SVST Edge tool -

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Need to purchase an edge beveler tool. Based on the recommendations from an earlier thread I'm interested in one of the SVST tools.  Their website lists:

 

"The Aluminum Pro Edge Beveler with Stainless Plate is great for shop or home tuning,  Wear plate offers extended durability."

 

and 

 

"The Aluminum Pro Edge Bevelerwithout Stainless is great for those home tuners who want to sharpen their own edges."

 

Is it worth it to pay the $10 extra for the stainless plate?  (I've heard people have had issues with the stainless plate delaminating from the tool).

 

I'll be tuning my own skis, my wife and daughter's skis and random friends.

 

Thanks,

 

Monti

I've had a basic SVST side edge bevel guide for years and see no sign of it wearing. I think that if you're doing dozens of skis a day every day, the stainless plate might be of value.

Do you understand that this device is for the side of the edge, and not the base surface of the edge? I use their base edge bevel guide also: http://www.race-werks.com/svst-the-final-cut-base-edge-beveling-tool/

I use the all aluminum one.  I tune at least four pairs of skis every two weeks.  This is my fourth season doing so.  I don't see any wear.  I note that the tool rides on a soft smooth waxed surface.

but it doesnt..... you get much more wear where it contacts the edge, though it is not across that whole glide plate.  If you really want to be safe, go for the swix roller pro edgeguide.

OK, I'll bite...

 

 

Show me where this tool is in contact with the ski edge.
