Good deal on maintenance tools?

So I've been reading up on a lot of the information you guys have posted up in the forums about general maintenance for snowboards and want to put it to use this season. I've been shopping around for some tools (since I've got nothing) and stumbled on this starter kit. Anyone have any experience with this kit? Is it a good buy for the money?

I have it. It does the job you ask of it. Cheap right now on Backcountry/Dogfunk after using their coupon codes.

Dogfunk: 3BH-1-YANHU 20% off (expires Oct.29)
Backcountry: 3BG-1-AEMTB 20% off (expires Oct.29)

It does not include a bronze/copper wire base cleaning brush or a nylon brush.
The edging tool has 2 sides: 88 and 90 degrees.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

I have the same kit. I bought mine for 69 + tax back in WA. It works good, I used up my ptex and half the wax last season. I bought mine to maintain my board and make money doing my friends boards. Like illegal said, it doesnt have those brushes. I am going to get some this year. I found a brand new kit on Ebay for 59, no bids with like four days left. Its early season, worth the wait to save money. Up to you, sweet starter kit though.

If you are going to do home maintenance, why not use the same tools shops use? Most of the stuff you can get from your local shop is just packaged crap to make you feel good about what you're doing. Check out Tognar. They carry stuff to maintain your board from waxing to fixing a blown out edge. I can't speak highly enough of these guys.

That starter kit is worth the money for the iron, the edger and the supplies. I wouldn't bother ordering in just the nylon/wire brushes or brillo pads though. You can generally get them at any local hardware store for cheaper, there's nothing overly special about them. That said, if you're ordering other supplies (wax, base cleaner, Ptex), then you might as well save yourself a local trip.

And yeah, Tognar is a great one stop website.
