What separates Wissota Skate Sharpeners from the competition?
The Wissota table is a massive 36 lb. iron foundry casting. It is carefully sized to be compact and easily portable, but NOT so small as to restrict the good inswing and outswing follow through needed for smooth, even grinding.
This casting is furnace treated to 1000 degrees to stress relieve it before we perform any machining. It is then ground and Starrett gauge tested to a precise flatness tolerance and surface polish. Our customers use simple automotive wax on our table top to provide unsurpassed glide. NO table top at any price point is more accurate or will out perform the gold standard of a precise cast iron table.
NO SKATE MOTOR ON ANY SKATE SHARPENER AT ANY PRICE POINT IS MORE ACCURATE OR WILL OUT PERFORM THE WISSOTA INDUSTRIAL DUTY MOTOR. In fact many of the most expensive machines are using CHINA motors…ask before you buy!
Every new Wissota Model 911 machine comes with our new Model 3-D "Three Dial" Skate Holder. We believe it to be the most RUGGED, ACCURATE, and USER FRIENDLY skate holder on the market today. The "Half Turn Quick Release" skate clamp has unsurpassed holding power and it is not fooled by skates with blades of different thickness. The upper and lower jaws are steel investment castings, and are designed so that skates can be checked in the holder for even edges without the need for a gauge (see "Learning about even edges"). The three dial positioning system is infinitely adjustable. The dials have magnetic labels that can be positioned to show a "ZERO" setting, and they can be locked in place. The dial labels allow an operator to keep VISUAL track of any changes. If a change becomes permanent, the labels can be repositioned to read ZERO at that new position. Easily replaceable felt wear pads are on the bottom of the skate holder.
The Wissota dressing system is precise, rigid, and infinitely adjustable. The diamond has ruler markings on it and a Wissota operator can instantly see what radius the machine is set for. Within seconds, and without tools or the need to buy extra dressers, the operator can change from one radius to ANY other.
Wissota sharpeners come with a detailed Operators manual which covers procedures, setups, theory, and principles of skate sharpening. Our instructional video can be seen anytime on our website's "Understanding Skate Sharpening" page. Both are written for the beginner and both are based specifically on the 911 machine. We have been perfecting our literature for over 63 years.
A dust collector hood is available as an accessory for easy hook up to a vacuum system.
The 911 skate sharpener is portable and is an ideal machine for hockey parents/teams (travel or otherwise). For serious travel teams, a deluxe Travel case is also available.
