Yep, unless you're planning on becoming a tech, don't waste your time. Not that it's a waste of time, but if you're mounting a couple pair of bindings each year, you'll forget far too many things, and it could be a critical detail. I still do my own, but there are a couple things to consider - 1.) access to the correct jigs, 2.) correct testing tools (do you REALLY trust yourself??), 3.) technological learning curve - bindings change design/function faster than ever now. It's tough to keep up. The basic idea stays the same, but EVERYTHING else changes.
