Sharpening Your Own Skis

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Dear Fellow Skiers --

After many years of neglect, I am sharpening up my down-hill technique so that I can do randonnee, back-country, off-piste, etc.

I am a skilled carpenter, and know a lot about sharpening tools, and I think I ought to be able to sharpen my own skis. However, I am having trouble finding a book or tutorial to guide me.

Can anyone provide me with the name of a book or a URL that provides comprehensive instructions in how to sharpen your own skis?

Many thanks,

Lou Hinman

Check out the race place. Their catalog is pretty nice and the video would be a good idea

Do a search on this message board and you will find out more then you want to know about tuning and where to find tuning guides and books. Someone even put together a picture tutorial on their website for instruction.

Hi Lou, you've come to the right place, I'm sure you'll get lots of replies to this.

There's a great video called Fast Tuning that I've got, I can't find it on the web for you, but it's excellent,

Tognar Toolworks has a lot of info on their website http://www.tognar.com

There's also tons of stuff on this forum, and lots of other online resources.

OK Bears, your turn, got any links for this guy?

Good luck!
