New Skate Sharpening Machine Add-on Allows Owners to Convert Conventional Machines, Dress the Grinding Wheel with Revolutionary Flat Bottom V KINGSVILLE, Ontario--(Business Wire)-- Blackstone Sports, manufacturer of the first skate sharpening machine to directly enhance a skater`s performance on the ice, today unveiled its Convertible Spinner System - a skate sharpening machine add-on that will allow team dealers and equipment managers worldwide the ability to add Blackstone`s Flat Bottom V (FBV) technology to competing machines. Blackstone`s FBV technology revolutionizes conventional shaping options for blades by creating a flat bottom sharpening that maintains tiny 'fangs' on each edge of the blade, allowing for a freer glide while still providing bite on turns and stops. With the Convertible Spinner System, any machine owner can now convert existing dressing systems on virtually all skate sharpeners with the FBV shape. The Convertible Spinner System features Blackstone`s patent-pending spinner system mounted on a movable magnetic stand. The tool is placed in front of the grinding stone, where the magnet is engaged and a feed screw places the spinner into the grinding wheel and dresses the stone with the patented FBV shape. "The Convertible Spinner System will expand the reach of the Flat Bottom V and make it a technology available to the masses," said Blackstone Co-Founder and Vice President Steve Wilson. "And what`s more, we`ve offered a cost effective alternative for dealers and equipment managers - rather than buying a brand new machine we`ve made it possible to convert your existing machine at a fraction of the cost." The Convertible Spinner System is compatible with steel and non-steel surfaces and retails for $1,700 at BlackstoneSport.com.
