Critique my mount...

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
just got my new sticks... ready to mount them but before i made the final tightening i wanted to get some feedback. they are approximately 2cm fore of the 'modern' line. i have included some pics to show where teh mount is. also, in the close up you can see the 'modern' and 'standard' lines. please tell me if you think they will ride well given the fact that they are probably just shy of center mount. also, i'm guessing that the 'modern' and 'standard' lines represent where the ball of your foot should be, is this incorrect? As for the final mount, i am going to clean the holes with some steel wool and then apply just a dab of white glue to each screw. Should this be good to go? thx.

but what about the rossis? think they're ready to be glued and tightened?

might be the camera angle or the topskin graphic being off-center, but the bindings look skewed to one side there, Glen. check the closeup pic of the area between the toe & heel pieces. that's what I mean.

I never even looked at the rossis... The word mount just prompted me to link the photo of you humping the skis.

I think UC is right, though. The bindings dont seem to be centered on the ski.

well the back portion isn't screwed in yet, i went down and readjusted it... it seems that both the front and back are probably off by 1mm or so. but i'm doing this more to see how a center-mount rides. i'm most likely going to have them re-drilled at 'standard' when i am out at Jane next week.

do you have any suggestions for which glue to use? thx.

i just went down and tightened the screws on them to check it out... with the screws in tighter, they sit almost perfectly centered.

The lines represent boot center line (parkand pipe {the front one}) and "freeride". You stated "ball of foot".

ah... so do i just find the middle of my boot (i.e. 325mm/2) and see where it sits in relation to the ski? thx.

edit: nm... i see the boot is actually marked in the center.

also, is there any recommendation on which glue to use and how much to put on?
post #13 of 17
I have seen other folks recommend plain white glue, and used that myself a couple times. You want something to seal up the hole in the wood core, but not permanently glue the screw in. Just squirt a little in each hole before tightening the screw -- just barely enough to coat the threads.

i would use the all purpose chaulk. my brother used that on his old board when his sidewall was starting to crack open

i mounted them using that caulk. hopefully it works well, the bindings seem to be quite snug.

it was a smooth mount until i tried to put the brakes back on. apparently i pulled the little teeth apart when i tried to widen the brakes. this made it a bitch to fit them into the bracket on the bottom piece... i guess you live and learn.

thx to everyone who gave advice.

i've only mounted a couple thousand skis and my prefered glue is Probond it is available at Home Depot(and everywhere else) it has an orange/black/white label and is kind of a light yellow color when wet, it is water soluble when wet but cures waterproof(unlike elmers and lepage and other "white" glues)
holmenkol used to make a blue glue that was really good as well but i haven't seen it in a while....

The "blue glue" is available at Tognar as "Binding COL" - you mentioned some of the key characteristics, but another important one is that it can dry anaerobically.
