.lenconYour tl;dr is half the size of the op
hippystinxthe glue is their rather to seal the hole than to actually act as an addition force for binding retention. Trying to keep water out of the core is a generally good idea.
.WashingtonWell yes, I undeRostand it keeps the water out, but is elmers glue the correct substance to use?and to put the binding back in its holes I wouldn't need to retap them or anything right?
division.bellWhy do you want to take the bindings off only to put them back on in the first place? Does this have something to do with your desire to regrease your FKS bindings?
If the originally drilled holes aren't compromised when you pull the bindings, you can carefully screw the bindings back on the skis. Just make sure the holes are clean and the screws go in straight and follow the original threads. Go slow and be sure to not over tighten as you'll likely strip out the threading.
And as jca stated above, I also use wood glue when mounting skis. Titebond to be specific.
jcayep, the binding's retention to the ski is from the screw expanding the hole. ive heard of people not using any glue, but I use wood glue personally.
.WashingtonNah I plan on trying to take off my barons off my crjs Cus they're old, shaky, and unreliable. So I have a ton money tied up in that touring setup, and I was gonna take the barons off and try to sell them, and if they didn't sell I would rescrew them back on. And if they did sell I would take them to a shop and mount some fks and then try to sell my skins too. So no it doesn't have to do with greasing. But thank you for the response. so have you ever heard of anyone using paper elmers glue ?
Fred_BearOr you could just not take them off until they sell....
hippystinxSo when I worked in a shops we also used tite bond. I personally have used anything from silicon to epoxy to seal a screw just depending upon what I had at the time. But wood glue is the happy medium
rozboonSilicon and epoxy are both a recipe for a bad time - if the silicon is too goopy to move around the screw you risk pushing a "nipple" on the bottom of your ski. With epoxy you can potentially bond the screw to the core which means if you ever want to remove the screw for some reason it makes a giant mess and leaves an oversized hole in the core.
MuggydudeDo not use elemers paper glue....
Get a good, waterproof wood glue. I personally use gorrila's waterproof wood glue
EggsOverSteezyExcept that gorilla glue expands and could push a gap in between the ski and binding.
Calb3rtelmers glue is water soluble, wood glue is water proof, and we all know snow is the solid state of water..
