Ski & Snowboard Side Edge Filling Using Various Tools4Boards File Technologies

Rick Weissenborn of Tools4Boards demonstrates edge filing with various Tools4Boards Metal file technologies along with some good tips on basic edge tuning.

Otherwise, your files will be dulled by these hardened edge sections.
