I just started putting together a kit for home tuning.
Here's what i have on the way, right now I'm just focusing on waxing but I definitely need to fix some edges sooner or later on my skis.
Supplies from Artech:
|Product Name||Part No.||Quantity||Item Price||Total Price|
Swix Fiberlene: Small
FK SKS Hook Brake Retainers: 1 Pair
ARTECH Wax Scraper: Thick (Notched)
Swix Hydrocarbon Wax: CH6 Blue 180 gram Package
Swix Hydrocarbon Wax: CH7 Violet 180 grams Package
Swix Hydrocarbon Wax: CH8 Red 180 gram Package
I also have this starter kit
I'll primarily be working on my skis: Volkl Mantra 184s (94 mm underfoot) and my gf's Dynastar Legend Eden 152.
I went with the work bench above because it seemed sturdier than the Swix ones and as large as the smallest Swix one here:
Now I'm concerned about the table's length for tuning my 184s.
Can someone give some guidance for how big a table edge surface I would need to work on 184 cm skis securely in the vise I've selected?
I'm sure I can rig something up on top of the bench I selected to make it a bit longer. Even this high-end table from Holmenkol is not that much wider than my starting point.
