Stonegrinding Options We offer a number of different types of stonegrinding services. These include:
Note: Base Oil is a product innovation from Rex. It is a lightly fluorinated oil used in place of multiple layers of soft wax. In addition, the first coat of wax on a freshly stonegound ski or recently purchased new ski, is an important coat of wax. The bases are dry having not yet seen wax. Rex base oil provides a layer of lubrication between a hot iron and a plastic base. Overheating a dry base is less likely using Rex Base Oil.
Note: $25 shipping charge for continental U.S. $8 for each additional pair. All shipping is insured. Additional cost for shipping to Alaska and Canada.
Before dropping your skis off, please scrape and brush all glide wax and remove all kick wax from ( sidewall and base ) with wax remover. Please add $5 to $10(if kick waxed) if we need to perform this cleaning service.
Note: Please include a detailed note with return shipping instructions, grind preference from grind menu, e-mail address and phone #.Please note: Outside of the Refresh grind, a stonegrinding leaves the ski in a very fresh, like new condition. This means the bases will require the same full base prep you would perform on a new pair of skis: warm ( or Rex Base Oil ), medium, and hard wax base prepping.
