Need help locating jigs for Solomon and Tyrolia bindings...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I have some nice Solomon Driver and Tyrolia ESS bindings from back in the day.  Does anyone know where I can find some jigs for these bindings?  Thanks!

If they still make them they're pretty much a dealer-only item.  And expensive too.

EBay is useful for this sort of thing.

If you can use a paper template maybe you'll find these helpful :

Thanks for your help with this everyone.  I worked in a rental shop last season and finally got the chance to mount some bindings.  I was shocked at how easy it was with the right equipment.  I also realized that the high end bindings my buddies and I purchased 20 years ago are still very useable.  Because we have roughly 5 sets of Salomons and 4 sets of Tyrolia, I think we are just going to build our own jigs.  It should be fun!

Well if you've mounted bindings already then (unless you take up Philpug on his offer) I suggest getting a drill press - cheaper than a jig and more versatile.  Cheap on craigslist.  Make your marks and plunge away.

I do have a very nice drill press.  I was thinking along those lines myself.

FTR, for those without mounting jigs, drill presses or CNCs, SVST just put out a nice hand drill mounting jig option. It was developed for Quiver Killer stainless steel threaded inserts, taps and their new custom step drill.....and I assume alpine screw step drills. The alpine bits fit perfectly and will help the DIYer using paper templates keep drill holes vertical:

Binding Freedom offers an 'F' Drill (.257) & 5/16" drill and tap guide block which also 'works' with alpine drill bits, but with more movement than the Quiver Killer/SVST Mounting Jig:

For those who used to dowel butt joints before biscuit joiners came along, an old Record/Marbles dowelling jig with changeable bushings is an excellent option. I'm glad I held onto mine:

If you are using the proper binding drill bit, and have checked, rechecked, checked, and rechecked that your marks are all correct...its pretty hard to mess the holes up.
