Most people don't think much about the physics of it all, so they just go and have skates sharpened. So, in general, a shop will have a typical "house" radius that they keep on the grinding wheel unless there is a request for something else. I think most of the time it's 1/2" but sometimes it's 5/8".

Then there is also the fact that some shops are better than others about keeping the wheel dressed properly so that the radius is accurate.
