Steel edging needed for top edges of box??
I want to know if i need steel edging on the top edges of my box. im using 0.188 in. HDPE for the topsheet, will it get ruined by scissoring if i dont have some metal on the edge?

No, you dont need it. Parks use it because their boxes and rails get hit all day every day. A box without coping will work fine for a backyard setup.
i use HDPE and it chips on the side, but it still works fine, its just in the beginning that you chip a lot, then after a day or three of sliding the edges are broken down and it slides like a real box, no metal edges required....
Duffy -> "GONNA GO DUFFY ON YA! HAHAHAHA! YEAH BOYYYY!"
do you get caught on the chips on the edges of the HDPE?? and how thick is you HDPE??
rather than edges of metal have the wood come an eighth of an inch below the surface, then sand the edges to the wood (for an inch on each side)
this should eliminate creating chips in the first place
hope it helps
There are as many kinds of skiers as there are lines down the mountain, but we're all pretty much the same, we all want more powder days, we all want to fly, and whether it's our first run through the pipe or our tenth trip to Alaska, we can all fall. Skiers are a community united by a shared passion and a shared understanding of the risks involved.
It helps, but it's not strictly needed

if your not part of the solution, there's a lot of fun to be had in prolonging the situation
