Edge tuning tool?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Looking for the best stone, or tool for my line prophets. I have successfully filled the base with ptex in the past, as well as waxed. So why not sharpen them myself.

A set of Diaface diamond stones and an edge guide from SVST is about as good as it gets. Add a surgical stone for removing the hanging burr. 

Check out SlideWright's website. They have them all in stock, and they support EpicSki.

For moonflex stones I use a 100 and 200, I don't bother with anything else. I bought spring clamps from home depot for $2.00 each. I do have a few SVST steel edge guide, 92 & 93. I have cut up a Panzor file into 1-2" pieces that I will clamp in front of the moonflex on the edge guide if I need to file.


You'll also want something like the SkiVisions base flatening tools. If you don't have flat bases you don't get a true edge angle.


You can get all that from Terry's site, slidewright.


Oh yea, you don't de-tune a shaped ski. Don't know if people still do that.

I use the 400 grit diamond stone the most.  It cuts less while sharpening than a 200 grit.  So less metal removal.  Higher grits are more ploishing in nature.


Be careful if you buy a single stone and use the Epic 10% discount because it will take the total below $30.  You won't get the $30 free shipping bonus unless you tip it back over $30.
