched or not. If you are unhappy with the performance, Step is always a solid choice for replacement steel.

    Not ruined, but your sharpener used a stone on the sides and damaged the cosmetic finish on the blades.

    Fix it by Mail?

    If there is a tracking number on the shipment you may be able to ontercept/redirect the package before delivery. Contact the carrier you used to ship.

    We added a dog to our family two weeks ago. It's been an adjustment to say the least. Up at 4:15 this am as he thought it was time to eat.. First week we were up at 2:30 every day, so I'm hoping there's some additional improvement. The lack of sleep is killing me. Forgot my skates last night- had to play in a pair of rentals a size too small. Good times.

    Why don't manufacturers use Poron or D30 in skates?

    And/or marketing

    I would try removing and repositioning the tongue slightly.

    Make sure it lists Toluene as an ingredient. They make a newer "safer" version that doesn't work as well.

    You can reglue that using Barge brand adhesive. It's used in shoe manufacturing. Apply to both sides, wait about 20 min, than clamp together for a few minutes. Will work on the whit trim piece as well.

    What manufacturer makes this steel?

    Yup, vintage Bauer . Some their best quality steel. I have a set of that we coated as a demo set. Great steel if you are still running Custom + holders.

    Hockey Pants or Girdle Recommendation

    The stomach is a tough area to pad, as it's basically a hinge point for your body. Too much bulk there will inhibit your movement. Most shoulder pads that come down that far in the front do so with a separate pad removable with velcro. Most pants have an ab flap to pretty much offer some padding against the belt buckle front closure. I wouldn't worry too much about a lack of padding there.

    The surface most likely wasn't prepped before painting so the paint hopefully won't adhere very well. CitriStrip may be an option as well.

    Is it just on the plastic toe cap area? I've seen a couple of goalie skates painted white. If it's in the plastic try putting some duct tape on the painted area and let it sit for a couple of days before ripping it off. I suspect a good portion of it will come up. Mabe attack the rest with acetone.
