    For binding mounts, it doesn’t. Unless a ski has carbon i use waterproof wood glue. If carbon, 5 minute work time epoxy.
    If on a delam, locktite marine epoxy since it remains pliable as to flex with the ski. G flex is good if you have it around, if not then the marine works fine.
    I also fill the old holes with epoxy and golf tees if having to mount close to existing, if not then the plastic pound ins with some epoxy works just fine. I use a tooth pick to burp the holes if need be. Never had an issue in all my mounts over what, 20 plus years if mounting my own shit.

    The plastic tips can be trimmed too, to have a larger opening.

    Oh, and even then, I don't *pull* the epoxy into the syringe - it's possible that would work if it were warm, but mine never is. I mix on a small piece of paper or cardboard, then use the mixing toothpick to swirl a bunch onto the toothpick. I then roll off in the open end/barrel of the 10cc syringe - repeat until all the material is transferred. Even if I do 3-4cc of material, I can still load the syringe this way. Then slide the plunger in and purge the air.
    Yeah I bought needles and not pipettes... that's probably the issue.

    Good tips gents.

    So I play guitar, and when I change strings, I cut the old, wound strings into 6" lengths. Infinite supply.

    Haven't found one but there's one available for the Warden 13, and the toe is the same. The heel is different but you can use the heel plate as a guide, just line up the front holes the same distance from the line as the Warden 13 and clamp the plate in place to drill. I've done 3 sets of mounts this way.

    Picked up these 196 Blizzard bodacious today off craigslist for a fair price. Purchased some pivots from the shop and went home and mounted these pigs.

    We shall see if they live up to the hype...

    BTW K2's 193 is longer than Blizzard's 196

    Chopped fiber glass mixed with epoxy. Stuff the hole/s and barely tighten binding down. Wait 24-48 hrs to cure then crank the binding screw snug.

    Helicoil and epoxy. Probably have a shop do it since the tools cost more than they’ll charge to do it.

    Did these for a pal who has had mediocre shop experience. So cool to see his face when done and doing final binding adjustments.

    So

    Bought race skis for the kids. When I pick them up they all have plates except the 129 blizzard firebird SL’s. I ask, guy at desk says “that size doesn’t come w a plate”. I think OK, I’ll mount them. Wife insists I take the skis to the best shop in PC ( big race tune place). Begrudgingly I agree, get skis back w all 7 holes dimpled. Fuck.

    So I call Blizzard and talk w Tracey who says all the JR SL skis are shipped w a plate. Not on the ski but need to be mounted. Asks where I got them, checks the invoice and says “yep, they were shipped w the skis”.

    So now I’m fucked. If I had the shop I bought them from mount them I’d be fine and getting new skis. If I had mounted myself I would have checked length before drilling and be fine. Call in to shop manager asking about said plate but no call back.

    What think you all? Do I have any recourse because the dimbshit who handed me the skis was talking out his ass?

    Um. Wow. I’ll throw a beer down on this as well. This is amazing. I’ve been eyeballing with a ruler for the first 4 pairs I’ve mounted with good luck but my OCD hates it. I will for certain be doing this from now on.

    You still get new skis.
    Keep hounding manager. You pay for mount, so no matter where you bought, they own their work.

    I have to believe they'd rather make it right with you than risk losing this (unearned?) reputation as ...

    Shops make mistakes, even the good shops.
    But they gotta own it.

    and +1, capitalize on the 'I wasn't wrong' to the wife. Opportunities must be seized.

    Just to confuse you and add another option... I've used nylon tap in inserts with success.

    Drill the hole out to 5/16", put some slow cure epoxy in and tap in the insert. Spinner gone.

    Can't believe I haven't thought of this before. Always thought finding the centerline was a PITA.
