SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES AND SYMBOLS
WARNING!
READ OPERATOR'S
MANUAL BEFORE USING
THE MACHINE
EYE AND HEARING
PROTECTION REQUIRED
The machine must be used only for the purpose of grinding skate blades.
Always fasten the skate in the skate holder. NEVER hold skate being sharpened only by your hands.
It is important to support the work properly to get the best result possible, minimize body exposure and loss of control.
Check grinding wheel protective cover for proper fit before using the machine to minimize the risk of flying debris.
Keep hands and body away from the rotating grinding wheel.
Contact with a rotating grinding wheel or parts from an exploding grinding wheel can result in serious injury.
Only use grinding wheels approved by SSM Produkt AB. Use grinding wheels with correct size and shape.
Unauthorized grinding wheels may be dangerous!
Keep grinding wheel securely fastened.
When fastening grinding wheel, never use damaged or incorrect flange , flange washer or nut.
The flange and flange washer were specially designed for the machine, for optimum performance and safety of operation .
Safety Warnings Specific for Grinding:
Use only wheel types that are recommended for your power tool and the specific guard designed for the
selected wheel. Wheels for which the power tool was not designed cannot be adequately guarded and are unsafe.
The guard must be securely attached to the power tool and positioned for maximum safety, so the least amount
of wheel is exposed towards the operator.
The guard helps to protect operator from broken wheel fragments and accidental contact with wheel.
Wheels must be used only for recommended applications. For example: do not grind with the side of cut-off
wheel. Abrasive cut-off wheels are intended for peripheral grinding, side forces applied to these wheels may cause
them to shatter.
Always use undamaged wheel flanges that are of correct size and shape for your selected wheel.
Proper wheel flanges support the wheel thus reducing the possibility of wheel breakage. Flanges for cut-off wheels
may be different from grinding wheel flanges .
Do not use worn down wheels from larger power tools.
Wheel intended for larger power tool is not suitable for the higher speed of a smaller tool and may burst.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION (continued)
The machine is intended to do the final sharpening on skate blades (flat or hollow).
This is done by manually moving the skate blade (mounted in a holder) against a suitably dressed, rotating grinding
wheel. The open construction of the machine allows for constant and easy supervision of the sharpening process.
A bottom frame carries a modified electric motor and a moving table construction. The bottom frame must be kept
horizontal. The electric motor is attached to a bottom plate. It is intended that the bottom plate be kept horizontal.
The axle of the electric motor will then be vertical. On the axle the following items are mounted in this order:
a flange , a grinding wheel , a flange washer, a balancing ring and a fastening nut. This is all partially covered by a
protective cover. The "lower table construction " carries the "upper table" which in its turn carries a "skate holder".
1. The Locking device can be used to fasten the tables during transport to protect the machine.
Attach or dismount as described later in this manual.
2a. The lower table construction is used as a base to move the skate holder in the left and right direction.
2b. The upper table is used as a base to move the skate holder inwards and outwards.
3. The Extractor tube is intended to collect sparks and other debris created when grinding and dressing.
Fasten it onto the bottom frame with the wing nut in the angle you prefer; then attach a suitable dust extractor.
4a. The Adjusting device is used to get the hollowness on your skate centered by controlling the vertical position
of the skate holder.
4b. The Scale wheel ranges from 2.5 - 4.2 mm and 7.S - S.2 mm.
Turn it to the skate blade thickness value to center the hollow sharpening underneath the skate.
5. The Power switch is used to turn the machine on and off.
6. The Grinding wheel rotates counter-clockwise and is used to sharpen the skate blade.
Use grinding wheel S-2/HP70, S-2/ME60, S-2/KSO or S-2/60 .
7. The Protective cover is a guard that protects if a grinding wheel would break. It also prevents sparks from
spreading. The protective cover is fastened by three top nuts.
Sa . The Pivot device is used with a diamond to dress the grinding wheel for hollow sharpening.
Use the nut to fasten the diamond.
Sb. Use diamond O-SO or SO-SO.
Sc. The Ruler (scale in mm/inch.) is used when measuring on the pivot device. Measure from the head of the
diamond screw to the pivot; the distance gives the hollowness obtained on your skate. See "AOJUSTMENTS".
Sd . The Adjusting screw is used to move the pivot device inwards or outwards.
This is done by screwing it clockwise (outwards) or counter clockwise (inwards).

CAUTION!
IF POSSIBLE, ALWAYS DISCONNECT THE SKATE SHARPENING
MACHINE FROM THE POWER SOURCE BEFORE MAKING ADJUSTMENTS.
Place the machine on a stable, level surface.
Dismount the transport locking device (1) and remount it in the same part (in the hole on the side of the machine).
The machine comes with a grinding wheel mounted and balanced. Refer to MAINTENANCE: HOW TO CHANGE
AND BALANCE THE GRINDING WHEEL (on page 12) if you want to replace or balance the grinding wheel.
The grinding wheel and the diamond are adjusted for a hollow radius of 20 mm when delivered from SSM Produkt
AB. Refer to OPERATION: ADJUSTMENTS (on page 9) if you want to change the radius.
MAKE SURE THAT NO DIAMOND IS TOUCHING THE GRINDING WHEEL WHEN YOU START THE MACHINE.
If necessary, reposition the diamonds outwards. For diamond (9b), screw it directly. For diamond (8b), screw on the
adjusting screw (8d).
MAKE SURE THAT THE HOLDER IS NOT TOUCHING THE GRINDING WHEEL WHEN YOU START THE
MACHINE. Follow the instructions under OPERATION: ADJUSTMENTS (on page 9) to reposition the skate holder if
necessary.
Attach a proper dust extractor to the extractor tube (3). This will reduce the amount of sparks and debris. For more
complete protection, wear a suitable face mask covering mouth and nose.
Make sure you wear protection glasses and hearing protection when you use the machine.
OPERATION
ADJUSTMENTS before sharpening
Balancing grinding wheel
If necessary, exchange the grinding wheel. Balance it if needed. (See
MAINTENANCE: HOW TO CHANGE AND BALANCE THE GRINDING WHEEL .)
Adjust the adjusting device on the holder
To get the sharpening centered underneath the skate blade you need to adjust the
height of the adjusting device (4a). Measure the skate blade width and turn the
scale wheel to that measurement (4b). The sharpening will now be centered.
(In the image the device is set at 2.8 mm.)
Please note that the lower jaw on the skate holder will not follow the
movement of the adjusting device. You need to manually push it down after
you have turned the scale wheel to a wider skate blade width.
When turning it to a narrower skate blade width the lower jaw will follow.
Dressing the grinding wheel
To dress for hollowness, use diamond (8b) in the pivot device (8a). You adjust the hollowness by screwing the
diamond in or out until you reach the correct position. You use the ruler (8c) to measure from inside the head of the
diamond screw (must be a 0-80 or a SD-80) to the pivot device (see Fig. A). The usable limits are 8 to 38 mm.
Secure the diamond in place by tightening the nut on the diamond screw.
As you dress the grinding wheel, it is consumed and gets smaller. Use the adjusting screw (8d) to move the whole
assembly with the pivot device. Move in small amounts, at the same time turning the pivot device up and down until a
few times when dressing occurs. The dressing should be performed gently, so as not to damage diamond or grinding
wheel.
To dress flat, use diamond (9b). Screw the diamond inwards in small amounts, at the same time turning the flat
surface device (9a), so that its diamond moves up and down past the grinding wheel. The last few movements should
give dressing. Dress gently.
The radius of hollow is set at 25 mm.
OPERATION (continued)
HOW TO CHECK IF THE HOLLOWNESS IS CENTERED
It is important that you get the hollowness centered on the blade. With the adjusting device the hollowness will always
be centered if you turn it to the same number as the skate blade width (as long as the skate blade is straight).
An easy way of checking if the sharpening is centered is to use the BEC, Blade Edge Checker (check the separate
BEC instruction paper how to use it).
In case you need to adjust the settings of the machine, please contact us and we will guide you.
HOW TO ADJUST THE FLAT SURFACE DEVICE
The flat surface device comes with correct
setting from the factory. If necessary, it can
be adjusted by loosening the lock screw and
correcting the angle using the adjustment
screw.
You check for correctness of the angle
between the sharpened flat surface and the
two sides of the skate blade as follows:
Dress the grinding wheel flat. The sharpen
a skate. Use a BEC (Blade Edge Checker)
to see if the flat surface is perpendicular to
the two sides of the blade. The scales of the
BEC indicate if the adjustment is correct or
not. The scales also indicate the amount of
possible error, and thus how much
readjustment would be necessary.
After readjustment check again!
OPERATION (continued)
SHARPENING THE SKATE (advice)
Dress grinding wheel
Connect the machine to the power source and start it (using the power switch 5). Use the diamond (8b or 9b) to dress
the grinding wheel so that it will give the desired shape to the blade (flat or with desired hollowness).
If the grinding wheel feels blunt, you should dress it even if the shape is not to be changed.
Hollow sharpening: Ice hockey skates and Figure skates
Flat sharpening: Bandy skates and Touring skates
Correct any damage on the skate blade
Check the skate blade for damage. If massive damage is found,
use a whetstone to get the blade even on the sides.
Then fasten the skate in the skate holder.
Sharpen it at least twice with constant pressure applied
against the grinding wheel, see figure:
p
x
Q
When sharpening, keep the skate blade directed along a
straight line (PQ in the figure). Move the blade forwards and
backwards in the same direction as the arrows indicate.
The two "X" points in the figure marks where the blade starts to turn away from the
grinding wheel. Start the sharpening movement "in the air" outside an X-point. Then make a smooth contact with the
grinding wheel. At the other X-point the skate will turn away from the grinding wheel. Continue the movement a bit
without having contact with the grinding wheel before turning back and doing the movement in the other direction.
Check for any remaining damage. If damage is found, repeat the sharpening until all damage or wear is gone.
Final sharpening
When no damage remains on the skate blade, sharpen the whole blade including the round ends slowly and smoothly.
Use light pressure to get a better micro finish and to avoid removing too much material from the round edges. Perform
the movement as shown below in one continuous sequence. The tables can be moved in the X and Z direction and
cannot be rotated.
Finish
Use a flat whetstone approximately twice on each side of the blade to remove any abrasive wounds.
ATTENTION!
00 not move the skate too slowly against the grinding wheel and do not apply too much pressure against it.
The skate blade may be "burnt" because too much heat is generated locally!
When sharpening, keep your hands on the skate holder. 00 not let the skate carry the weight of your hands.
Otherwise the skate blade will tilt from the horizontal plane.

1. First test the grinding wheel for cracks. Hold the wheel on a finger (through the center hole) and gently tap on it.
By listening to the sound you can check whether the wheel contains cracks.
Remove the protective cover, the nut, the balancing ring , the flange washer and the old grinding wheel.
(To avoid wobbling of the grinding wheel, remember to thoroughly clean flange, flange washer and grinding wheel
mounting surface before mounting .)
Then put the new grinding wheel on top of the flange. Put the flange washer and then the balancing ring on top
(in the neutral position , i.e. centered with the mark point in the 12 o'clock direction).
Fasten the nut with the grinding wheel having some selected mark (selected by you) in the 12 o'clock direction.
Start the engine and dress the grinding wheel with one of the diamonds.
Don't forget to have the protective cover on! If the grinding wheel vibrates, adjust using the following scheme.
(The grinding wheel will impart vibrations to the whole machine. They are most easily felt at the end of the guide
arm at the skate holder.)
2. Stop the engine and direct the grinding wheel in the 12 o'clock direction . Loosen the nut and move the balancing
ring somewhat in the 6 o'clock direction (i.e. an eccentric position).
Fasten the nut and restart the engine. Remember how much the grinding wheel vibrates (Fig. B).
3. Do as in step 2, but with the mark point in the 9 o'clock, 6 o'clock and 3 o'clock directions.
The amount of eccentricity of the balancing ring should be kept the same (Figs. C, 0 , E).
4. If there are fewer vibrations in some direction , turn the balancing ring so that its mark point has that direction .
If two directions give fewer vibrations than the others, put the mark point direction between the two.
Then fasten the grinding wheel with the balancing ring adjusted. Start the engine and dress the grinding wheel.
If the grinding wheel still vibrates, make a precision adjustment.
5. If a precision adjustment is needed , move the balancing ring in small amounts to be more centered or more
eccentric or change the direction of its mark point slightly. Start the engine, dress the grinding wheel and test
if the vibrations lessen . This is an iterative procedure.
It should be possible to adjust until the vibrations practically disappear.
MAINTENANCE (continued)
SERVICE
If the machine is used correctly and only for sharpening skates then service is seldom needed . However, the grinding
wheel and diamonds should regularly be replaced. The grinding wheel should be replaced when the distance between
its outer diameter and the front edge of the protective cover has decreased to approximately 10 mm. (When the
diameter of the grinding wheel goes below 120 mm, the grinding wheel should be replaced to give a good result.)
To retain the capacity of the machine and to continue to get a good result, always keep the machine clean .
Clean the outside. Remove dust with a soft brush if needed.
WARNING! A complete service should always be performed by a qualified technician. When performing maintenance
yourself (e.g. replacing grinding wheel or diamonds) ensure that the electric plug is disconnected. To avoid danger,
work on electrical parts should always be done by a qualified technician.
For power tools with type Y attachment: if the replacement of the supply cord is necessary, this has to be done by the
manufacturer or his agent in order to avoid a safety hazard .
