Ok mine measures 70mm from the back of the channel to the start of the radius and 175mm wide at its widest point near the tail.
Bunnings have a jigsaw for $30 odd and a the glue for under $10, you will also need some masking tape.

Ok so it will be a 3 hole pattern, just keep away from the inserts. Same core as mine, nothing to worry about.

ETM this afternoon I was offered this old board for free, so I'll going to hold off from cutting my board up at this stage. I want try this one out first and see how it goes. I might still do the mod at later stage.

That's the one, its old school.

The bindings will be no good I hope that my burton mission bindings will fit on.

Were the bolt patterns simular back then? Can I get new bindings that would fit?
