Tognar Prima Kit

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Ok... I went whole hog and bought the Prima kit from Tognar.   Too many hours spent watching tuning videos I guess.

 

 

Here is the contents.   I'm buying an Toko T8 iron and some Hertel Super Sauce wax.   Is there anything else I should pick-up to put on my tuning bench (I'm building a vice)?

Tight fitting leather gloves to wear starting out to avoid this..
 

If your hand slips while filing or scraping this can happen.. Not mine, but I've had a few nicks here and there while tuning skis over the years.  Not my hand but I've known people that had similar happen..

That all sound great except for the wax choice!

... And more side edge and base bevel options. It's just money after all.

Whenever I do private hands-on tuning seminars, I buy all my students tuning gloves from the dollar store.  They sell thin rubber dipped gloves for $1.50, and offer good protection for the money.

 

One of the nicest tuning gloves out there are these - well worth the $20.

Nice gash.... I have some disposable work gloves floating around the shop so I'm covered there.    I think building some ski specific fixtures for a work bench is shortly in my future.

I have to admit I was sold by the name.   ;-)

I'm convinced that is why there are so many companies called Dominator ;)

I'm sure it is a sexual compensation type of thing.

Perhaps they could change the packaging so it would feel more familiar when crayoning...

LOL.... I hear the Secret Hot Sauce goes on easier than the Dominator.

Kev, I'm just saying I don't like the "H" wax.  Main thing is stick to one brand and you will figure it out as best as can be over time.  I guess my love of Dominator waxes is no secret!

 

Main kudos to you is you are going for it.  A good hand tune is something you will never regret learning to do.  One you get it down, you will never go back.  Best to you Kev!

Try Dominator Hyperzoom, I've been using that for over 15 years. Dominator is great stuff.

I have over 2/3rd's of a block of Super hot sauce that I bought years ago. I acturally used some the other day on a pair of skis I did for someone else. Its ok but it doesn't have the glide that Hyperzoom has.
