I have seen many people eyeball it with no consequence. It really all depends though on your comfort level and ability to cope with a re-drill should you f it up. Also use a punch, center drill or a tiny drill bit when starting the hole to keep the drill bit from wondering when drilling the final hole. I would also suggest not putting the clips too near the ends of the board. Set them back enough so that when the clips are extended straight out, the notches aren't exposed over the edge of the board. Saw an example of what can happen if they stick out too far at the Kali Party (hook casualty). Good luck.

I would take advise from people who have actually cut a board in half I dont think roughty has ever cut a board. but if he could post some picks of his work I will gladly eat my words
rughty is a friend of mine and was giving constructive advice and you just instantly shoot him down and try to make him look like an idiot for no reason other than to be a d-bag. Every post I read of yours tilts the shit outta me and I think you need to seriously check yourself.

So, you can dish it out but when it comes time to take a little back, you want to resort to threats of violence. Grow up... It is obvious that your hatred of me has been brewing for some time. You have been talking shit about every post I have put up from the beginning. Thought you might like a taste of it right back. I'm not afraid of you nor do I give a shit about the fact that you hate me. It is curious though what your motivation is after only meeting me one time. Though I wouldn't mind a little retribution myself, I have no intention of "settling this like men". I am a little more civilized than that and don't need to prove anything to you or anyone else.

I know its summer but lets try to remember we're all splitters here and this is splitboard.com!
I very much agree with The Ref!
How much reminding do you guys need that THIS IS SPLITBOARDING, and we're here posting BECAUSE WE'RE STOKED ON SPLITBOARDING?
Its absolutely amazing to me how the internet destroys basic human communication. If we were all face to face in a big room, there would hopefully be mutual respect and delight in each other. I've met aksltxlt, and he was a super rad dude!
Personally, I simply do not have enough time or energy in my life to invest in silly dramatics. Slogging takes enough energy...
It sounds like we all need to take a step back and realize that we're all awesome people.
I hope Rughty doesn't stop posting...
