Everyone should have a Wiha catalog.

Tognar charges $16 for a #3 posidrive.

The Wiha one is still $13.96 with shipping compared to $8.84 from Ebay.

Sure, but that's just thirteen units.

Interesting:

'Dynagrip Pro' is listed by UK suppliers.
Stanley Tools does not offer a link to vendors of part# 64-133

What size pozidrive do you recommend for working on bindings? Is a #3 big enough?

#3 is right. I cannot imagine that people are having trouble finding a #3 at their local hardware or Home Depot. Klein, Craftsman, ect there are a ton out there.

just buy the bits

For example

Dewalt also sells packs of 3 number 3 posi bits. Or you can buy the bits loose from a good hardware store.

you will also need a universal screwdriver/nutdriver handle.

FWIW, I guess Boulder just doesn't have enough need for Pozidrive screwdrivers. Not only could I not find any locally, I couldn't even find people at the various hardware stores who knew what they were. Of course, I didn't go to McGuckin's.

I'll have to look. I've never seen them. But then again I wasn't looking for a pozidrive either.

Thanks guys!

I went to Aubuchon Hardware in Maine, Home Depot, Lowes, and Ace.

I did not try Sears but when you do a search for posidrive on their website you do not receive any hits for a basic #3 screwdriver.

Are you posi-tive?

Do they have negidrive screwdrivers too? I'd like one of those. That would be for removing the screws right? And the posidrive for putting them in?

(sorry, bored at work)

I have never found Pozi bits at a local hardware store. They always try to give me #3 phillips.

It's hard to see the diagram on the handle but it looks like a posi one.

I guess we'll know when I get it.

Sweet

Thanks for the info

I am sorry, I assumed that you needed something for bindings...I have used a #3 for 25 years and I have had NO issues. Yes, a Pizi is nice, but a #3 will work fine.

The one on Ebay is a #3 Posi.

The ski tech who mounted my M11s and SL9s after I got new boots put them both at the central position so now I need to adjust them.

I don't feel like lugging both of them to the shop to have them tell me it will take 2 weeks to do the adjustment.

I need to do a search on the Neox position threads to make sure I don't f them up.

I have mounted up a few pair of Neox's...the first time is a PITA playing with those wacky numbers.
post #23 of 39
Once the Neox's are mounted, though, moving from Center to Forward and back is easy. Remove the screw, keep the alignment frame in place, and slide the entire assembly. Replace screw.

Wow. I never would have expected a freakin' SCREWDRIVER thread to go on this long..... Don't people on here always advise leaving the screwing to the "professionals?" (ie. dope smoking 17 year olds) I thought turning a screw on your own bindings would automatically break both your legs immediately and stop the earth from rotating for a moment.

BTW, minutes ago, I finished mounting a pair of Poweraxe Race GS plates on a pair of skis, and a pair of Marker 1800's on top of those........ in my basement,...... FREEHAND!!!:

(disclaimer: I do have a binding drill bit <4.1x9.5>, a tap, and a pozidriver.)

Hah. Lots of those pros do those plates freehand too.

Most annoying plate to freehand: The Fischer WC plate. AFAIK, there isn't any jig available in North America either, even if you want to pay for it.

Oh, and for anyone working on bindings without a Pozi, do yourself a favor and carefully use the appropriate sized flat blade instead of a Phillips...works much better.

I think you need to be looking for a Pozidriv (not spelling). Any a #3 is the standard binding mount screw size as far as im aware. Home depot sells a little black and decker driver set with about 15 different heads, one of them is a #3 pozi. Local hardware stores, even the speciality ones that dealt in hand tools around N-NJ didn't have pozi bits in stock...

I've freehanded alot of skis. The plates are usually easy. This was the first Hangl plate I've done..... it was actually very easy.

Bindings are usually more difficult, but I have a pretty good system. They always turn out good. The only downside is it takes a lot of time. Fun and rewarding, though.

Yah, usually the bindings are more annoying. I freehanded my Fritschi Freerides last year and that was annoying, for some reason I didn't get the paper template with mine.

The Fischer plate is annoying because it uses keyholed hidden mounting hardware that has to be correct to within less than 1mm laterally or else it will bind and suck to install and ski on.
