of air fitting that you could want. Wholesale prices too. I guess these could be used as small water pipe fitting also. I

i gave my board the shop for a 1degree bevel... what is the diff if the bevel was made on base edge or side edge?

base edge i understand brings it up off the snow and decreases liklihood of catching an edge... but what is the point of the side edge bevel?

What does a dry base look like and how do I know if I should wax again? I read through all of the posts in this thread and couldn't find any info on how to spot a dry base. If my base is slightly shiny, is that a thin layer of wax or just really polished wood?

well your base shouldnt be wood unless you are riding a home made board. but the shininess is possibly a thin layer of wax. dry base is usually opaque or white in color

Dry base' looks similar to chapped lips. The more you wax the board the better for the base.

Hmmm thats a good one.. It should be obvious. Chk along the edges, this is where the wax will be depleted first. The base will appear to be dry..ie chapped base ha ha...When your base is dry the P-tex (base material) shrinks due to lack of wax, so mosturize your base and keep it loaded with wax, and your board will slide and glide effortlessly and you will be happy camper..

2 questions

1. The aforementioned question on Simple Green...would that work as a base cleaner? Any input appreciated

2. When I hot wax my board i get wax scrapings on the topsheet when i go to adjust the board. Is there anything anyone would recommend to remove these tricky, sticky little scrapings and their residue?

Thanks!!
