Thanks for the tip. Got the bearings locally at E.B. Atmus, Springfield Ma. They specialize in bearings of all kinds. Keep in mind if you need a bearing for anything.

Thanks. Working on removing the bearings. I'll get the bearing either from SVST or from Dave. Also I googled the bearing and can probably get them from another source if I need too.

I talked to Dave at http://www.fontaineskituning.com/ and he was very helpful. Talked me through on how to dis-assemble the free wheel mechanism. Wasn't very difficult.

I have a Fontaine 680 ski tuner. It appears the free wheel is now frozen. Before I start messing with it, does anyone know how the wheel comes off? It looks like I may need a wheel pulley. Anyone expe ...

^^^ I agree. you can forgo a separate sidewall glue up altogether as long as the core glue up is super clean with out gaps. All depends on what you want the finished product to look like. It may be a ...

I think most builders use a butt joint. I've also seen some builders integrate the core and tip spacer with a V. I use the butt joint and never had a failure. Since the butt joint is sandwiched betwee ...

There's a company in Vermont called Powderjet that makes snowboards with wood bases. We exchanged some info awhile back. I think he was using thin coat of epoxy on the wood base. http://powderjets.co ...
