    I remember throwing a pair of those in the dumpster after one season, my feet hated them and my feet and ski boots usually get along with each other

    Haha!!! If I’m skiing those in more than a foot of pow, please feel free to slap some sense into me.

    On a serious note though, I couldn’t nosebutter those blades, no way no how. They are the stiffest boards in my quiver of 10 pairs, no doubt.

    I've got a pair of Kastle FX85 181cm and mounting some Tyrolia Attack2 13 GW.

    The only thing it says on the ski is 4.1 drill bit, nothing about the depth. Can anyone that's mounted Kastles before comment on the drill depth? Assuming it's standard 9mm but want to make sure.

    ON3P spring sale skis. Brought these on a work trip and mounted them in the hotel room tonight. Can't wait to hit the volcano with em.


    2019 ON3P Kartel 108, 191cm, with Look Pivot 14 WTR

    Did a couple of test mounts and ended up using the Binding Freedom template for greater accuracy of BSL and BCL.

    Mounted two pairs for my kids after picking up some sale skis from Moment and ON3P. For my 5 year old daughter Moment Carson 121 with some Look NX jr bindings. For my 7 year old son, 141 ON3P Charlie Murphy with the same Look bindings. Kids helped and made for a good afternoon.

    Yes.
    I stole as many good ideas from everyone on the forum. It is hinged in the middle and folds up to store under the work bench. There are four different slots to put the vertical rests so I can work on everything from my daughters old 90cm to 192 Protests. Waxing clean up is quick and easy too.

    Appreciate the feedback.

    Searched high and low to no avail....is there a publicly available non-CAAD-expert program to figure out whether a binding will fit on an already mounted pair of skis??

    I know I could pull the bindings off and just look, but the skis are in another state. I also know I could print templates, but seems like there should an automated way to do it that's more efficient than printing binding templates and poking holes....

    Looking at putting Pivots (for 327 BSL) on a ski previously mounted with Wardens (for 307 BSL) and 916s (for 310 BSL). Thanks collective

    That's all with a single BSL, though.

    For meter-man's stated intent... printing templates, adjusting them for the different BSLs, and overlaying them is the best option he's got if he doesn't want to mess with CAD programs.

    First post here in years.

    Since downsizing, retiring, and moving to Sapporo permanently, I don't have a shop or a bench anymore. I brought some of my mounting gear and when I picked up a pair of skis at the end of the season, I set to mounting tele bindings on them with inserts. All I have for a work area is a $20 knockoff workmate that is less than 70 cm tall, a storage locker, and the back of my tiny car. I got them mounted but not without a scare when I tilted the tap on the two middle screws on a 22 Designs Lynx binding and couldn't get them to go. I pulled the inserts right away, filled the holes with JB Weld, and remounted the next day. Everything good now.

    I don't think I want to go through this again without a drill press and a better bench but I do have a couple of other projects to create some skis already mounted TTS that I can throw a tech heel on and use as spare loaners if someone comes to visit and their gear doesn't get here or they break something. So I might keep going after all, who knows?

    Atomic Backland 107, 189 cm with Lynx mounted with inserts, boot center on the boot center line.

    the new 22D heels still (always) look crooked even though they are dead center on the center line.

    I boiled my thermometer, and sure enough, this spot, which purported to be two thousand feet higher than the locality of the hotel, turned out to be nine thousand feet LOWER. Thus the fact was clearly demonstrated that, ABOVE A CERTAIN POINT, THE HIGHER A POINT SEEMS TO BE, THE LOWER IT ACTUALLY IS. Our ascent itself was a great achievement, but this contribution to science was an inconceivably greater matter.

    From Boulder. We both lost our jobs in February and being over 60 it didn't take long to decide that we had a better option than trying to find another job in the US. It took us until the end of August to get moved over here. Hudge project actually but we're settled and very happy now. My old friends from 30 years ago are either very old or dead or still working. So I don't have enough local partners for bc but my friends from CO come to visit sometimes and we ride JaPOW. This winter was one of, if not the lowest snow year ever for Hokkaido. It was still pretty great until the pow machine shut down in February. Started up again in April and the season ended on a good note. Next year will surely be better.

    Head Kore 93->Attck 13 pre GW. I'd like to make these my travel skis and install Binding freedom Inserts. Does the Head Kore have enough core material to install the inserts?
