I don't know about that.  Works for me every time!  To each his own.

Jacques, FWIW, I've watched most of your videos. When I started buying tools to tune my own skis, I did a lot of research. Your videos are long, but they're the most informative I could find. They for sure helped me! I didn't make the connection between the videos and who created them until I saw your comments on this tread. Thanks!!

 ^^^^^^^ EXACTLY THIS! I love EpicSki, but I still never cease to be amazed by how many people get their drawers in a wad about ridiculous stuff. "Oh my gosh, that isn't 100% totally true and flat, you're going to ruin your skis and suffer catastrophic damage!"........ fear mongering much? For those of us that just enjoy skiing, and like to be self sufficient, the stuff Jacques posts is great learning material. I realize there are about 1000 ways to do everything, but sheesh, c'mon guys...

I'm glad the videos helped you.  There is no profit in it for me.  It's just free sharing.  I made them long with no script talking to convey as much info as I could.  All my stuff is based on hand work. No machines.  I have not base ground a ski in years.  Don't let all the "must be perfect flat" stuff worry you!   Thanks for your kind comment.

That's honestly so minor, don't even worry about it. Wax it and ski them.
