Reconditioning curling stones is performed using the same shapes and dimensions as new curling stones are made from. By re-cupping and re-grinding the entire bottom of the stone, we can return the stone to a like new condition. Using diamond tooling, the stones are re-ground by machine assuring that every stoned is finished the same as the one before. The stone is then polished to a high gloss finish and put through our pre-break in process before they leave our factory. The reconditioned stone will perform from the start without any “wear in” period.
Many clubs are starting to understand that properly scheduled maintenance of their curling stones is very important. In most cases curling clubs whose stones are extremely overdue for repairs will have to install Blue Hone inserts into their stones to renew them. There are a few things you must go over before you can decide whether your stones are fit to recondition. The first is the type of granite that your stones are made from. If it is the Keanie or Ailsa Craig Common Green granite stones, then reconditioning your stones might not be the best solution. If your stones are made of Trefor granite, then reconditioning them becomes an option. If your stones are made of Blue Hone granite, then reconditioning them is an acceptable choice providing that the strikebands are in good condition. Strikeband condition is an extremely important part in deciding if reconditioning is right for your stones.
