magne-traction maintanance

Tried to search the forums but didn't find anything. Magne-traction is pretty exotic here, and i scratched and dented my TRS. A friend of mine working in a shop said he can't run that through the machine, and this is in Italy where i've seen people ride lib and gnu. I don't even want to consider giving it to a shop in the craphole where i live. Is getting the edge tool for magne enough to sharpen the edge and even it out a bit? I could still give the board to the shop to have the base filled?

You can run the damn thing on the machine. All last season I'd tune Mag boards on my little Grindrite without any issue it just takes a bit more time.

When i first tried my TRS it was in december in vars/risoul resort in france. Icy compact, and it was raining for a few days before i arrived. There was one part, and it was on the most mellow run there (green) where people would just fall down like it was a benny hill sketch. I went over, but it was far from turning ice into powder. I still skidded.

Anyway, it's not so much for the edge hold, but the damage. Dunno if it's a good idea anyway. I'm thinking of just giving the board to the shop to have the holes filled and waxed but tell them to leave the edges alone.

you should use a diamond file to debur the damage, then you can just use an tuning tool and or base tool with a file. I have a dakine one, but one ball Jay makes a smaller one specifically for magnetraction. I can get by with my dakine no probs. The reason for the diamond file is when you scratch the steel edge it gets case hardened. The file will have a tough time with that, but the diamond file will make short work of it.
