How you bend brakes... properly...
well im sort of mad... cause fedex just lost my heel piece for some p10s that i bought and i had ordered some wide brakes for them for my moships off here... but now since i only got one full binding... fedex is reinbursing(sp?) me and with that money imma buy myslef some new ones... so to go on my moships i was thinking of the
rossi Axial2 120 binders... and as you know they got a 80mm stock brake on em... moships have a 90mm width... it might be a bit sketch doing that but tell me if there is a certain way to do it... and i can just practice on other shit binders..
^^ oh yeah and apparently those wide brakes cant go on the newer rossi binders cause they for look binders with turntables and what not
I have been told numerous times that it's not really possible to bend that much... you would have to bend the current bend flat, then bend a whole new kink in it.
just pull them out so they're not 90 degree angles anymore.
Money's clean cause we scrub it good. With guns and gasoline we're gonna save the world. Nothing's obscene if we only close our eyes, boys and girls, welcome to this Joyride. -dmb
you know what im talking about... i think i saw some thread on TGR and the dude was pro at bending...he had pictures and they looked good... thats exactly what i was planning to do
theres a guy on TGR who will bend look brakes to your spec and send them to you..pretty sure iggyskier was posting in that topic a while ago - see if he knows??
mount the bindings with the brakes unbent, then get the ski in a vice, clamp a boot in the binding and crank the DIN. Then slip an old pole or piece of pipe over the brake to use as a level - bend the brake straight then re-bend as needed. Clamping a boot in the binding while you're doing this positions the metal part of the brake in a way that you're less likely to break something. Go slowly with the bending, and don't use heat.
