Distraught; my ski shop doesn't have a jig to mount HEAD RDX plates. How to proceed?

Title says it all.

There are only a few shops that have them. Reno mountain sports is one if you are in the west. On the other hand I would not get too worked up about it. Provided the plate is positioned correctly tip to tail it is not critical whether it is exactly aligned side to side. When you mount the bindings to it the jig will make sure the binding is centered.

It is not really a new phenomenon. I have mounted dozens of pairs of fischers and you would be surprised how often the pre mounted plate (same as the head plate) is not perfectly centered

I'll probably have to ship these somewhere to get them mounted (at least the plates mounted).  The insert in the raceplate box is vague as heck.  I'm hoping the place I ordered from can do this.

Where are you?  I have this jig.

Not hard to mount yourself with paper jig and the right tools.

Since you have a jig, I would greatly appreciate it if you could measure the distance from the front fixed screws to the next two and then the single one at the end.  I need to make a paper jig.  Thanks
