I started a "side" biz in my cabinet shop some ten years ago called Glide Inc. Mainly doing tunes and repairs for friends and randoms in exchange for beer and a few dollars here and there. Now I build a fair amount of splits, again mostly for friends but more and more strangers. (Glide Inc Custom Splitboards - on FB) I generally build them when time allows and since snowboarders tend to be kinda slackers most often they are slow in getting their kits. I used to just hop on Voiles site and download templates, drill them all, seal them and wait for hardware. That was my plan yesterday but they removed the templates from there page. Wish I had ran off some copies. You can purchase a set for 4 bucks, but I think that borders on gauging. After all, a Voile kit is going to be purchased and installed???

Anyone know where I can get templates?

Sure was looking forward to a Sunday afternoon in the shop listening to NPR and making splits :(

Shoot me a PM with your email. I have most all of them except the new 2 hole DIY pucks.

They sell just the sticker/template packs as well, we alsways keep a few spares in the shop.

Why not just setup an account with them and make a few bucks on selling the kits? Also easier to order single pieces, sticker templates etc

Thanks for saving my Sunday Zude. The templates are actually on the site only now they are attached to the individual products, all but the diy pucks. No biggie as I found a few xtras in a parts box. Nice of them to respond so quickly to my e mail.

I did start the application process online but I suppose I should register a trade name and add it to my existing corporation (Construction co.). Seems like allot of work for what my wife calls "another one of my not for profit endeavors".

Building boards is meditation.
