Default How much should I charge

For Ptexing 2 boards, waxing them, then filing the edges.

I was thinking about $25 for each board.
I told the guy I was no professional, but knew my stuff when it came to this.

How much do shops usually charge?

I think Sport Mart here charges $35 for a full tune. But apparently their full tune doesn't include ptexing.

Aight, Sounds good.

I mean itll probably end up being 1 to 1.5 hours each board. Double waxing just so it absorbs more aswell.

how much p tex work? filing his edges to what? 25.00 a stick is righteous if you know what you are doing....if not then you should pay him.

skip the p tex and buy some toko powder for repair normally relagated to stone knives and bear skin technology of P-tex.

If you know your shit a ptex repair is great and it will hold...but it is an art mastered by few. Flame temp, carbon build up, and base/damage pre prep are key here. chk the toko stuff easy peasy and it works great.
