Jamie: what about the toe ramp. I wonder if it can be bent flat without damage so as to not interfere with the toe piece. I know that my toe pieces will not fit with the toe ramp the way it is.

Guys
I have just finshed a plate and are now trying to mount the bails to my prototype HB low profile binding.
Uses a Std voile slider plate and either bomber bails or modified Voile bails.
Will post pics soon. The prototype will have a fixed boot lenght but im thinking of a way to make it adjustable.

Cheers

Barrrows, I think you said you have a 28 boot?
This is the size I have.

I just put the toe bails on and saw they only overlapped the toe ramp by about 10mm. I didn't bend the toe ramp. I don't think having to bend it would affect it much. With the cant raising it slightly I tightened the bolts and it cinched on great. Have not had any issues yet.

I think you may be able to put your toe pieces on without a problem, or bend the toe ramp very minimally.

Adam, looking forward to what you have. Will be on snow till the end of July if you need any extra testing.

Thanks for those details Jamie. I am in a 28, but my toe pieces are much longer than yours. Certainly I will have to bend the toe ramp flush, but this does not look like a problem-it is clear that Will makes the toe ramp through bending (rather than machining) in the first place, so bending it back shoudl not be too difficult.
Now to see if I can finagle any surplus baseplates out of Spark...

Nice work there WM. Where did you get those cants? I've only been able to find ski cants from Tognar. The ones you have seem to be wider :thumpsup:

The cants directly under the bails came with the binding I was given.
The ones under the pucks I have are ski binding cants

Bummer. I thought you might have some super top secret source for better cants. What kind of bindings were they that came with those cants? Maybe they sell just the cants? I'm guessing whoever made those bindings are out of business like most of the carving companies. Thanks!

Add me to the list of interested people. It would be nice to leave pucks on the board and have the option of either hardboots or softboots and to keep the stack height as low as possible.
