Introduction to base/edge delamination repair video

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey gang, I thought I would jump on the how-to video bandwagon and put up my first vid of this nature.  And, um, I thought I'd start out with  a repair vid.  Since it was unscripted, I forgot to mention a couple of small points, but feel free to ask any questions, or post criticisms in this thread and/or youtube.  Thanks for watching.

       I have to admit that I had to watch this with no sound as my wife is watching some kind of chick flick or something :rules:. That being said, it looked virtually identical to my method (which I had to perform at the end of last season on a friend's Mantras) so I would naturally have to say, nice video Thumbs Up! Does this mean we'll see more? Crap, now we all have to post vids...:D

 

    P.s. Didn't I read one time that you were a tech? Just curious...

Thanks for posting this. Fortunately I don't need to do this but is good to know its here and looks easy enough to do.

Thanks guys, there's a lot if hand tune vids out there so I think I might do some more maintenance vids on subjects other than tuning.  I am trying to come up with topics that don't require any huge investments in tools, and focus on vid's for the DIY'er.

 

That said, the next topic's I am considering are:  how-to: install heli-coils/inserts, core shot repair, SL tip replacements, and pole cutting/bending to name a few.

 

Any suggestions for videos?

 

I am also thinking of doing some in-depth, informative vids on the how's and why's of ski tuning with machinery, since I have a nice personal collection of belt sanders, edge finishers and a stone grinder.  I would like to take the mystery out of machine tuning - so at the very least the consumer can identify what processes were involved when they take their gear to a shop for servicing.

 

Ya I have been a tech for a long time, and I still am working in the industry.  What started out as a passion for snow sports has turned out to be a career.  Doin it for the love and not the money - haha.

Regarding vids, I think any one of the topics you mentioned would be great.
