If any of these businesses can figure out a cheaper/slower/whatever way to serve mags north of the border Iím sure lots of us would support them more than we currently do.
    Hi Kids. Hope you are safe and had a great summer and fall. The aspens are firing off, early snow and the biking and camping have been sweet.

    Regarding Canadian (or any international) shipping, we have zero control over the USPS costs. Check out our shipping policies and procedures. If you let us know in your order notes or via your account and cart or wish list, we can tell you what 1st class shipping would cost vs international priority based on weight and destination. Priority seems to take around a week & 1/2 to 2 weeks and 1st class adds at least one week to that time frame. Sometimes more. Since covid restrictions have come in to play, time frames are more variable.

    Glad you like the Centering Tool, Mike and the centering stickers are getting used.
    Best regards, Terry

    Thanks & no worries, XXXer. I was just responding to the comments regarding the shipping set up we have in place. As an excellent Canadian resource for tuning & waxing tools & supplies, check out Tools4Boards in Calgary. I'm not sure Rick is set up with mounting tools & supplies, however, but I'll check.

    Bought some Woodsmans with a holes for Salomon Warden at my BSL. I've mounted a number of skis but haven't done inserts before and would rather not unless it's really the right solution. So, best approach is to reuse holes, move bindings back/forward 1-2 cm, or find another binding that will work around holes?

    If your using the same binding, use the same holes and epoxy the screws in, drink a bevy and call it a day.

    Yup, just be extra careful about making sure you donít cross-thread the holes and get a spinner. If you do get a spinner this thread is full of good tips for dealing with it

    I used my carpenters square to X out some centerline dots on painters tape. Seemed to be pretty quick method as well as accurate (within .1mm with the calipers which is within my tolerances pencil in the centerline and the mount line and Iím ready for my ďjigĒ.

    I used a few scrap pieces of lexan to make a more durable template, basically scribed in a centerline then matched it up with the paper template and drilled the holes. Labeled everything including my 315 bsl position to make it a bit easier to mount up.

    Lay it out, clamp it down, drill it up, done. No beverage due to sober October.

    Many DIY things can go wrong, but more go right. Make good choices, and own the results.

    How tight do you guys go with the screws? Just feel it out? Debating a torque wrench or just drinking more beer and going a quarter turn past tight.

    That's a great idea. I would go about 75 Nm.

    I just use a pneumatic impact driver. I've only plowed the screws through a binding and screwed the ski to my workbench once, so the overall time savings seems worth it.

    Why bother with the extra weight and complexity of screws? Just epoxy the binding to the topsheet.

    2 sided carpet tape ^^

    Fixing typers & printers I learned "the feel" early on cuz anything I stripped/broke I had to fix , I don't know how to describe the right amount of tork other than if it broke ... that was too much

    IMO when it comes to layout or drilling holes you can work-around any part of ski mounting with a T-square & a 5/32nd bit
    but what you can't work around is the need for a real PZ3 bit



    If i was getting paid to mount as many skis as I could in an 8hr shift I would have all the right tools & use an appropriately set screw gun to save my hands for one pair of skis a year I would just use regular hand tools

    with the impact driver you don't really even need to drill holes, just ram the screws in there and go skiing

    Okay, some real advice now When you drop the screw into the hole, slowly turn it backwards until you feel it "drop" into the old threads. That works more often than not, sometimes it's a little hard to tell. Then snug by hand firmly but not as hard as you can. You don't really need to put much leverage into it, and you will feel it firm up.





    unless you get a spinner....

    Iíve used a drill in the past to remove and then set some binding screws (swapping bindings to new skis), with the clutch backed way out. I have always hand tightened though. And tapped threads.

    yeah this ^^ if you turn the screw backward using just the bit its easier to feel the start of the thread

    Apparently you tee'd up all the comedians. Tapping helps feel you feel the bottom better but either way you'll figure it out after like the third one of your first pair so it'll have 13 good ones. And most (all?) screws and bindings have those little ridges on the parts where they contact. When you're tightening, they feel like zipper at first, then start individual index clicks. I do maybe 3-5 of the clicks, but it's another feel thing that you'll figure out. Whatever those ridges are called, I like them.

    The tutorial I read when I started said to make sure downward pressure on your driver is greater than rotational pressure and I thought that was good advice.
