If the base bevel is 1 degree, that one degree is in relation to the ski base, this much I know. However, if the side edge angle is 1 degree as well is that in relation to the base or to the base edge bevel?
I use a 1 degree Swix base beveler and use a 91 degree SVST side edge beveler. I have shims for .5 degrees and 2 degrees.
My goal is to have a 1 degree base and to be able to tune skis with a 1 degree edge bevel as well as those with a 3 degree edge angle.
