It should take a lot longer than 5 minutes especially for the first time. The skate edges should feel smooth. Run your finger across them. If you draw blood, their not sharp, or your pressing way too hard. The bottom should be shiny and a concave should be noticeable. Best bet is to take a pic and post it here or on MSH.
