Powdery scrapings could've been because of cold temp. Do it at room temp next time and see. Looks good anyway, go shred that shit

That looks about right. One piece of advice: scrape less rather than more. If you leave a little wax on the surface, it'll come off after a run or two. But if you scrape too much, you could damage your base depending on what scraper you're using.

So how about this:

At end of season I do a pretty thick wax job to keep my base from drying out.

Then I leave it unscraped.

Scraping is a pain, any reason at the start of the new season not to just go ride it and let the machine groomed granular scrape off the excess instead of doing it myself?

First day out the snow is usually pretty crappy anyways.

Thoughts?

If that worked, why would you ever scrape...

the dakine edge tuner is a side bevel file guide, the angled plastic goes on the base

to do the base bevel you will need a base bevel file guide
