The place near me has the top of the line skate sharpening machine..they charge 8 bucks...you get a perfect sharpening every time. They pop the skate in the machine, and let it do its magic. No worry about some stupid high teenager messing it up doing it by hand.
I don't care if the sharpen makes me a better skater, $16.50 is absurd. I don't get the stupid teenager part though, if you can sharpen, you can sharpen. Age shouldn't matter, I'm sure there are some 40 year olds that do a pathetic job as well. Find a place or a guy that does a good job, and keep going back. you'll get consistent results and be satisfied all the time.

Do you want to make a quick $5000?

I see you took a picture of the curve I made.

Somewhere where you're probably supposed to have paid before you put them on the rack.

Wheels and diamond dressers cost money, and so does the employee's time.
