File guide, sidewall cutter and scraper sharpener, reimagined in a single tool.
MULTI-SIDE EDGE TOOL: Take down just enough sidewall to expose more metal edge for filing, then simply rotate tool 180º to sharpen and hone the side edge at either 2° or 3°. 0° angle bar surface provides convenient fence to sharpen plexi scrapers. To switch between 2° and 3° simply detach angle bar from wear plate, rotate 180º then re-attach, no need for multiple fixed angle guides.
SIDE WALL REMOVAL: The 7° angle bar perfectly positions a file to readily trim sidewall missing the metal edge typically set at 2° or 3°. Place the coarse side of a Tools4Boards Combi-Cut or panzer file (sold separately) on the outwardly facing 7° angle bar surface and draw the tool down the sidewall using light pressure. Multiple file teeth in contact with the sidewall prevent the file blade from digging in. Minimizing sidewall removal maintains necessary support for the metal edge and greatly extends ski or snowboard life.
SCRAPER SHARPENER: To switch from sidewall trimmer to plexi scraper sharpener, simply detach angle bar from wear plate, rotate 180º then re-attach so the 0° surface is outwardly facing. Place a sheet of 180 grit sandpaper (sold separately) on a flat surface underneath wear plate and slide plexi scraper back and forth using 0° surface as a fence.
Compatible with all interchangeable Switch system components. Domesic and foreign patents filed and pending.
