I have a 5/8 hollow and my buddy has a ½ “ hollow. Do we have to change inserts?
NO, EDGE AGAIN™ “TUSK” technology is designed to follow the hollow or profile that you have on your blade. The EDGE AGAIN™ Patented tusk technology micro files the tips of all 4 sides at the same time to restore 2 perfect edges.
Will it sharpen a Flat Bottom V profile?
Yes, our EDGE AGAIN™ technology only touches the outside points.
Will it work on my "T" Blades?
Yes, Even though it was not designed to sharpen “T” Blades, EDGE AGAIN™ found that it does work!! You just have to run the unit from both directions to hit the one section in the middle of the blade. (There’s some interference from the plastic molding around the blade.)
How long do I run it on my blade?
It all depends on the severity of the trauma or if you just want to touch up your skate before you use them. A 15 sec. interval will be sufficient for a touch up. If you have a large trauma you may have to run up to 3, 30 sec. intervals.
How long will a "Tusk" (Insert) last before I need to change it?
It all depends on cycle times (times used and how much trauma is on blade). EDGE AGAIN™ recommend that you replace the “Tusk” when it has been used on around 25-30 pairs of skates. You will feel and hear the resistance diminish, as the diamond coating wears and does not have as much bite or micro filing affect.
Can I damage my skate in any way by using this product?
NO!! The unit is designed so it is simple to use. If the unit is not running parallel to the blade or you apply to much down ward pressure it will cause it to bind and stall therefore eliminating any chance of you damaging an edge.
Does it matter which way I run the unit on my skate?
No, you can hold the unit however it feels comfortable in your hand and run it in either direction.
How long does a charge last?
Approximately 50 cycles. Our LED light indicator will give you a early warning signal.
Do I have to run a stone along my blade after I use the Edge Again?
No you do not. Our patented diamond coated “Tusk” technology micro files both inner and OUTER edges. The “Tusk” actually runs simultaneously on the outside and inside removing any burrs.
