Anyone use a "Microhair Base Shaver"?
"Microhair Base Shaver", found near the bottom of this page...
I need to order some supplies and Artechski.com is cheaper than on every item I want, but they don't carry the above base shaver. Has anyone used this product that can comment on it's effectivness?

I have used it and it really doesn't do anything. It's just a waste of cash imo.

I use a scotchbrite followed by Tognar's omni-prep pad after structuring. I think you'll find that the vast majority of guys on this site don't worry too much about microscopic p-tex hairs...

I use scotchbrite on my sl and gs skis and doubt that I would feel any difference if the skis were used in varying snowconditions, which they arent.
This means that on freeride skis it's probably a waste of time and money to do anything about microhairs.
Then again, sometimes its nice to take a bath just cause it feels good so I guess it depends on your level of utilitarianism if you'll find it worth your while.

Shorty, that "microhair base shaver" pictured there is a common tool found in any paint department (i.e. home depot). You would be better of with that cabinet scraper that I was telling you about before. If you go back to your link page and go two items up it says Sandvik or Bahco scraper, that is a cabinet scraper. Scraping your bases will dull the edge of scraper, and w/the cabinet scraper you can run perpendicular to a file layed on a bench and keep it nice and sharp. That is exactly how I did the bases on those skis we talked about earlier. I would think you could find that scraper locally as well.

Sweet... thanks tuco... that's really helpful. I have to admit that I was pretty unclear on what the cabinet scraper was that you were referring to before, but I'm on it now.
