    Official Jigarex thread

    More clearly in response to the previous question, SVST owns/ fabricates Binding Freedom and Jigarex. SlideWright.com supplies BF inserts, screws and mounting tools and supplies.

    Have a Jigarex and Warden plates in Boston area on weekdays and Catskill region on weekends. If anyone is interested in using it or testing it out before their own purchase send me a PM. We can work something out

    Cheapskate idea

    I thought I'd post this idea (and risk ridicule) in case someone else wants to do something similar: I took an old Geze jig out of the trash - if you live in a ski town these things are relatively easy to come by - and modified it to accept the width of modern skis. Since I'm a die-hard Solly guy, I don't mind making this a dedicated Solly jig. The Jigarex templates were $35. This was easy to do I just used some bolts with nuts as spacers and made some new metal "claws" to grip the skis. I fortunately had some scrap aluminum with a rubber strip glued to it which worked out beautifully to grip the skis. I had to modify the jigarex templates a bit, cutting them shorter on my bandsaw. I ground off the original bushings on the Geze jig and carefully centered the templates on the jig. I held the templates onto the jig with clamps and then drilled some holes through both the jig and templates. I put roll-pins (tension pins) in the holes. It's totally bomber. I've mounted only 2 pairs of skis so far but they are both centered on the skis within a .010" tolerance.

    I managed to pick some up in Jan. when they had them in stock. Shoot them an email/phone call, they may be able to tell you when they'll get them in stock.

    If you were near MA I'd let you snag mine but you seem to be across the country.

    Yep Idaho.

    Might hit you up for borrow if I can't find one as I have 2 pairs kingpins to mount.

    Will do. Just let me know. I've got mine just sitting at home in a box.

    Jigarex is awesome. Anyone who has been fucking around with paper templates needs one. Bite the bullet. You can see where the dollars went.

    I have a jigarex but I am mounting my latest rig with paper templates (Atomic Backland)...total bummer..unfortunately, Jigarex cant keep up with how fast the industry is changing binding hole patterns or supply enough existing plates. Thinking about becoming proficient at making my own plates....

    Definitely need to be right on it when they make the plates. I call and get the rough estimate of when they will be done, then pester them until they ship.

    Me too. I wonder if this will even stay around very long. Not sure they’re making new plates other than what existed when svst bought it.

    I talked to SVST recently about plate availability and it sounds like they are producing the plates during the off season, and once a plate is sold out for the season, there won't be more available until summer/next season. Kind of weak IMO.

    I presume there is not a huge profit on the plates. And, along with many other winter fabrications, they'd have to stop their summer fabrication schedule to reset and make limited runs to meet a small demand.

    Makes sense though, as Alpinord said. The Jigarex is almost certainly a low-margin product that has a limited demand.

    I'm sure there are enough mags here who would let you borrow a plate if need be. I've had success on both ends so far.
