    Killing it with the 3-5 year old crowd!


    When I mounted my P14's, I also had to turn the forward pressure in (shorten the stems) to where it is a few mm from being maxed out. Luckily it didn't actually bottom out before I got the forward pressure set to where it should be (ie. no side to side/rotating dildo slop).

    This could be because the white forward pressure marker/tab on Pivots isn't really accurate for setting forward pressure. The jig may line up the tab with the dash-marks, but in my experience, this is too little forward pressure and there is a lot of dildo slop. From my tech knowledge and experience, using the tab/dashes is a starting point, then you have to increase pressure to eliminate dildo slop.

    If the Jigarex was designed to line up the tab-dash forward pressure correctly, then this could be the difference that is causing the ffwd pressure to bottom out in some cases.

    Don't use the white tab to determine forward pressure. They are notoriously unreliable.

    Put boot in binding. Flip dildo halfway up (until horizontal). When forward pressure is set correctly the dildo should snap the rest of the way up from there on it's own. It may require just a little bit of downward pressure on the boot, but not much.

    I love this jig. Two flawless mounts thus far. I am in Providence RI and have a Jigarex with Dynafit Beast and Salomon/Atomic STH 916 plates if anyone local wants to try the system out before they invest.

    I've only had one hole "off" a bit due to not holding the drill vertical, so now I'm using the 'Rex with a drill press. A little slower, but not bad at all.

    Used the Jiggyrex to determine hole conflict with inserts for a B16 onto my 192 BRO, I can go 2cm forward or 13mm back.

    Looks like the Sollyfit plates are going back on. Saved me loads of hassle.

    Score another one for Jiggyrex!

    Mounted a bunch of skis, mostly dynafit. Most came out great. Lately I've been noticing that the jig doesn't center perfectly, ~2mm. I've also had a couple mounts where the toe is a bit cockeyed and makes it so that the heel pins don't line up exactly. I don't currently have the plates he has for dynafit adjustment plates, so I've been mounting the toes with a jig, then freehanding the adjustment plates. When I've done it this way there were a couple times when I had to offset the plate to one side because the toes were cockeyed. I've tried a bunch of test mounts and I haven't been able to figure out what's causing it. Have an email in to Dave, so I'm hoping I get it figured out. For alpine bindings where it doesn't matter too much if you're off by a couple mm I love it.

    When I mounted my B16s I noticed one end of the Jiggyrex ski centering attachment seemed like it was hanging up. Some gentle persuasion got it to adjust correctly, seemed like something was hanging up internally.

    I was able to "wiggle" it very slightly and it works fine. Similar to issue you had but not as bad and I recalled your post and did not force it.

    Yeah, mine gets a little "sticky" every now & then, but I'm just carful to not force anything. Lift it off, massage it a bit, replace, and proceed. I'm using spring clamps on both end now to keep it as flush as possible though. No issues in about a dozen mounts.

    I'm in St Paul, MN, and have Sali, Tyrolia/Head/Fischer, and NTN (pink) plates if anyone wants to watch/try/whatever.

    Dun 10 with mine, all good mounts.

    I am in mid Atlantic. Got STH, STH2, LOOK/ROSSI, DFIT TLT/RAD/B16.

    Can help a mag out in need. Barter roolz apply.

    I have found this quite a bit. I used some soda can shims to get it straight again, but it isn't very consistent. I don't recommend it for high precision mounts(particularly rando race bindings)

    FWIW I have 14+ mounts with the jig with most being dynafit type.

    Just a shout out to Dave T for super awesome customer service. Contacted him about my Jiggy being slightly balky and he sent me a replacement no problem and sending the original back. WOOT!

    Another bump for great customer service from Dave. Lightening quick response to my PM about getting some spare parts for my jig. In the mail < 24hrs later. Thanks mang.

    Did a 22D VIce last week. Went off without a hitch.

    Score another one!

    This is fairly obvious, so it may not be the issue, but if you remove the knobs on the self-centering clamps, when you put them back, make sure the clamps are precisely aligned to find the center. If you're swigging from the can and re-tightening the knob at the same time, It is very easy for the clamps to be a notch off.

    I haven't removed the knobs. The amount off is not that great. on the order of single digit millimeters. But it is enough to cause alignment issues with tech heels

    Haven't got mine in front of me, but there's a small bolt/rivet head on the outside of the frame that may interfere with the plate for some BSL's. This causes the plate to be offset 1-2 mm's at rear when the plate slides over the bolt head.
    It only caused a problem on one mount but took forever to find the problem.

    Hey mags, I'm working on mounting plates for new bindings, and I'm looking for your wish lists. If there are any bindings that you'd like to see mounting plates for, send me a PM and I'll try to work it in.

    Yup. I have Solly and Look plates, and I think Marker Duke plates as well. Send me a PM.

    A couple updates. First, we'll have plates for some new bindings in a couple weeks, such as the Marker Kingpin and some new Dynafit offerings. Next, if anyone needs any replacement parts, let me know and I can send them out. Some of the bits and pieces of improved since the first generation, but it is easy to upgrade.
