Seeing as there are no threads on fks/turntable bindings and forward pressure, I figured I'd start one that's both a bit informative and also asks a question.
After perusing over the TGR threads available on this, I'm aware that the screws that become visible when your heel piece is engaged are the mechanisms utilized to lengthen and shorten the heel housing. This, in effect adjusts your forward pressure.
I know that the forward pressure marker (the white thing) should be flush with the two notches on the heel piece. If it's not, you need to adjust the forward pressure equally on both screws so that the marker sits flush with the nothces.
My dilemma comes from getting new boots that are 1mm longer than my previous boots. Seeing as I wanted to mess around with my bindings during my down time, I began playing around with the forward pressure and noticed that no adjustment was needed. However, I did notice that on one of the binding's metal structure that supports the heelpiece when engaged ( the source of multiple crushed fingers), was not resting against the base of the heel piece. After playing around with the forward pressure adjustments, it seems that the heelpiece was possibly not mounted close enough and even at the closes setting, the forward pressure is not enough to push the metal clip down. Nevertheless, as is evident from the picture above, the forward pressure marker shows that it's set appropriately. Is this something I should be worried about or should I just chalk it up to human error since there wasn't a jig large enough to mount the binding correctly.
Hope this helps some of you out there.
