Binding Screws - Page 2

post #31 of 39

So I just hit the slidewright web site hoping to see binding screws available in small quantities, but all I'm seeing is a $50 big pack from SVST.

 

Alpinord - What ever came of this discussion?  Is it possible to buy a few binding screws from you?  I need shorter rear screws for a Look PX series so that I can remove the lifter (I want to reduce the delta on these bindings).

 

If Alpinord doesn't have them has anyone else found a good source for binding screws?

 

P.S. Forget my post - I just found them at Alpinord's site - screws

Hey Noodler, can you verify what screws you are looking for? Also, if you find a supplier for the Look panheads, please let me know. (There's always cutting and grinding as an option.)

 

For another customer, I compared the panhead we carry (middle) with the ones from my Rossi Axial2s (same as PX12s, correct?):

The Look PX series uses two different types of screws on the binding heel piece.  In your picture, the screw on the left looks like the rearmost screw for a Look/Ross heel piece.  I need to check the length though.  The screw on the right looks like the front set of screws on the heel piece.

 

I had considered cutting and grinding, but was hoping to find the 'real deal' first.

 

So I guess you don't have the right screws for Look bindings.  I guess my search continues...

The other screws aren't the issue in matching (IIRC). It was the panheads:

Yes, the panheads are definitely the ones that seem to be in short supply (if supplied at all).  I'm hoping someone else will chime in here and tell us all where to get compatible Look binding screws.

Other designs seemingly in short supply:

 

Salomon 'slim-head'  toepiece with the smooth shank, in various lenghts.

 

And, of course, Railflex panheads in longer lengths.

Well I managed to scrounge up the right screws to remove the 6mm lifter from under the heel of my Look PX12 Ti bindings.  That leaves me with a negative delta (by only 1mm)!  My heel height is at 34mm (with the ski) and the toe is at 33mm.  I have a 0 delta on a couple pairs of skis, but this will be my first experience with a negative delta (some refer to this as the "gas pedal" setup).

 

Anyhow, I'm still in need of more Look screws for non-lifted mounts since I have more Look PX12 bindings stored away waiting on new fat skis for flat mounts.

 

BTW - The Look screw lengths for the heel piece are 21mm for the front screws and 36mm for the rear screws.  Substract 6mm from both for the new screws (used when removing the lifter) and you have what you need to get rid of the 6mm delta.

I just read this thread out of curiosity becasue I looked for the same screws myself about 5 years ago. I had a pair of Atomic Beta Race 9.34 skis that took the crappy propriatory Atomic bindings to mount on predrilled patterns on the Delrin plate risers of the skis. I took off some Marker bindings I had on another crap set of skis I did not like (Volkl p40 crap- I got them cheap off EBAY what a waste of a $1 winning bid) and had Marker Titanium 12.0 shock-system bindings attached to them. I took apart the bindings off of the original shocke mount platform and realized while the front 3 screw qwould work into the Delrin platform of the Atomics (with a new drilled hole position), the rear four heel mount screws were way to long and had shoulders on both the flathead AND panhead lenths so cuting them down to size was not a viable option.so....

 

These screws are a typical TYPE B screw but with one problem, they lack the knurled (lock washer type feature) section under both the flat and panheads of each type screw when inserterd into the binding metal face so as to not back out on their own. SImple solution I did was using some 2 part epoxy which is compatable with delrin and avaliable at any hardware store and dip the threads into it just prior to insertion and torque. Acts as a thread locker and five years later still plowing away.

 

edit- also, make sure you use stainless so they do not corrode.

When I took the heel lifer of my PX12 lifters I resorted to grinding them down. Now I'm going to mount a set of PX12 Jib without the rear lifter/shock absorber. I think these already use slightly shorter screws.
