    binding maintenance

    Apologies in advance for the jong question...

    Seems I've developed a used ski habit.....some of them come with gummy binders, what's the accepted method for cleaning/re-lubing? TIA

    Be careful with silicone based sprays they can melt/degrade some plastics used in bindings.

    Most manufacturers use a PG75 grade lube which is good for metal to metal, plastic to plastic and most importantly metal to plastic.

    I've bought a few used setups and i haven't found the need to regrease,
    if it was greased properly at the factory the grease is still there

    mostly I just check for loose screws which I also do start of any season,

    I think alot of failures on skis bikes and a lot of equipment are due to loose screws

    Only lube if you see corrosion (old school roof racks or skis left outside). Or if the lube isn’t lubey

    OP said it’s gummy. Which ain’t right.
    Mostly you need track grease for the heel.
    I use Phil woods since I have it for bikes.

    Toe springs are more interesting. Most don’t easily disassemble. Took apart a few old Salomon years ago, and the toe springs were always greased even when the heels were dry or gummy.

    Thx mods. It’s an awesome signature.
