DIAMOND FILES

Moonflex diamond files must be used wet, spraying a mixture composed of 50% water and 50% alchool directly on the tool while used. If used on ski slopes, a little bit of snow would be enough to keep the file wet.

To get the best finishing of the edges, we suggest the following recommendations: the corner of the edges should be first profiled using a Moonflex grit 100 (black), then polished using the range of grids 2004006001500 to get a mirror-like surface.

Moonflex should never be used freehand; always use a suitable holding device to keep the Moonflex diamond file steady and perfectly aligned with the edges.

For further lapping, resin bond Moonflex grit 1500/3000 is suitable. After the ski tuning, we recommend to clean Moonflex edge tuner with a brass brush and the same mixture of water and alchool used while sharpening the edges. If used properly, a Moonflex file will allow you to tune some hundreds edges.
