Filling old binding holes

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just a quick question if anyone can help. I need to fill some old binding holes in a pair of skis. What do i use?, i thought some sort of epoxy resin would do?

check with your local shop. most mfg have recommendations and maybe even material to fill binding holes.
Most people I know of use epoxy but everyone has a specific one they like.
Also you can check www.tognar.com
they have binding hole plugs avail.

Depends upon the core construction. Some of the plastics need a compatible bonding agent. Wood core, use some Titebond II and a wooden golf tee, cut off with a chisel after the glue cures.

Ask your local shop for some plugs. See if you can get them the right color for your skis or close to it. Stuff the pointy end in and hit it with a hammer, best to use an amber headed hammer. Then, with a one sided razor blade shave off the protruding portion of the plug with a back and forth, sawing motion. Keep your finners out of the way! No water or moisture will get in. They are in for good. Very tight.... ooooh soooo tight! Opps! sorry! Slap that dog with a rolled up newspaper!
