Yeah so many holes it's incredible.

Definately looking forward for the jig.
Customer support said they should receive some in a couple weeks.
Also got previous hardware from Binding Freedom so I might as well mount with inserts :-)

I got the inserts and insert kit direct from Meidjo.
The external threads are a slightly different (metric) pitch.
I talked to a ski tech at a major retailer (not REI) who said she used the same tap for both US and Metric insert thread pitches.
Anyway, I like the Meidjo Insert install tool. Takes a bit to get proficient with, but makes it easy to install the inserts and give a solid lock at the exact depth (has a shoulder that stops the insert tool, like the specialized binding screw drill bits have).

I haven't used their insert tools, but I really like the quality and design of the screws. The ones I have use Torx, which I really like! Binding Freedom uses Pozi which I also like, just not as much as Torx.
