Do it yourself. It's not that hard. I've done it in the parking lot at Cat drinking moonshine. I do recommend buying the drill bits that only go so far.

Thanks,

I just might end up doing that at this point. What did you do for placement? measure chord center, then put the top screw at chord center or back from there?

Cord Center under the ball of my foot. If you are using Voile 3-Pins that would probably put the rear of the plate right about chord center.

Seriously, as someone who has spent an hour+ in a shop, w/ a drill press and STILL messed things up, that is so cool. I love those pictures





And welcome Winston -- I am curious about those skis, what have they been like?

I wish I could give them a review.. I still haven't mounted them yet.

I will be heading out to the mountains this weekend, hopefully beech since I've never been there.

I would love to give them a try in between some boarding runs, but I'd have to get them mounted by then so we'll see.
