Yeah @cgeib
is near zero. Put a half on his ski and he's not happy.

Yeah, that is pretty much true. Mostly I like to give@Tog grief for detuning an entire ski smile.gif

Most of my skis I just polish the base edge after a grind. The side edge I back file to 4*, polish that, then hone the point at 3*.

Your math is a bit fuzzy on the boot / grabby thing... wink.gif

Flat filing, but only occasionally.

Also evened out by the all season tires on my Forester

Well, sure, as long as they're below 1/8" of tread depth remaining...

Most of the time in racing, we shaved tires to 4/32ds.

No doubt 4/32" is better for racing, but I think 1/8" will be fine on his all seasons.

I apologize. I suppose I should keep my math humor to appropriate venues.

No worries!

I've been told 5/4 of people have trouble with fractions redface.gif

Hmm... I think 87 percent of all statistics are made up on the spot.

How deep is the snow on your race track?

How deep is it to Lincoln's head on the penny? 2/32's?
That's when tires are baldish. Lincoln was not, due to JW Booth.

It's variable.

And it's not really even the depth of the tread... it's the bevel.

Don't even get me started on tire wax.
