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.

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.

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,

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.

Nice work, looks great. Here is my most recent split..... Splitboard.com Forums • View topic - My DIY Rossignol Krypto 164

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.

killclimbz It seems those discs are so so you're right. For most people they are deep enough that those holes will fill with wax anyway, if you are even worried about it.
