SWIX Alpine Tuning Kit for only $63. Seems like a good deal.
I've never done my own tuning, so maybe my perspective is off, but it looks like the vices aren't made for holding the entire width of a ski (even a narrow one). To me, it looks like they would hold a ski on edge, so it is thickness that matters...correct me if I am wrong.
|Looks that way to me too. I suppose to work on the basses you are just supposed to let the skis rest there....?|
These vices will hold a ski on its side for edge work, on you can lay a ski upside down on top of them for waxing.
They do not, however, hold the ski in place while upside down, like this one:
which may cause slippage during scrapeage.
Nonetheless, I feel like this is a great deal for these vises since they tend to be rather expensive on their own, and they come with a file and guide. Backcountry outlet offers this kit for 109.17, so the Tramdock deal seems pretty good to me.
