Video - How to Install Brass Ski Binding Insert

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Just a quick vid on how to fix a spinner or pull thru on the cheap.  By-product is that these are arguably the strongest inserts on the market.

 

Inserts available here - http://www.slidewright.com/brass-tap-inserts.php

Nice work.  I have fixed these issues by using Metal Grip.  With a super small rod tip on the burner.  Melt the Grip into the hole.  No need to fill completely.  Let cool overnight.  Seems to have worked several times.

That's a good trick.  Same idea as using a nylon insert.

 

Steel wool and epoxy works in a pinch as well

I will say the way you do it is not going to fail.  Very strong.  Keep the demos coming.

Those things take enough material out of the ski to worry me.
But, if you say so.........
I have helicoils in my shop and they work fine without removing as much material.

Ya for sure, heli-coils are very good,  but, I made this vid for the diy'er.  And I chose to feature brass inserts over quiver killer and heli-coils, because they are alot cheaper.  I was actually gonna make this vid with hc and qk installs, but got drunk instead.  haha
