I have a pair of 2nd hand Atomic betacarv 9.20 ski's and I'd like to do the maintenance myself. I'm new to ski-tuning, so I have to purchase a couple of things. Last week I asked Atomic about the manufactured base & side angles, just to be sure that they're 1,3. But they sent me a copy of a fax that recommends to use 1,2-2.5. So 1 deg. base and 2 - 2.5 deg. side edge. Now I'm a bit puzzled about what side guide to purchase. I don't want to change the side edges angles, but I'm not sure what exact angle they currently have.
Is it ok to purchase a 2deg side edge guide? I prefer to buy a fixed angled guide after having read http://www.skituning101.com/2008/11/introduction.html carefully.
Also I'd like to buy two diamond stones (coarse and medium grit) and perhaps a base beveler. But should I also need a file then?
I'm not a racer or very experienced skier. So a 2 degrees side edge is fine with me.
Any advice is appreciated! Thanks,
