tuning and detuning
hey guys. can anyone give more information on how to tune
and detune your board? even a nice vid maybe? welll anyway.
i think it'd be helpful to everyone if there was a thread
showing how and why you would tune or detune your board.
from what i've leaned(im hoping its right), you detune your
base edge so you wont catch a rail, and you tune your base
edge to make sharper turns. but i guess thats like a black
or white choice and you can only choose one so i think a
solution to this is adjusting the edge bevel. you would
make your edges look like this: sorry for the crude drawings
but i didnt want to do it to my board without make sure
the angles were right. so basically, you make the base edge
(the metal part the is inline with your base) tuned upward
so that instead of the base going flat into the metal, your
base would be flat and then when it starts going into the metal,
it goes slightly upward. then to adjust the side edge, you'd
tune that edge to the same angle you tuned the base edge
to. so it would still be a 90 degree edge, just raised
so you wont catch any edges. i probably made a mistake somewhere
here, so feel free to correct me and add your input.
