Can anyone tell me what tool do you use to grind the shell in the toe area of the ski boots?
I have a Dremel but it won't fit inside the boot with the battery.
Thanks in advance
Good luck with that tact! While you may be able to fit the head of the dremel flex tool into the toe area, the size of the head (too small) and the power of the dremel (too little) will present a real challenge in producing an acceptable result. A Foredom tool used in the hands of a skilled boot fitter with a larger ball will produce a much better result.
A foredom tool with appropriate attachments will cost you a few hundred dollars. The practice you will need to do a good job will take a couple practice shells and a couple hours. The piece of mind to pay a boot fitter $20 to do it right?......well $20!
with Bud on this one, i have seen too many trashed shells being ground out with a hobby sized dremmel, the head size will go streight through the boot if you apply any pressure...normally we use a 7/8" or 1" carbide burr to cut the toe box and even then you have to be careful (i always have a slightly blunt burr in the box for the toe box of boots
