I skip cross-grinding unless the skates are either new, extremely rusty, severely nicked up, or the edges are so uneven that it would be quicker and more efficient to just cross-grind them first... otherwise I'm just going with the regular grinding stone from the start. FWIW I've been doing this for 10 years (And I'm only 23 now lol) so I've kind of got the way I do it down to a science.

You definitely don't have to cross-grind every skate you get and it's not really needed unless the blades are severely screwed. With the amount of skates that we do here, cross-grinding each pair would hold the line up.
