Found this tonight. Gotta love guys who tried to sell skis that their great grand cousin gave them to get rid of on ebay.
I wrote to her and signed my name 'Dave'. I filled her in on what a binding was, and what they were worth. Here is the reply:
Hi Dave, Thanks for that. As I say I know nothing about skis except they are for snow. But when I have listed them there is a form like thing and it says have they got bindings or not. At a guess I would have thought they were the things for the shoes - binding the shoe to the ski, but I couldnt be sure. Thanks for the information though. Have a nice christmas, Sue.
Doing my part to educate the masses to the ski world.
