Park Tools Adjustable Torque Wrench Info & Concepts

The Park Tool torque driver is useful in any toolbox. Generally, 1/4″ hex drivers are very versatile and compact since they can hold and drive an unlimited array of hex bits and sockets for all kinds of uses, including ski, snowboards & bikes. We’ve been looking for a torque driver that is not sport specific, adjustable for variety of ski, snowboard, bike and other times when a torque wrench is useful and found one in this tool.
Relative to skiing, it’s a huge bummer, can get spendy and time consuming repairing a spinning binding screw or cracking a top sheet.  Same for over tightening your nice carbon and lightweight bike components that you spent a lot of money to own. Many manufacturers recommend 4.5Nm for alpine binding screws.

Paper or Clear Plastic Ski Binding Templates

A very useful resource for DIY binding mounting and comparisons is paper (or clear plastic) binding templates. Not only are they great aids for accurately laying out binding holes for drilling new holes, but you can also use them to compare existing hole clearances relative to new bindings, binding combinations and discovering unknown original bindings by the hole patterns on used skis.

Finding Your Ski’s Centerline

One of the few things consistent between all of the various shapes, sizes, side wall and top sheet shapes, binding locations, and camber/rocker, etc of skis and snowboards is that they are symmetrical relative to their longitudinal centerline.

Drill and Tap Guides for Hand Drilling

Clamped Wall-Lenk drill guide used for ski binding inserts.

Accuracy for hand drilled holes, not only with location, but also depth and vertical alignment are easily assured with drill and tap guides. In softer materials (ie, skis and snowboards) and using coarse threaded, alpine binding screws allow for minor adjustments and are a bit more forgiving than the accuracy required when drilling and tapping for screw inserts. Guides are still a good idea when drilling your precious boards for ANY binding mounts.
