 Post subject: 5* Canting plates for beneath my Burton interface

I have created some 5* canting plates for beneath my burton interface. I have to get the longer screws to mount them before I can ride them though. My question is, since my shop is limited to a mitre saw, I was only able to make them 4" from end to end. This is limited by the cutting clearance of my saw. I simply used two of these identically cut wedges and put their union seam at the centerline of the splitboard. I wanted to have the canting plate the exact size as the burton interface baseplate to reduce any overhang that might cause rocking or torsional forces. Any recommendations on how to make them larger? I thought of making a set of guard guides and cutting them by hand, but that could lead to more inconsistencies. Thanks.

I got my hardware (love Ace Hardware) which were the M6 pan head bolts with 4mm hex wrench heads...much more durable than flat or phillips heads.

Here is the 5* canting plate under the burton crescent rings set at 15* forward angle
<a href="http://s256.photobucket.com/albums/hh192/Mumbles24/?action=view¤t=DSCF1384.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh192/Mumbles24/DSCF1384.jpg" border="0" alt="5* Cant at 15* forward angle"></a>

Here is the heelside view. Canting plates are about the same width as the burton baseplates, but they are not long enough to reach the toe or heel. Although I know this excess material may not be needed and will add weight, I think it may be better for stability. I can always drill out the canting plate to remove some of the material. They certainly don't need to be solid throughout the base.

Both baseplates canted at 5* from the heelside edge view. After I test this version I will work on canting not only inward but also heel to toe if I feel like that is necessary. Now if I can only get out of the house to try them out.

You can't tell, but the entire burton baseplate/crescents and u brackets are brand spanking new...thanks to Lisa converting to voilie on her burton. I have enough spare parts to build another board and a half...or parts to keep this working for the future until I get more Christmas money for my ?Mojo?Prior?Venture? Who knows.

Anybody still riding an old burton setup that needs a set of cants?

Love it! Now that's an esoteric mod! PM JimW if you need any more burton interfaces. He has a stockpile and I heard that he switched to Voile this weekend!!

SF, need I ask how you did that damage and how you fared doing it? My friends used to call me Mr. Fixit and brough me all their mangled edges, ripped out inserts, delaminations and core shots that we often experienced riding in Europe's southernmost resort, Sierra Nevada.

What are you doing with that now? Any salvation for it, it looks pretty involved.

I'll keep Jim in mind for burton stuff, I just bought a mojo but hope to keep the burton custom split and run the burton so long as it lasts and I have parts to keep it going.

Actually, that's Jimw's board. That's why he may have spare interfaces. Check out the newly expanded Laurel Mountain Trip Report. He actually rode this thing for 3000 feet, which says something about that burton board!

He hit a rock hard near the entrance. You could see the top glass pulling up everytime the board flexed.

Damn, how wide and steep is that chute? I have not been to anything that looks like that since the Austrian Alps. I'm sure there is sick stuff like that in the PNW, but I'm yet to enjoy it.

Sorry to hear about JimW's bad burton day, but that gives me a good feeling on my tank burton custom split 165. It is heavy, but inspires confidence.

Jack, you are so wrong for posting that pure drooler on right in front of my face. How is a guy supposed to ride with his hydraulics fully engaged?

Where is that anyway, and are those tracks yours?

definitely not my tracks, actually i am pretty sure that is point-release debris, tracks would probably be too small to see.

Point release debris...hey, I could be point release debris.

Actually rode at Hurricane Ridge today and saw quite a bit of this point release debris as the temps rose and the snow softened a lot. I'm thinking there will be a frozen crust on top tomorrow. Glad we got it was the gettin' was good today.
