man, i cant believe more people didnt jump all over this. at least half a dozen people have asked me to make them cants and i keep telling them i am too lazy. :D

you guys wouldn't want ITM to drill them, because they need to be drilled for your exact stance.

Thanks for the support, Jack, burton!

Still got a couple left...

Maybe I should have said how awesome these canted pucks are so that anyone too busy riding to make their own (lots of snow flying around) or too lazy (like me for example) should buy a set of these.

I will edit this later to post a picture of my drilling and cutting. I marked, drilled then cut them and they are a great fit for both board hole patters at my exact stance width and angle for each of my boards (mojo and old burton).

I will make my own later, but inthemountains canted pucks are perfect, fit tight, wonderful...now open the creaky wallet and buy his last set.

When I bought the canted pucks made of white UHMW material from Inthemountains I did so because I was too busy to make my own. I wanted a set that would allow me to convert my used old burton custom split to voile without board drilling. This one set of pucks now can be used on either system with holes for each setup at the angles I wanted...you too should buy some of his canted pucks.

<a href="http://s256.photobucket.com/albums/hh192/Mumbles24/?action=view¤t=DSCF1470.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh192/Mumbles24/DSCF1470.jpg" border="0" alt="Rear view of canted puck"></a>

Black holes are for Voile, red for Burton, both red and black are holes used for both. Voile has two holes per puck half, the Burton has three or four holes. I installed and then tested these in the house wrenching them very hard for a 215# rider and they are bomber tough.

<a href="http://s256.photobucket.com/albums/hh192/Mumbles24/?action=view¤t=DSCF1469-1.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh192/Mumbles24/DSCF1469-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Front canted puck"></a>

<a href="http://s256.photobucket.com/albums/hh192/Mumbles24/?action=view¤t=DSCF1473.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh192/Mumbles24/DSCF1473.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

Regardless of the thickness of the puck at the hole locations I drilled and countersunk the holes such that the same length screw could be used, no need for varying lengths and more spares to carry.

Hey Nice Work Mumbles!
I would have routered those gaps a little bigger had i known you were going to dip into the high points. Those high points gave me a bit of grief on my own pucks...which is why i trimmed them down on the ones I sent out.

As to Jogi's question on the overlap...it sure was noticeable. Yesterday I had my split-swallowtail out and got onto some firm snow under 10cm of fresh. I was carving like one of them Euro-Carvers...first time i'd ever done that...and the split felt like a solid board.

I have to say "thanks" to Jogi for the inspiration on the overlapping puck idea. I will be installing these on all my splits this week.
(I'll take the credit on the inspiration for integrating the cants :-))

And for those of you who don't want a wedge under there (though i can't understand why...they make everything sooooo comfortable)...you could always trim the wedgey bit off...

regards,

Here we see the integration of great ideas. This mod has overlapping pucks, thanks Jogi, as the first mod. This may add some rigidity and prevent individual board half slop. The second is the fact that this is a one piece puck with the 5* canting integrated into the same block of material. The third is that this allows for use on an older burton board without drilling of new holes in the board. I guess the fourth is that I'm drilling the pucks to fit both the burton and voile boards. The countersinking of the holes was tough at the higher points of the routered pucks, but really ended up pretty nice. Not bad for a 20 minute project per puck. The versatility this brings me is tremendous, not to mention simplifying setup on either of my boards. If you think this might work for you thank Jogi, InTheMountains and now Mumbles. The ideas of three becoming a virtuoso of possibilities.

Hi Gunnar,
Good timing...I'm stocking up on some uhmw this weekend, and will grind some out in the next few weeks.

How many of you guys want a pair?

I would like one flat, for the front. And one with cant and lift for the rear. How much heel lift do your material allow?
