After consuming and absorbing as much as I am able from posts and vids I am in the process of putting together my first tuning kit.
I have a pretty good sense of what I need but have a question about the use of diamond stones in place of panzer or other rough cut files.
All my skis have a 1/3 bevel set at the shop. Assuming that I do not want to change that by file, can I dispense with the purchase of files and use Moonflex from 100 to 1500 grits as the sole tool for maintenance and touch -up. I assume that the finer grits would work in the absence of any rock or other damage. But if I have to fix this, especially on the base edge, will the 100/200 Moonstones have sufficient cutting power? I understand that the base edge should be left alone to the extent possible so as not to change it. As a newbie I would prefer to use a cutting tool that is less robust, but not if it is too feeble to do the job.I would use the files in the bottom and side guides to preserve the angles.
Finally, once I work through from the 100 grit up to 1500 Moonflex files, and then knock off any burs with a blue gummy, is there anything more to be done? I have read that some use an Arkansas stone for final pass.
