I have a pair of Neox 6-14 bindings installed on a pair of never-used skis. The Neox plate is mounted directly onto/into the top of the ski - no additional plate/riser/anything on the ski itself. I've taken the bindings and plates off. Of the 8 mounting screws per binding the 4 front (toe piece) mounting screws all are the same and about 14 mm long. The front 2 rear (heel piece) mounting screws are about 18mm long, and the back 2 rear mounting screws 20 mm long. All of the screws, front and back, when screwed in to the plate fully protrude about 8mm below the bottom of the plate.
I have a pair of Metron 11 B5 skis that I acquired without bindings, but they were previously mounted with Neox 4-12's. The Metron's have an integrated riser that's drilled for the Neox 4-12's, and the drill holes match up perfectly with the Neox 4-16 plates. I'll need some skinnier brakes, but everything else looks good to just move the bindings over. Here's a pic partway through the process...
Have a few questions...
All the Neox 6-14 mounting screws seem to be in good shape (threads/heads intact). Does anyone know if the 8mm effective screw length below the plate is appropriate for mounting the plates onto/into the Metron's integrated plastic riser?
I was thinking I'd use something like Loctite Blue on the mounting screws when I install the plate on the Metron, but it's not recommended for use on plastic. Epoxy seems like overkill. Anyone use anything else to help keep mounting screws in a plastic plate firmly in place?
Whoever installed the Neox 6-14's on the previous skis put a little dab of some kind of glue directly under the plate where the mounting screws went through into the ski. Good idea? If so, what kind of glue?
Atomicman has already kindly offered me some advice on some of this through PM, but I thought I'd run this by the board to see what feedback any others might have based on personal experience.
