GnarcotiksWhat facts are you coming off of?
First, the glue doesnt hold the binding or screws in what so ever. All the glue does it waterproof the holes so water doesnt get into the core and ruin the core.
Second, Even if it is reletively tight to screw them in, tighten them down until the binding sits flush, if the screw is still holding tightly and stops turning when the binding is flush than your fine. If you feel the screw getting very loose when your turning them then stop. At this point that is all the shop will do, if it doesnt work then remount them or try and get some money back from them.
Third, the PX12 and Axial 2 bindings are supposed to sit flush on the ski no matter what. I have never mounted these types of bindings and had the heel piece not flush with the ski. The very very back comes off the ski but that is how they are designed. The ski should be flush where the screws are going into the ski.
Okay so you contradicted yourself in your last paragraph, good job on that!! No shit the screw areas are flush I was most certainly talking about exactly what you mentioned about the very back of the heel piece that lifts up just a tad.
Now I never said the glue holds the screw in on the ski, you idiots are misreading everything I wrote. The glue (and yes I am aware it is a wood glue LOL) helps the screw to keep its formal position with the threading of the ski and prevents unnecessary pressure on the threading of the hole, why would it even be used if it had no purpos you botards?!
OP, trust me if anything. I mount Ahmets, Sean j's, rockwell nixons, b browns, and other's skis when they're in breckenridge which I hate to claim but it seems necessary here. There is a reason they come to me and the other tech at Slope Style, because we don't have the stupid NS knowledge the rest of these kids in the thread have lol.
