We hate sidewall as much as you do...we love tuning skis...so we built a priceless tool to make it easy to get rid of that pain in the "you know what" sidewall and layers just above the edge.
Snowglide PUSH-OFF sidewall tool, new for 2023,designed to effortlessly remove the pesky aluminum/fiberglass layers just above the edge. Removing this layer is necessary whether tuning with a machine or by hand tuning to ensure you have clean edge to tune, to ensure precise accurate angles.
The Push-Off has 2 adjustments to accurately set a skiving (cutting) depth laterally and vertically. The 2 bearings ride on edge insuring you maintain a consistent height throughout the removal stroke. When set correctly it requires very light pressure to remove that aluminum layer and give you a clear edge to tune. Unlike traditional sidewall pullers it is use in a "push" motion rather than typical "pull" type of of sidewall tools/puller which can chatter and provide uneven results.
- All aluminum machined construction
- Round carbide blade
- Lateral depth setting screw adjusts front bearing - to set blade to just above the metal edge
- Vertical depth setting screw set blade position - to set the subtle depth vertically into the layer
- 2 bearings (one on each side of the central blade) maintain contact with edge for consistent depth of cut
Square blades available as an accessory
