Is that tune-up as bad as I think it is or am I just picky??

Hi all,

Just went to pickup my board from a local shop and I’m wondering how bad of a job they did.

They’ve had my board since Wednesday and I asked them to do a tune-up, edge sharpening and hot wax on it. The board was supposed to be ready today.

When I went to pick it up, they hadn’t done it yet so they asked if I minded waitingthen did things in a hurry. They mounted the bindings back in the wrong position and didn’t do a hot wax at all. I put cheap storage wax on the board at the end of the season and it looks like all they did was scrape it off and sharpen the edges.

The base is not flat with my edges and there’s a line in the board where they seem to have chewed into the base while sharpening the edges.

I’ve had quite a few boards go through quite a few tune-ups and I don’t remember ever seeing this kind of stuff… am I being too picky? I’m leaving for a trip Wednesday so I don’t have much time to get it donc but I’m inclined to go back tomorrow to get it done again.

If it was just the marks on the base, probably a minor issue like @Craig64 said. But the bevel, assuming it wasn't there before, indicates they obviously went to town with the edge tool. I would have thrown a fit if I were in your shoes. I'd ask for a base grind and a proper wax job if you can still trust them. :cautious:

They should have adjusted the file in the edge tool when working on the base edge so that the file only takes off the metal. Not doing so will result in bases like yours, where the file shaves off the base material. I hope it's not too bad, but in any case, this is 100% worker error.
