    I just put the JigaRex on the ski, use this centerpunch to punch holes, remove the JigaRex, and drill the rest by hand for standard mounts or inserts. When I'm anal, over-tired, or over-stoned, I'll use a small bit to increase the center-punched hole before using the 3.5/4.1 bit.

    Same process here, though I use calipers to check dimple measurements before drilling (they have always been good, within .5mm of perfect), and have a cheap drill press so no worries about being crooked.

    Iíve never done inserts though so there is a little more wiggle room.

    Ugh still annoyed at that mount.

    I obviously shouldn’t care that the heel piece is slightly of center, about 3mm. Right?

    If i'm going down a mount size (10mm or less) and remounting an Attack pattern with Pivots, am I going to have issues? I'd like to start swapping my attacks out, but I'm also going to down a few mm in boot size.

    The rear toe locations will be very close so you'll have to move the Pivot mount back a tad:

    One fix would be to find someone with a mill, and have them mill new 1/4" holes as close to the centerline of ski as possible (overlapping the old holes), and install inserts. If you don't fully erase the original 4mm holes, you could be centered. Fill the old holes with G/flex before milling, so you don't have a small hole alongside the inserts.

    Thanks! I guess now is the best time to swap out my attacks.

    My new favorite binding mounting adhesive is gorilla construction adhesive. Waterproof, stays flexible, easy to use, and the bindings I recently removed showed no sign of water intrusion. The screws backed right out, super easy to apply, no mixing, not brittle like titebond iii, so far so good.

    Looking for a paper template for Salomon Warden binding. When I checked on SlideWright / Binding Freedom they show one template for all Salomon bindings except Guardian. Is that correct? I have not purchased the bindings yet so I can't print it and check

    Warden 11 or 13? They have diff patterns.

    See the google drive here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...yYY6Gg2a3Dd245

    Warden 11 is its own template on there, and Warden 13 shares 6/8 holes with STH2 and they share a template as well.

    PSA: Mount your own fucking skis.

    Well, I fucked up in a way... think this is my 15th pair of skis I mount.
    I printed both the template for fks and look pivot/axial 2 at work, I have only mounted pivots once before so wasnt sure which one to use.

    The first ski was no problem mounting. But some how I took the template for axial/pivot for the heel on the second ski... so the only option was to use the two front holes and mount the heel pice about 5mm more forward since i already had drilled the holes...

    The ocd person in me says that i need to move the heel pice on both skis forward...
    I dont think i will notice any difference.. But I will still think about it.
    Should I leave it as it is?
    So fucking stupid

    If Iíve followed...toes are in the same intended spot on both skis. One heel is a bit forward, but you still have room to adjust back its position on track for your BSL and proper tension. Good to go IMO. Youíll stop thinking about it after a while.

    Correct, the toes are in the right spot.
    One heel will be ~5mm more forwards.

    Donít know how this affects the ski, when I over think about it I visualise that the ski will bend different when carving, since its 5mm of to the contact point.

    But I realise that its just in my brain..
    Feel so stupid about this, it isnít my first mount...

    If toes are in the same place you wont notice a thing. As long as they can adjust to fit your boots youíre in good shape.

    Agree with the above. Toes in the same spot and youíre good to go.

    Mounted these up for the older daughter, while waiting for the smoke to clear.

    Have not had og Cochises in the quiver for the past four years. They've been missed! Found a decent pair and ditched the Barons that were on them. This is the third mount and mine til death do us part.
