For a minnesotan, your quiver is going to be pretty BA. You should probably move to a mountain area though. Just sayin...

Is he splitting a burton nug in the beginning of this clip? Sure looked like it. I was wondering about this myself with the squeeze box tech and all.

I'll go ahead and recommend a waterjet cut because mine came out awesome. It really does take out such a minimal amount of material it's hard to describe. When the board is put back together, the graphics line up perfect and it doesn't surprise me that you could thread a screw in the burton hole pattern after the cut.. I'm not sure if "weld a voile slider plate to aluminum bindings" can really be considered his own design though.

looks like he makes his own heel cups and mount brackets and welds those to the baseplate, then frankensteins whatever highback and straps you want on there, pretty sweet

I've seen Nick's work and it's impressive, and he's a good guy, to boot. There's a thread about him from last year here: http://goo.gl/TJKMN

What the hell mang.? Instead of stuffing your face wish peroshki and tuna, we should have done the seattle trifecta tour. Free parking at rei, go to sno con and FF.

Cool someone is doing that locally. Anyone see how much a cut only is? Sites not working for me.

Also, we're really working on improving the inside edge instalation and the waterjet process to give an even narrower cut....

Nick is definitely a good guy. He modified my Blaze bindings a couple years ago and they're still going strong. He does quality work.

Maybe I'll drop off that Salomon Burner 171 to get split!

And, yeah, Ale, that is a trifecta of money sink....REI, SnoCon, and FF. And there's damn good espresso right there too.
