how to bend tips up
i got a pair of old skis and i wont to no how to bend the back tips up and what is the best way to do it.
couple things yuo can do: 1 is to use a heat gun and keep moving it around the tail until it gets soft and then stick the ski in a clamp/vice(sp?) and either weigh it down or use the ski weight and let it harden. 2 is to make a pot of boiling H20 and jold the tip in it for a bit until it gets soft and do the same thing as above. The major problem is that the ski will probably de-lam so you'll have to drill holes around the edge of the tail and put some rivots in it to keep it together. good luck
Iím off on a rocketship prepared for something new
Iím off on a rok-it-ship ecstatic with the view
I am scared of the things upcoming
And I want for the things I donít have
Cannot stand to be one of many
Iím not what they are
i've done it by first heating up the tail with an iron, and then you just put it in a vice and bending it, and letting it cool. it is really simple to do.
or you could buy a pair????????
i predict in year 2010 there will be no snowboarders and all freeskiers , why because skiing kicks ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
