Default How do you fix deep nicks and dinge in the edge?

I've been really trashing my edges this year. Not sure if it's due to coverage or just being in the trees more, or both.

In any event I have several medium and deep dings. Deep I'd say means just over half way through the edge to the board.

How do you all deal with type of damage?

Debur and sharpen the edges and leave the nicks and dings there or do you try to file down to get rid of the nicks and dings?

I brought my rock board into a shop this year and had them just do an edge tune. However much they ground off was enough to get 99% of the big damage out.

Every time I tune at home I can't take off enough material to even it out, I think it's gotta go through the machine.

Also, this board had a base grind so they were taking metal off both sides of the edge.

I've had good luck with J-B Weld. Just make sure you dont get crazy with the amount applied. After its dried you can smooth it out with a file or dremel tool.

He not trying to reshape the edge. He is try to fill in a deep nick or gouge. JB weld is like liquid steel that you can file and grind when its dry. Ive used it to fix holes in motorcyle crankcases. It will bond to just about any metal.

If you prefer a big ass nick in your edge slowing you down, then dont do it.

The guy doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground, a crank case is a lot different than an edge. The best way is to take the edge down to get rid of it but then you also are taking away from the edge taking away from its lifespan. It's a give or take.

If you read the OP he says that the nick is over half way through the edge. That is something you cant file out, it needs to be filled in.
