I have been buying used skiis for months now and i am ready to start building.. I am wondering about the edges rusting after i build the chairs and it ruining the look of them later.. Any suggestions on how to prevent the edges from rusting???
What about the edges rusting????
Keep a rag, sponge, or paper towel handy in the rig along with some 3 in 1 brand oil, mineral oil, or least favorable but definetly works the good ol wd-40. Wipe edges at end of day, careful to not get on the base as it could strip wax/finish.

The katana (officer's sword) my father brought home from Japan in 46 is still razor sharp and without a hint of rust, despite being kept in a Michigan basement and then garage for the last 67 years. Good steel. Maybe the same traditional Japanese technology should be applied to ski edges. Might be pricey though, and the wait for a pair of skis might be a couple of years.
