Have someone teach you. Even if nobody there "can cut skates well" at least they know how to use the machine and calibrate the skate holders. I don't know anyone who is 100% self taught in sharpening skates. Once you get the basics it's up to you to be precise and take pride in every skate you do. Treat a house league pee wees skates the same way you would treat yours or an elite junior or high school players. That's how you will get good, through repitition. Practice practice practice. It won't be fun but the more you do (if you are doing them correctly) the better you will get. And please, if you use the rentals for practice, get them right. Usually people who rent skates are beginners and you'd hate to give them a bad experience because their edges aren't even.
