just got a binding interface from a friend and when i went to start the mounting process, i realized that the rubber gaskets are missing. do i need them? if so, are they easy to find at bc shops?

hiked the mt rose bc in tahoe on sunday (pretty nice early season conditions) - it seems like there will be plenty more snow in the next few days...can't wait to try my new splitboard!

thanks

Don't know about the after market availiblity of the gaskets, but you could probably just pick up some roofing rubber a hardware store and trim to fit.

thanks...I actually found the puck gaskets (and slider gaskets) at The Backcounty in Truckee. Are they absolutely necessary?

The neccessity of any rubber depends entirely on what you plan to do with it :wink:

I pretty much have the same question. Is it really necessary to have gaskets for the pucks? I have the gaskets that go between the binding and the slider track, but nothing under the pucks themselves. It looks like Voile only sells gaskets for the universal pucks, but not the standard pucks. So, do most most people have gaskets underneath the pucks or not?

My statement about what you plan to do with it was a double entendre. One dealing with splitboards and one dealing with the splits (if you know what I mean.. whaaaa)

My thought would be (Others here are more qualified) that the universals (for production splits) need the gaskets because each puck only has to in line bolts to hold the puck in place. These pucks also have and angle disk on them much like on standard snowboard bindings so the rubber helps hold that inplace too. The DIY split pucks have 4 bolts holding them inplace and don't have a rotational center piece so you're probably ok without the gasket.

Cool, thanks Peacefrog! My board is almost complete. I just need to epoxy the holes tonight and then ptex them this weekend and then I'm done. Bye, bye snowshoes!

Sound like you've gat a DIY split. This may be a day late and dollar short but check out this thread viewtopic.php?f=16&t=5801. What board did you split?

Yep, it's a DIY split. Thanks for that link. I actually read this whole forum very closely for advice before splitting my board. I found a bunch a good info and saved myself a lot of headache. It's always good to learn from OTHERS mistakes! That gasket question was really the only question I had. Every other question I had I was able to answer by reading the forum. I split a 166 Ride Tempest. It's a little heavier than I would like, but it was a practically brand new wood core board that I got super cheap. I got the whole board and all of the hardware for $175. I can't even believe that I just made a complete split for under $200! I think it went really well too. I just epoxied the holes last night and I think everything came out pretty well, but it's still going to take awhile to cure. It looks bomber though. I used 4 t-nuts per puck on the front pucks (probably overkill), and three per on the back pucks because I was able to use a factory hole for each puck. I used some marine epoxy that says it cures underwater. It seemed to be just the right thing for the job. Now I just need to take it to my local ski shop and let the professionals do the ptex.
