That's the easy part. Buff it with some 220 paper over a flat surface, then use a coarse fiber pad by hand.Jacques. I am with you on using a steel scraper. How do you sharpen it not too much?
No worries; you didn't. I appreciated the humour in your post. I just saw this sharpener and hadn't seen that option yet., so I thought I would share. Seems like it could work.Didn’t mean to come across as a high roller, that’s not a hobby machine in my garage, that’s how I make my living.
You can try to hold it flat, but as you push the scraper and the sharpener together to get the sharpener to cut, your pressure is literally on a knife edge (the sharpener blade) and it's really really hard to keep things perfectly aligned. Especially since both are handheld.
Did you see my post that I had found something even better than the Scott shop towels? Trust me on this one.After reading the recommendations here at Pugski, I started using the Scott Pro Shop towels mid season, and scraping is rarely required. I often start with a few laps with a Toko copper brush, then go to nylon.
Do they work better? I can get the Scott towels really cheap at auto supply stores, Costco, etc.
They are more expensive than the Scott shop towels, but one sheet handles a pair of skis per wax job. They do work better, but you would have to test yourself to determine if there is sufficient value.Do they work better? I can get the Scott towels really cheap at auto supply stores, Costco, etc.
With cross country skis at least, I can use disposable towels to wipe off some of the warm wax, but still need to scrape. They will not work for wiping off wax for cold conditions.
