Runner sharpening

The Tune-up Clinic is an annual NEIYA before-the-ice-comes event.

If you have any interest in the sport of ice boating, this is a great place to learn about it. Informal discussions on alignment, safety, runner sharpening, racing, cruising, whatever, will be going on. We will have coffee, doughnuts, hot dogs, chips etc. Bring something if you would like but not necessary we always have plenty.

This is your best opportunity to talk to other ice boaters where its warm and without helmets, face masks and glove on to get in the way.

Open to members and non members, bring a friend that might be interested in ice boating.

If you have a jig for alignment or sharpening please bring it, good to see different methods.

There will also be an Indoor swap meet, bring gear for sale.  Steve Duhamel ofNorth Wind Ice boat will be there with lot’s of new and used stuff.

    Howdy Folks, I picked up a set of really nice SS T irons for a tenth of the regular cost… These irons are beautifully made, but .001-.002 under race min. spec I noted with keen interest the photo is a full blown machine shop… From square edge to beveled edge, done with abrasives or end mill ? I’d also like to prototype a effective brake design for the new Mead. Anyone seen the cat’s butt of an ice boat brake to adopt? John E. NEIYA & CIBC
