The one thing that has kept me from buying a pair is the anticipation of the Edison. Those looks Sofa King sick.

ok, so after i received this board, i realized it obviously needed a bit of TLC...

the first few pis are how i received it, the rest are the repair....




and now to the repairs...

tried originally to edge screw it down and base replace... didnt work... Confused


epoxied tail chips

start of edge/base transplant

edge donor




base piece/edge to be replaced

old edge out, new edge for comparison

needs to be trimmed back a bit for the new edge


end of edge filed to fit

sits just about right

holes drilled for edge screws


temp to see if all fits well with edge screws

measured/cut to fit piece of replacement base material

it fits nice and snug

slap some epoxy in and fit base piece


clamp and wait

clamps removed, time to clean up


plane with the base again


time to fix a few bad ptex jobs.....
nice and smooth now!

all is nice and smooth and plane



time for a wax job, and DONE!!!!!!!!!


no more ugly ptex repair spots....





special thanks to vicente for the care package and the tips along the way!!!! CHEERS!

Clap DTJoe, that was some serious board work!! 
 
I think one of the hardest parts of doing some real repairs is just not knowing or being scared of where to start.  Let this series of pics be a lesson to others: Go out and learn you some repair skills!
 
Once again Clap
