Edge Bevels

Snowolf, maybe you can answer this one.


I keep seeing post, where you say to have a shop do your base bevel. Do you mean not to try and do your base bevel at home no matter what, or not to do it Freehand. But with a file guide, it would be ok to attempt?


I bought an Edge Tuner that will do side and base bevels. But I don't want to mess up the base bevel if I shouldn't use it on my board.

Dude, for the sake of a few bucks at the shop, get your ride done by a pro with the proper machines. Yes you can do it, but theres nothin like a professional tune.

make sure you get a good bevel guide to check those angles
or just trust that your file guide is accurate
