Also how come you don't have the ski on it's side while tuning the sides?
Does your bench not allow that?
| nope. I have a homemade bench that I made using a sawhorse and this other thing, like a sawhorse, that is adjustable and allows you to hold things inbetween. <megasnip> I just think of all the other cool tuning stuff I could buy.
I'm all for homemade vises! (Vices too I have, I'll send you some, eh?). Your bench sounds like my old Black&Decker Workmate setup.
Scalce likes to have the ski on edge so as to minimise the base pressure he applies through the tuner while side-beveling. I like the edge-clamp-thing just for being able to skyve the edges and actually see the results. It is all one, really, for the level of work you're explaining.
Until you try to work on snowboards. (eeew.) Let's just pretend I said "monoskis", shall we?
Remember: if you can tuck, it's a ski.
- Your blue DMT stone is showing a bit of wear. Time to think 'bout a new one, m'be in a month or two?
- When I said "bluer flame" on the Ptex I meant: hold the Ptex candle closer to the ski so that the flame is blue and the flame almost crosses over and puddles on the ski base, with a scraper in the off-hand to scrape off any orange-flame ratty carbon bits when the candle gutters (you're not breathing on it, are you?)
I understand you're working with a delay camera. Keep up the good work.[ January 18, 2004, 01:40 PM: Message edited by: comprex ]
