So, before you go ahead and comment about what a dumb idea this was, keep in mind:
-I go through two pairs of skis every season, So this is not going to fuck up my skis.
-I work in a shop, it's not that big of a deal to have a base weld as long as it holds.
-Unfortunately about a month after doing this, my binding ripped off my ski and hindered them useless.
But is was a fun project, and I got a lot of laughs out of it.
