    Thank you for your massage.
    I have a couple of old K2 skis left.
    I'm planning to make some frame too.

    Thank you for your massage.
    The used vintage skis are transformed into a treasure for me.
    It's too precious to waste.
    I'm making another one. I will post again later.

    Did you use a chop saw with a carbide blade? I do not think those K2 models have any metal in their construction. It would be more difficult if the ski has a metal construction.

    They've got metal edges which are worse. A thin metal layer completely sandwiched wouldn't be bad. Even a carbide wood blade will work but dull quickly. Exposed metal like an edge not so good and can be dangerous. Negative rake and tooth design for metal will work.

    Yes they do but only thin strips make up the edge. The edge is usually a 50 hardness on the Rockwell scale except maybe Volkl skis that would use a 60 hardness edge. What I would worry about is skis with a full metal top sheet or metal sandwich construction and you may need a cutoff wheel if you tried to use a pair of Volant skis.;)

    for James , Uncle-A
    Thank you for your messages.
    I've used chop saws whose materiasl are metal which blade are hardened and carbonated.
    As you know those K2 models doesn't have any metal in their construction however I'm making a frame made from another K2 model of 810-FO. I will post later.
    It's too hard to make up if a top sheet is a full metal like Volant.

    The photo of the frame shows you do good work. It is a great idea, thanks for sharing.
