It really doesnt matter which one you use, I used the wider measurement on my DIY. If you use the smaller measurement its just a matter of rotating the inner disc on the puck 180 degrees.
Both work exactly the same.

IMO the best method is to get an undrilled puck from firstlight and use 2 of the 4x4 holes and drill one extra t nut on the outside. This reduces the number of holes you put in the board by 4 and you actually have 4 more screws holding the pucks down

My only issue with using Adam's pucks is the Brigade only has a 4X4 pattern on the board. It looks like one of the halves of the pucks needs to use a 2X4 hole. If I use a 15/-15 stance, will I have enough puck to use the 4X4 holes on both halves of both pucks? Hopefully you understand what I mean, that sounds stupid when I read it back.

I'm probably over thinking this for my first splitboard. I may just use the DIY pucks and see how the board turns out. If I really like it, I will cut a more specific pow board go all out with inside edges and Adam's pucks.

Thanks,

Jason

It will work. There is no reason you have to avoid the outer section of the puck because the screw gets countersunk anyway.
Like i did here. That is 4x4 @ 18 degrees

Thanks ETM. I may go that route. Did you mill that piece in your picture or is that from Adam West? I am considering buying some delrin and milling them myself. It's probably no cheaper to do it myself, I just like making crap.

I got the blank off adam but you can easily make it from scratch if you know what you are doing. It machines really easy but makes a lot of mess lol

I went ahead and bought the pucks from Adam. I decided to support a guy doing the leg work rather than me just copying what he is doing and he gets nothing out of it. What a good samaritan I am, huh?

Anyway, here is my progress from today. Stickers on for the chinese hooks, center punched and ready to drill.

T-Nuts prior to expoxy.

The far right one I tried to use the forstner bit in the drill press. Didn't work, so I went with the 3/4" wood boring bit for the remaining. Worked much better.

Cool project. You going to use that on powder days at Perfect North? Perhaps hike the north face and drop in.
