Re: Time for some ski making

Thanks for that link, Wooderson, I was not familiar with that ski maker. Those are some nice looking skis! One set looked as if they were made from curled birch! Maybe a veneer? I couldn’t really tell from the pics and Google translate only goes so far. Very nice! You might see me in that North Hou...

Re: Time for some ski making

The tracking groove is on them. You can make one with a router bit. Doing it on stock blank of the ski before cutting the sidecut would help, or a fence. It's not large, I'll take a picture later for you when I get a few minutes. Not all production skis had lignostone edges. Many of them just had wo...

UPDATE #31 of Fine Woodworking Magazine in the November/December 1981 issue Also, there's a school in MN that has classes on makin...

Re: Voile Releasable binding

I wish they hadn't stopped making them, I would use them for sure BUT From what I understand, read, and talked about with people in the know-- it'll help your knees but it's not going to be failsafe here- the point really- again as I understand it, was to release in an avalanche, some knee release w...

Re: 2014 Fischer E-99 Crown

We're having the weather and the snow where I break out my E-99 Crowns and just pound down the miles. Warm, 50degF with loose granular snow rotting from every angle after a brief ran. The corn fields hold snow well in the NW corners where the trees act as a snow fence. The rocker keeps the tips up o...

Re: Hot waxing scales... pro tips!

As far as hotwaxing the scales is concerned, I am usually successful by applying wax by crayoning it onto the scales as generously as I have patience for, but only go with the scales when applying, not against so you don't accumulate wax in the scales. Then quickly run the iron with (not against) t...
