Just 2 things to add into the thinking pot:

Don't tell me... Spewts?
s'OK. Buster & I cleaned house on everything that was Titties (and above) deep. Nuthin left that's more'n belly button deep.
40 inch base is the magic number
I'm thinkin it's above where you stopped. Stuck right where you walked out.
Then there's the "paper trick" for finding center quickly, easily & with minimal fiddly-FKNAround
Nice work getting this going. Looks good! Kudos!
It would appear there's a few of us that've been tinkering with this idea.
My jigs incorporate several bushing styles for performing multiple...

G25- Nothing "crystal clear" at this point. Plated, or barred, or however you want to refer to them, binding systems such as these have a fixed distance between the toe & heel. Where this is mounted...
I don't have a T-25 here to measure, but when I measure over (would be flats on a hex) the ones I have they seem to jump about .020-.025" per size jump: T8 - T10 - T15 - T20. So maybe a T25 does that...
Hammer a reground tip in.
Try spin the binding combined with the driver.
Try hammering in next size up - possibly T20-plus, an allen hex maybe or T25

Who jinx'd this shit? Somebody get a rope!
Hold that F'in driver upright and pop the shit out of it with one (maybe 2) blows with a mallet/hammer top side. I mean give it a whale that'll 'bout bust your wrist if you miss. It'll break it lose...

Thanks for the feedback all. I originally had it at 264mm & 304mm but thanks to ref to Lou, revised to 265mm (10-7/16"- or 10.43") & 305 (12-0"+ or 12.01"), which makes more sense.
Not sure it...

Yes two distances. 1 for large, and 1 for small.
I know what I have them at for the jig I'm making, just wanted to confirm what you guys got - and that it's where it lines up and works.

EC Can get a very close measurement for us between the toe rear screws center and the heel front screws - with in a mm?
I have some of those around here somewhere...

I was making some jigs for the Guardian on a CNC mill and just wanted to confirm I had the layout/numbers right. For some reason I didn't think the Guardian had been "proofed" yet. - must have got it...

Can someone verify a dimension for me on these Guardians?
I'm looking for the offset from the "toe line" or tip of boot to the front toe hole centers and/or also "toe line" to the rear toe hole...
Holee shit!!! Not only is it almost twice as wide as some patterns, it's also twice as long. HuDge!

You mean it's not the slowest, slugiest site on the internet for you all the time? Mine's almost as bad as it's been this week every time I've been here for most of the last couple years.
Wut?? Some of you act like you didn't know you've been goin down on Pip's sister all this time. :fm:

My nearest Snotel site is aproaching negative numbers.
But I'm keeping positive knowing "November is the 2nd snowiest month."

On the bright sides, 3 or 4 more seasons on the sub par, and 1)once everyones water supply is cut off, they'll all bug out & move back down where they came from. 2) pow will last for days again, 3)...

Also bonus for a snow flick with a plot. What a concept!

This is not working, is it? Maybe it's just that only I can't see it? Sometimes I can't see pics if I'm logged in, but can when I'm not - or vise-versa.
I can't get...
"new posts" or "todays posts" whatever you want to call it. They're not available in the style with the old blue/black background (tgr40-vb4 or the older betterer tgr-vb4) when not logged in. Used to...
I only get "new posts" if I'm logged in.
If not I have to go to the new white screen to get new posts & then change it back to the blue screen so I can look at it without going blind.
