Default dakine edge tuner

just got the tuner. been trying to figure out which way to use it for base and side edge. i can't really tell how its angled just by looking at it, particularly the 88 degree one.

can anyone just give me a quick guide or else its just trial and error for now.


also for east coast ice freeriding what do you guys think for the angles. i was going to go with a 2degree edge and 90 base.

thanks.

Just a quick side question, are there any Canadian e-tailers out there that sell this tool? My sub-par local shops don't supply them and I can't seem to find it anywhere online.

i guess its just a side edge tuner, correct?

so would i just use the 88? to get the acute edge?

you can't use it on the base edge, only on the side edge.

i saw some vid's with people using it on both. is that alright?

also which side is the plastic supposed to sit. on the base or the topsheet? i can tell which way the 88 degrees is slanting

i think its made for base edge as well but its almost impossible to use on your base edge, let alone get a 2 degree bevel out of it..

Here's a video from dogfunk showing you how to use the edge tool.

YouTube - Dogfunk.com Snowboard Tuning Guide part 5 - sharpening edges

I have the same tool and I found it works ok on the side edge but not the base edge. When I used it once on the base edge it even scrap off some base material on my board so I stop using it on the base.

use it for the side edge. It sucks for the base edge. The number printed on the tool. If that is facing the edge that is the angle you are cutting. I like to use this tool for the side edge and the swix 2x2 for the base edge. The swix 2x2 also comes with a diamond file insert that you can pull out and use it too remove the burs like demonstrated in the video.

sounds good.

anyone know the factory edge angles on a NS SL-R? seems like the side edge is way more than 2 deg.
