will boiling water then sticking them in and then bending the tips work on foam core skis or just wood?

it will work on foam, but it wont on wood. U can stick it under a door or something.
i hate posers! Pot leads too... uh i forgot. Thats hilarious wherever i heard it.. Its on here somewhere.Thanx to harvey for such a kick ass site
Boiling water does work. the only problem your going to encounter is it doesn't heat the edges enough to soften them, so you have to be careful.
next point, dont bother doing this if you plan on really skiing them. reg skis are so different than a twin. just buy some off ebay if your that cheap. the only reason for making something like this is for hardcore urban rails, that will destroy the ski anyway. also, put rivits in the tail, and mount the bindings motre near center.
i took an Iron, put it on full and pressed it against both sides of the ski until melting occured...put it in a vice and bent...this was with wood-core rossi powers....after there complete bend i stuck them in the snow to cool.....they were fine until i was in Cape Breton, it was -35, and the tails were so brittle, they broke like they were made of paper...then i was grinding a backyard rail and the skis split in half
moral of the story: if you hate your skis, buy an Iron
