if so how? Will it mess up the skate?

It doesn't sound like it would work to me, but what would you be baking it in? Conventional oven?, or do you have your own skate bake oven?

I have been told two things, each by a fairly authoritative source...
1. conventional oven, 10 minutes at 275 degrees approximates a skate oven...
2. conventional oven cannot produce the effect of the skate oven in any way, shape, or form...
I say, go for it, as above, watch out for the metal parts, and hey, let us know how it worked...I can't believe that you could harm the skate, but I don't have anything to back that up...

I just got mine baked in a skate oven and just wondered if it would work in a conventional oven. I just got a pair of tour G40's and love them. Much better than missions.

You can bake them at home...I don't think I would even try to though.

Find an oven, I have heard very bad things from people by doing it at homw, stuff like it had relativly no effect on them. Anyways there is a reason why the skate bake ovens are different than conventional ovens. More in likely there should be one close to you, start calling local ice rinks, they usually have one.
Little life experience: I had just purchased a pair of new 945 CCM's for my elder son and he decided to bake them - turned the oven up to 300 deg. and decided to lie down and wait. Ten hours later his size 12's would be hard pressed to fit a size 8. Brand new - when they were still $300.00+
Ovens are pretty common in most rink proshops now (ice anyway)- let the people who should know how - do it.

All the ice rinks close to me have ovens, so there should defienty be one near you.

I recently baked a pair at home. They didn't work quite as well as my last pair that I had baked in a skate oven, but it still worked and cut down on my break in time... www..epuck.com has an article on it with directions and that is what I used to do it. All in all, it worked well enough for me to do it again.
