Step 4: Fitting the Skis to the Vice - Vertical
In the images below, you can see that I mounted skis in the ski vise so the entire length of the ski is supported. It is very important then the ski holds this postion as you hone and file the edges of the ski. You are attempting to remove any burrs nicks and gouges from the edges of the skis while maintaining the ski edge angle of 87 to 89 degrees, usually one angle depending on your skiing style.
Future modification, The bungie cord does an ok job of holding the ski, But I want to try a different method to attempt to hold the ski a bit more firmly with less movement.
