Looks like the one on the left might be Jr sizes.  That would be nice to use when grinding skis.

I figured someone must have done that.  I'm surprised I have not noticed any before.  Then again I don't run a grinding machine either!

Why is removing the brakes nuts? I found it very simple and made the rest of the binding a hell of a lot easier to work with.

A simple broccoli rubber band holds them out of the way. What's to work with?

Broccoli rubber bands requires having broccoli, I could have run out to the store, but I DO have a pozidrive screwdriver and the risk of using that seemed nil.

Not just for grinding machines.     http://www.tognar.com/boot-dummy/

 

FWIW, sib's rubber band method works /better/ for Look/Rossi - the heelpiece tends to want to dig into your bench if you don't specifically provide room for it.

I have vices and a tuning bench. No heel piece issues. My husband is the cook and he likes broccoli so much I've had to tell him to STOP saving the rubber bands, I've got enough to last until I'm ninety. The paper boy and the mailman like rubber bands as well, but I need three or four of those things. They do work, however. I don't have Look or Rossi, have Markers and Salomon.

With other bindings that people regularly ski it is anything *but* simple.     You can thank Marker for the simplicity of the one you have to work with.      Then go look at an Atomic Race or Neox brake unit.    Feel free to thank Marker again after that.

Ahhh yeah, I didn't consider other models would be much more difficult. On the marker griffons it's just two large exposed screws that are very easy to take out and put back on. The forward pressure adjustment was a breeze as well.

You're obviously more careful with the screws than I am. Heck, I'd probably lose the brakes.

I really don't think discussing what vices you practice on your tuning bench is appropriate for a family oriented forum Take it to TGR. Or did you mean vises?
