your local ski shop
Unless you 100% know what you're doing, and I deduce that by asking this question in the 1st place you're not, then you are better off by far taking yourself and your skis down to one of the above and shilling out a few quid to have it done properly.
You could end up inadvertantly ruining a perfectly decent pair of skis
Freezywater is correct.Typically it is a minimal cost to install bindings!
To really do a correct installation you must understand ski geometry, DIN level release, Rear tension adjustmet and finally front top level adjustment.
Unless you are at ease with power tools and understand the basic dynamics of ski design, go to ski shop!
Another reason why you shouls go to ski shop is that you must specialized tools!My drill bits all have a "depth gauge" limiter so that I never pass a given depth! All my drill are bevelled! I have a POSIDRIVE screwdriver which looks very much like a Philips screwdriver,,but is not!
The rear tension spring on all bindings must be set within a given range or else...
It is a question of YOUR safety and your legs!
Now if you decide to take it to a ski shop, I can tell you what to consider and check after the work is done!
better to get the local store to do it.
