  1. Reviving an old thread- I've been sharpening for one of my son's high school teammates. His father has a Sparx , but wanted to try FBV. I put him on 95/75 which he now loves. He's coming from 1/2" on the Sprax. What Fire ring would feel closest to 95/75? He knows it won't be the same, but Dad is hoping to get close-ish.
  2. It's funny, I'm sharpening for a couple of my son's high school teammates that aren't satisfied with the Sparx sharpening quality. "This is going to sound weird , but could you do my son's skates?" Keep an eye out for Blackstone X02 or even an X01 if it's just for you. I've had both, they are great machines and I was able to get great deals on both used. They aren't available new from Blackstone anymore, but per the rep I spoke with they don't have any plans to stop supporting that line. Don't be intimidated to learn how to sharpen manually. It's tremendously satisfying and not that hard. It helps tremendously to have an experienced sharpener give you some guidance if possible. But it's also not the end of the world if you can't.
  3. My son and I both have these. The we found the Jetspeed girdles to run very tight. He's using a CCM PP90 shell (available in longer inseam lengths) and I'm using a Tackla TGS60 . Both are XL. You would want a + 1 or 2" with the CCMs.
  4. In my day hotdogs cost a nickel.
  5. Take a look at the CCM Jetspeed/Tacks girdles. I'm similarly sized and have been using these for a few years now and cansee going back to regular pants. The legs are height adjustable so you can dial in your preferred length. Not bulky or heavy at all.
  6. Used Universal Wheel Dresser . Allows traditional quill dressed skate sharpeners to utilize Blackstone's Spinner system. Cost effective way to add the option of Flat Bottom V sharpening to your existing machine. Comes with two magnetic bases, Blackstone 92/75 FBV spinner. $200 + Actual shipping
  7. I'll take my chances with the concussion.
  8. We need to just rename this the "What's broken on Steve ?" Thread... Hang in there Brother.
  9. Probably one if the easiest mods to do. Even you should be able to do it. I use a fresh triangular X-acto blade.
  10. "We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better, stronger, faster" Damn Steve, good luck with the surgery.
  11. I've had good luck using shin pad strap sets. Use JR or SR depending on your width preference. Pics are of a bicep strap swap I did last month for reference.
  12. Anyone have a line on one of these? Sharpening for a high school team this season . It's no longer on the Prosharp site. Thanks
  13. Why didn't you heat the area first? It would have made the area much more pliable and more likely to retain the shape of the punch out once cooled. Punching material in its cooled, rigid state reacts predictably, as seen in the pictures above.
