Can you tell me what 4 mm would do, forward and backwards?

Thanks

One of the local ski shops here managed to mount a pair of brand-new skis with ONE of the bindings
three-quarters of an inch (about 18mm) forward of the other one.  Now that's something even Horvath would
notice.

My ski shop in trying mount a pair of SP800 bindings to a pair of new skis
firstly misdrilled the holes for the rear bindings about 1" too far
rearward, though this arose mainly because of the propulse arm on the
bindings forcing the location and distance between the front *and* the rear
pieces.  The absolute distance between front and rear bindings on *normal*
bindings being less critical because they have boot heel adjusters, and
don't have this pulse arm connecting the two together - I can see how they
made the mistake as they weren't stockists of my particular bindings.
However, having made that error, they then tried to re-drill the holes for
the rear binding on each ski and ended up making one about 6mm further back
than the other.  This was human error plain and simple.  Once I pointed out
the mistake, they replaced my skis immediately without quibble for a better
pair to compensate for their error.  OK, the mistake shouldn't have happened
in the first place, but we are all human.  Their follow-up customer service
was superb - Something that will obviously count in their favour in the long
run.

A experienced mounter would line the boot midsole and the ski midsole mark up
and disregard the installation tools midsole mark.
