screwdriver for Salomon 916 binding DIN screws

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I need a new screwdriver for turning binding DIN screws on a Solly 916 binding or a Rossi FKS 185 since mine was 'borrowed' and not returned

real9999 suggested a 10 or 12 version of this on another thread:

http://www.wihatools.com/308serie.htm


does anybody know what the actual manufacturers use (Solly or Rossi) or or can suggest another alternative before I pull the trigger? the WiHa screwdriver looks like it would fit the bill fine, just wanted to see what others are using

thx

Bindings are adjusted using a #3 Pozidrive screwdriver bit. You should be able to get one at the local hardware store. A Pozidrive is not as pointed as a Phillips but looks similar (more blunt). Using a phillips screwdriver can strip the slots. If all else fails, there is one here at an above average price, or here as a kit for less money. Don't confuse with a Phillips #3 (although a blunt Phillips #3 will work in a pinch on undamaged screws).



Edit: Oops, you want the large sloted for the DIN sorry.

The biggest flathead you can find should do the trick. Rossi/Look has a tool for their turntable adjustment that you may be able to buy from their dealer parts catalog or from a backshop catalog, it offers really good leverage and I like to use it to crank the 920 Solly's up. If leverage is an issue for you get a driver that has either a hole in the handle that you can slide another driver through to make a t-handle or a driver with a shaft that isn't round to use a channel lock wrench to add to your leverage. Hope that helps.

Edit-- I'm a dummy I followed the link you posted and that Wiha driver is perfect. Buy it. You can chase after one of those rossi/look tools later. I don't remember which size it was but I ordered those when I ran a repair shop that did lots of Solly stuff and it worked great.
Have fun

Ground-down TECO bracket?

I use either monster flathead or very large phillips. I have not found a hardware store yet that has even heard of a posidrive. (And I have asked and searched in many.)

Go to SEARS, they sell and have instock #3 Posidrives. Just look at the tip of the screw driver, posidrives are easy to spot from standard philips by the tip.

My socket set has a couple of posidrives. I bought it about 10 years ago!

WIHA makes some really quality stuff. They ship fast too. Just got a couple flatheads from them and the things are burly!

It's a goddamned screwdriver. Get a big flathead, I've never had problems using whatever was in the toolbox to adjust bindings. I'm as much as a gearhead as anyone, but a screwdriver? I've only seen shop guys use big flatheads anyway.
