    Anyone have a good trick for trimming and removing the overflow of epoxy from the bottom of the board? On my last split I used a razor to chip away followed by a hand grinder with sand paper. It seems to work okay but was hoping there is a better way to get a smooth finish and flush to the Ptex.

    A sharp 1″ wood chisel, held flat to…[Read more]

    Heh, I’m just trying to imagine the faces if I turned-up on splits at one of the local sci di fondo (nordic) tracks. I think they might choke on their lycra. Might be fun though… 🙂

  • OK, OK, I’m convinced – T-nuts and ptex discs it is, handy really as I have both already.

    On the subject I was thinking about trying to cut out the hole in the ptex in the base larger than the t-nut hole, so that the (appropriately sized) ptex disc would be glued to wood core around the edges as well as the bottom of the t-nut/epoxy. The idea…[Read more]

  • Shame about the Snoli inserts – they look nice with the ptex bases. Do you reckon 7mm ones will go without grinding? Still mean using shorter screws but hopefully enough thread to do the job…

    Thanks both 🙂

    I’ve got a couple of weeks before the bindings, pucks, catches, etc. arrive so I’ve been playing around with a couple of Dremel bits on an old ski and have made a little jig that seems to make cutting the rebate and channel for fitting some edge pretty easy to do. I’ve given up trying to find the edge that I know I have *somewhere*…[Read more]
