    Skate liner replacement?

    You'd need experience and an industrial sewing machine to do that. I'm pretty sure George's does liner repairs. http://hockeyrepair.com

    Hands on with Marsblade Ice Holder...

    Spoke to Per - he's going to send me a set next week.

    LS Edge Holders Rattle inside?

    14 rivets. He was charged $2 a rivet. Or $1 to install and $1 to remove.

    Custom Bauer 1X holder size

    Or send it back to Bauer and they can relast the skate. Normally a $75 fee, but if the wrong size was put on, they should waive that.

    LS Edge Holders Rattle inside?

    Yeah, it’s the set screw.

    LS Edge Holders Rattle inside?

    And the trigger is still snappy? There’s only a couple of parts in there; there is a small set screw though. Wonder if that’s it.

    Dressed Skates?

    Lidstrom's Eastons were the same way; they were reverse-engineered Bauer 4000s. Wore those for a long time under different looks until they forced him to wear Synergy boots - I sharpened his skates before he went to training camp; Easton was on the 1500 model and his were the originals! Did that for a year then switched to Warrior (and Bauer for skates.) Graf did not make Nike skates for Fedorov.

    Hockey Skate Vacuum Fit

    That's the CCM F-I-T machine. They were expensive back in the day (2002 I believe, debuted with the CCM 1152 line of skates); most shops didn't get one. They were notoriously finicky - I had one in one of my stores back in the day and inherited another one from a shop that closed. I was really never a fan of them. The main reason was because most used it wrong; they would crank the laces on their skates and then put them in. Found a thread on MSH about it, even. Do a search on CCM Fit Machine on Google and you'll see what it looks like. That's the definition of a vacuum fit. Superfeet used to have a vacuum fitting method for their insoles as well.

    Girdle shell alterations?

    My recommendation is to go with a lower of a 2-piece pant. And you want to go down a size as well. The Nexus shells are pant shells. The newer Supreme shells are girdle shells, and will have velcro in 3 spots; do they match up to Warrior, that I can't confirm.

    Dressed Skates?

    CCM had a long practice of still making skate models as long as they still had the components for it (looks like they're changing that with those McDavid skates); as opposed to Bauer offering skates like the Nexus Mosoca/V-Cut and the ClassicONE from several years back.

    Deciphering CCM Pro Stock Pant Model Names

    520 is the old Supra pant. 7000 was the Jofa 7000 pant.

    Blackstone Flat-Bottom V Thread

    Why not buy new ones?
  13. JR Boucicaut


    Personal experience. Hence why we're doing this. Your mileage will vary. There is not a "one size fits all" approach to this.

    Hockey Skate Vacuum Fit

    F-I-T machine wasn't the same machine that was used on Vakutacks. Two different decades, LOL With the advances of materials nowadays, I think the skates mold pretty well without needing additional machinery/processes.

    Silver skate rivets

    Just unpainted. I had silver rivets in some sizes but never use them because figured most people wouldn't want them.
