Read the Instructions Manual featured on the next page carefully! Continue from here
after that.
Setup and sharpening:
A. Place the machine on a flat and steady workbench with a height between 80 and 100 cm.
B. Make sure that your ear, eye and breathing protection gear is being worn correctly!
C. Make sure that the installed grinding wheel has the hollow radius you wish to receive by
opening the grinding wheel door and look on the text on it .(if it has not, change it
according to the instructions manual on the next page).
D. Plug in the power cord.
E. Clamp the skate in the slot on the top of the machine using the quick-release handle, and
make sure that the blade reaches below the clamp-steels .You can to this by looking inside
the grinding wheel door.
F. If you are about to sharpen figure skates or long-distance skates also make sure that the
wheel is made for this type of sharpening. The wheel should be 60 mm in cross section, and
the text on it should say either “FIG” or “BANDY”. To sharpen figure skates you must also
have a type of device to measure in the height of the skate for the grinding wheel will miss
the toe picks. How to do this is featured on the last page.
G. Now put the grinding wheel door back on. Attach the vacuum cleaner, turn it on, Turn
the machines power switch on and press the start button the amount of cycles you wish the
machine to run.
H. When the machine has stopped grinding, turn it OFF, release the quick-release handle
and take the skate out, look on the result, and if it is satisfying, repeat the same procedure
with your next skate, if it is not, sharpen it again until you have achieved a satisfying result.
After sharpening unplug the power cord. Open the grinding wheel door and clean the
machine inside with a vacuum cleaner or with a magnetic stick. Clean the machine after
use, and always before transport.
IMPORTANT! Machine’s life time is directly reflected to the maintenance of the
machine. Always lock the machines locks on both ends when transporting. Disconnect
the power cord before changing the grinding wheel.
Never start the machine without a skate.

Description of the machine: ice skate sharpener
Safety Information
• ProSharp SkatePal-Pro² may only be used for sharpening skates.
• Only the original ProSharp EP- grinding wheels are to be used in the machine.
• No modifications or design changes are allowed.
• All operators must read and understand instructions regarding operation and maintenance contained
in this manual, before using the machine.
• Operators under 18 years of age are NOT allowed to use the machine.
• Before using the machine, ensure there are no damages caused, for example, during transport.
• The SkatePal is equipped with grinding tools which may cause injury.
• The operator must stand in front of the machine.
• Children and others than the machine operator must be kept away from the machine at a safe
distance of 2 meters.
• The operator may never bend over or place hands on the machine during skate sharpening.
• Grinding dust can escape from the machine; therefore the operator must wear protective eyewear and
breathing protection when machine is in use. It is also highly recommended to use ear protection, when
the machines sound-level during sharpening due to differences in the skate-steels, can exceed beyond
pleasant level, or in worst case harm your hearing.
• Connect the power cord, 1-phase, 100-240 volt, 50 — 60 Hz.
• The machine must be placed on a flat, steady work bench with a height between 80 to 100 cm.
• Control and clean the machine daily after the usage and always after every 30 pairs of skates
• Remove the plug before carrying out any adjustment, servicing or maintenance.
2. Choose the sharpening cycles from 1 to 5 by quickly pushing the start button. 1 push is worth of 1
cycle and 5 pushes are worth of 5 cycles. Grinding is finished when the wheel is back in the start
position and the motor has stopped. Push the start button once during sharpening = reset/stop.
3. Check the sharpening result on the skate blade. (if not perfect, repeat the sharpening)
Emergency stop
Push once the start button when the motor is doing the first half-cycle (going to left). Grinding will stop
and the wheel comes back to the home position. One push after the first half-cycle (going to right)
resets counter and takes the wheel back to start position after the cycle is finished. Two pushes after
the first half-cycle will stop the grinding and takes the wheel back to home position.
Hollow settings and changing of the grinding wheel
Changing of the SkatePal EP- grinding wheel should be done only when the power cord is
1. Choose a grinding wheel with a hollow from 3XS to 2XL. It correlates to a hollow radius from 7mm
hollow = XXS (7mm) to 28mm =2XL (28mm) to entirely flat = XX. Other radius of hollows can be
ordered from ProSharp with an 8 weeks delivery time.
2. Open the grinding wheel door; release the grinding wheel thumbscrew by turning to the left. Remove
the wheel and replace it with another wheel. Return the thumbscrew and tighten it gently by turning to
the right.
Adjusting the grinding wheel sideways
Adjust the grinding wheel in small steps, 1/8 round at the time. An easy way of changing position of the
grinding wheel is to first drive the wheel to the left, so you get more room to adjust the screw. To do
this, push start button for five seconds and keep the button down. Wheel will start go to the left without
grinding. Once you let go off of the start button, the wheel will stop. (If you want the wheel even further
left, push the button again for five seconds and repeat previous steps). Push once more and the wheel
will come back to the home position
Adjusting of the centering of the grinding wheel can be done by screwing the thumb screw.
Clockwise moves the wheel towards you and anti-clockwise moves the wheel from you. The
thumb-screw can be found beside the grinding wheel, see picture below.
After grinding:
Unplug the power cord. Clean the machine from dust with a dust cleaner or you can also use a magnetic stick.
Every B64 wheel lasts around 1000~ cycles
Change the grinding wheel according to the instructions. It is worn out when it is no longer taking
away material from the steel and/or gives an unsatisfying result.
After 1-3 years or around 10,000~ cycles
Service should be made by an authorized service technician.
Sharpening of skates
1. Clamp the skate into the middle, sideways, of the skate holder, always with the heel of the skate
placed towards the grinding wheel.

17. Keep work area clear- Cluttered areas and benches invite injuries.
18. Use right tool- Do not use the tool for purpose not intended.
Take the grinding wheel door off and make sure that the smaller 60 mm wheel is installed, it
ut the lowest spike in
the bridge, then clamp the skate firmly, make sure it is not easily moved, look inside the machine
to make sure that the heel sits around 2-3 mm below the clamping steel, that way it will not
damage the clamping steels, and not round the heel of the skate. Then carefully take away the
toe protector device, press and hold the start/stop button, and it will drive the grinding wheel
towards the toe picks without the grinding wheel spinning. This will allow you to make sure that
the grinding wheel will miss the toe picks, and also at what point it will hit the heel of the skate,
when you release the button it will stop, and when you push again, it will return to start position,
it will take some adjustment before you can obtain a satisfying result so please be patient, after
you have found the correct setting it will not be necessary to adjust it anymore for your SkatePal ,
so make sure you have tightened the nuts firmly. When you are ready to start sharpening
continue to the first page. A tip is to start by using an old skate, that way you will not take the risk
of damaging more expensive skates.
