I Need a Binding Bridge

Post by skimann20 »

Hello All. I'm looking for a binding bridge. Anyone got one kicking around or know where I can find one. I have a feeling I'm going to have to make one...

Aaaaaahhhh. That is so you can put it through a base grinder with an autofeed. Gotcha!

Or take the bindings off and plug the holes temporarily?

I took my first pair to the local shop, who have an excellent Montana machine. The tech and I just removed the bindings and plates and worked them as flat stock. He's of the opinion that the bridge is more pain that it's worth. The guy grinds a lot of skis in a year and has been doing it for many years.

The next two pair I had ground before I mounted bindings.
