The File Base Flattener is a powerful planing tool that uses a file to flatten concave snowboards and skis. It is a different application from the steel blade in the Base Flattener, the steel blade is for fine flattening work, the File Base Flattener's purpose is to cut through concave metal and plastic quickly. New boards and skis always have some concave sections; they must be flattened for the board or ski to function correctly. A base that is concave makes the board or ski grabby and hooky, not smooth. They make edge-to-edge transfers difficult and sticky. You cannot relax on a concave base; you always have to be prepared for its next bad surprise.
Includes 8" 2nd cut crosscut file for nice finishing. The magnetic strip holds the file securely against the angled guide. The plane keep s the file flat and true for reliable base flattening and repairs.
