The TeleWiki Discussion thread

Postby Johnny » Tue Dec 26, 2017 9:51 am

I thought it would be a good idea to gather all the information at the same place. There's a lot of precious information discussed on the forum, (and elsewhere on the net) but it's sometimes hard to find back. Having all the useful stuff indexed in this section will make it much more easier for everyone. The idea here is to share knowledge...

Feel free to write new articles or update what's already here... Or make special requests...? 8-)

Hey gents,

I've been thinking about a wiki request if any of you have time and are interested - maybe even next offseason?

Not particularly XCD per se, but is anyone interested in compiling a wooden ski prep, care, and offseason blocking tutorial thread? Or is there a thread going already in the older annals of the forum that I might have missed? I know woodenskis.com has some good information, but thought it might be interesting to have some back-and-forth technique or opinion sharing on here.

I got thinking about this when I picked up a pair of Asnes Tur-Langrenn at a consignment store that look to be in good shape. Me, the father-in-law, and my Wife's Granda' plan to pull a couple of their old pairs of woodies out of the shed and get them tuned up this year. But it's been 30 years since either of them have worked with woodies, so it's should prove to to be an interesting process!

Cheers,
Smitty

Smitty, why not start of a general thread yourself in the general discussion board, and then you can compile all the info and create your very first TeleWiki Thread!!!!

There are many woody fancing lurking in the deeper physche at many TTalkers so the information is here. I for one own a few, have restored and prepped them. I think I also have an extra can of pine tar kicking around. at the time it was hard to find in canada, so if your interested, let me know.

Damn, I should have reached out on the forum about the pine tar! I did have a hard time finding any locally or in Edmonton. But I ended up ordering some from http://solventfreepaint.ca/ . It should be here any day now!
