Diamond stone and Gummi stone: Shapening stones designed to deburr the edges after sharpening them with the edge tuner. The Gunni stone is very gentle and is used as a finishing touch to make your sharp edges very smooth.

Wax, Iron, Scraper, Scotch Brite, nylon and horse hair brush and felt cork: Tools needed to wax, scrape and polish your board.

For repairs, you will have a couple of Ptex candles to light and dribble the melted Ptex into gashes on your base. Clear and black for different bases.
