/ Ski shop recommendation
I bought some new skis recently in an end of season sale. I'd like to get the bindings from my old skis mounted on them before next winter. Can anyone recommend a good shop/technician to get this done? I'm based in Sheffield but I'm not in a hurry and I travel about quite a bit.
I had to replace my old skis after the binding screws ripped out of the ski so I want to make sure the job is done well.
If you’re around Notts at all then check out Jon at the Piste Office.
As an alternative try Crossley Tordoff in Pontefract, it's a bit of an odd shop but they certainly know their stuff with ski equipment.
From my experience with boots, don’t take them to the place on Langsett Road.

Lockwoods in Leamington spa are great, if you're that way .....
Don't get the quiver killers unless you want your bindings ripping out again...they're just for tight people...
Just for context Jim 1003 seems to be the only person on record who has had an issue with Quiver Killers,
I think I'll go to piste office, it's not too far away and has most votes so far. I did get the old set fixed and used them for a few days but the metal layer has pulled away from the top and the wood-core was full of water. They're glued back together but I doubt they will hold up for long. The new ones are a similar ski and were half price.
Jim’s anecdote is not my experience, from skiing hard on big skis with downhill and pin bindings mounted with quiver killers.
If still needed we have most jigs and can do this for you.
