Here is the board nearing completion with the epoxy setting up. I decided to not put the p-tex discs in as it seems most people have trouble with them falling out.

All four of my DIY are with epoxy. Sand them flush or even close to flush and get a base grind. The base grind will flush everything up together and put a solid layer of wax on everything. I cant say I have ever felt anything noticeable when riding from having exposed epoxy. Im sure it would have to be on some groomed terrain to really even think your feeling it. Nice work, looks great. Here is my most recent split..... http://splitboard.com/talk/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=16136

no need to tee nut that out side hole on the pucks, i've been running inserts and a ski screw for a couple years on three boards, no issue.

i also just have epoxy over the teenuts in the base, only thing i could get to stick.

Thanks. Your split looks great.

How did you remove the excess epoxy over the t-nuts? I thought a razor blade would just slice right through it, but it is proving to be a little more difficult.

I didn't even think of a ski screw for that. I guess if I decide to move my stance forward or back, I will go that route. I have already installed a t-nut on each puck so that part is done. Same question for you as I asked above.

Thanks,

Jason

I have sliced through it while it was still soft, but I wouldn't recommend it. It can have some irregularities. Just let it dry completely and sand it. Get a round sanding drill attachment for your drill and just sand it down. It may rough up the base around the spots, but that can be cleaned up with wax.

I used ski screws for the climbing bars too leaving me with tnuts for the up hill brackets. I'm thinking you could get away with a ski screw for the middle one

Screws at a determined length that won't go through the base usually 8-9mm. Voile used to include them with their screw in pucks.

The type of screw used to mount ski bindings, they come in many different lengths. You could use helicoils or inserts with machine screws if you planned on swapping parts at some time.
