Thanks guys. That's sort of what I suspected.

...and nobody likes a thin base!

We used to do a lot of stone grinding at Trail Sports and experimented with taking off waxless patterns without much success. The base ends up very thin.
Waxless to Waxable

Does anyone have experience doing a base grind on waxless skis to make them into waxable skis?
I have a pair of waxless skis with quite a bit of damage to the fish scales so they're not terribly efficient as waxless skis, but I think they'd be great with smooth bases.
I wonder if there's enough base material if one were to remove the fish scales.
I also considered adding ptex to the bases, then grinding, but I'm sure it would be a mess. The skis are Rossignol BC 90's, so beefy xc/bc skis.
Anyone have an opinion?
