    Trimming Reverse Bucket

    I have seen many threads and pics where people have trimmed their reverse buckets. My question is how and what did you use to accomplish this? This is one of the things that I would like to do to my ski before hitting the water next month!! Any tips on how everyone did theirs and what tools they used would be great. Ive thought about using a dremel but not sure if that would be effective or not. Thanks in advance

    I used an air saw with a hacksaw blade and a small air sander to clean it up.
