How to get rust of my skates?
 
For the past few weeks for some reason I forgot to wipe down my skates and checked my skates and saw rust on the blades. I got some off by scraping it with a steak knife and hot water, but not too much is coming off. I did this for over an hour yesterday...

sharpen them ... of use a "stone" (we say pierre in here but I don't know in english).

we call it a stone :)

yes sharpen them. if it's up the side of the blade try white vinegar or some other cheap homemade solution.

Ahh, I last sharpened them in December. Are you sure it gets the rust off? Never heard of that before.

Yeah I'm sure, the rust is just on the surface. It may take a good sharp though but it will work.

Stone for the sides, then sharpen them.

AHF 03-26-2009 07:03 PM

Hehe. Put the steak knife away and get them sharpened.

(I've sharpened a lot of rusty skates, and it's never been an issue. One good sharpening will take care of it.)

depending on how rusty they are, you might have to get it grinded which would cost a bit more.

A sharpening is a sharpening...whether we crossgrind a skate or not doesn't matter...

mmmm, then why does my hockey shop charge extra to get rust off and to sharpen new skates?

AHF 03-26-2009 09:41 PM

That's messed up man. I gotta say, that's the first time I've heard of such a 'concept'. Charging extra for two or three passes on the crossgrinder? That's crazy talk. :)

You are being taken for a ride, I'm afraid...

actually im giving the ride cause i work there:laugh: thats all i do too is just two or three passes on the crossgrind then a normal sharpening. its like an extra 10 bucks too. Oh well, i dont care cause i havent paid for a skate sharpening in like 5 years

AHF 03-26-2009 09:55 PM

Haha. Fair enough.

Though, knowing what it takes to sharpen a skate, I'd be outraged if I was ever charged an extra $10 for all that work...

Would this be an 'american' thing?

I ask because I've seriously never heard of this...I've never had a customer tell me "What, you're not gonna charge me for the crossgrind?"

i dont really think anyone who asks for their skates to be sharpened around me knows the process of sharpening a skate. practically non of them as for a certain hollow.

do you charge for first time sharpenings?

Simple Green and a plastic scrubber. No scratching or scarring.

5 for a sharpening 15 for new skates or get rust off

For the sides, I always used WD40 and an abrasive sponge. Gets it off in a hurry.

For rust in the hollow, I just wait until the next sharpening, though you could get the sponge and WD40 in there too if you want.

Go to the hardware store and get some steel wool.

Takes it right off like magic.
