I am getting a snowboard setup soon, and I want to know about what basic tools that I should get. I have read the stickies and searched on the forum, and decided that I would bring it to the shop for a once a season tune-up. But I want to get some basic tuning tools to keep my edges sharp.
On the Stickies, Guide to Tuning and Tuning Videos. I notice that both had the Swix Base Edger File Guide, it's not on the Swix website anymore.
What quick sharpening tool should I get? Can someone post a link to one?
I was thinking of getting
2.file holder (would I be able to do the quick sharpen with these 2 tools, or will I need an actual dedicated like the Swix Edger Comp)
4.gummi stone (soft or hard)
Or is this more for beveling and detuning? please help me add or take out tools, I just want to do a basic tuning and quick sharpen. Are the diamond filer and gummi stone used for the same purpose in this case, that I only need one?
What tool and brand do you have in your tuning kit?
I think I would only need midrange brands, I know Swix is a top brand that professionals use, but what are some other quality ones, I don't need pro tuning equipment, and want the best bang for my buck.
How's this DAKINE : EDGE TUNER TOOL
, and how does it work, does it sharpen both the base and side edge? I want a tool that is versatile so I can use it on my board, as well as my buddies, ranging bevels of 0-2 degrees base and side bevels, and 88-90 degree corners. The list of tools in the sticky, seems like it's only for a certain degree base edge and certain degree for the side edge, not very versatile.
