Dean I have been shooting those 2613s for 25 yrs in one bow or another there like shooting logs but a great arrow the target guys caught on and they have gone up in price and harder to get but they shoot good at my long draw !

You should squirt a sealer coat on that thing, cause I think we all want to see it pop  :bigsmyl:

Well as soon as it gets warm enough to open the shop door I will put a coat of vinyl sealer on both of them I got the handle pretty much where its going to be maybe a few minor changes sense its going to be a blind and stand bow I keep shooting it setting and standing then mark the spots I dont like and recarve usauly takes 350-400 arrows to get right !

Ritchie, that's a good system to get the grip right.  I might run out of riser tho…. LOL
Stay sharp, Kenny.

Well I wasn't going to make another bow for a while but some times I just wake up with the bow half made in my mind...lol  so figured I will do one more on this thread and call it a day , but this one is going to be one of Kenny's 2nd Gen D/R bows 64" @31  46-51 lb test swag...lol it will be wood/carbon/glass I figured my stack swag at .335  I was going to make a different riser similar to the FH but sense this one is a test bow I'm going to stick with a standard one peace wood riser in Mozanbique keeping it simple also fine tuning a templet for the robo sander not sure I'm going to use it yet , well post as I go !

Was doing some mill work for the house and snuck in ruffing out the riser for the D/R & tip overlays for the FH ! I have to cut it short to get ready for work another 3" of snow tonight for ST Pat day , unbelievable  :banghead:

Got a good solid half day for bow work and fun got the tip overlays glued up ruff shaped limbs narrowed took the beard shaver to some velcro pad dots & put them on for a arrow rest shot about 80 arrows & ruff fit the D/R riser to the form & cleaned it up ,later on maybe scive joint the lams for the D/R maybe get this carbon D/R glued up over the week end !

Sorry Ritchie, I'm too lazy to scroll back, are you using woven carbon under clear glass?

No Flem I'm using Gordon's uni under green glass , but I did think about using stabile core under clear glass, nothing to fancy on this D/R just trying to dial the stack in for carbon & the D/R ,I have every thing here to do the stable core under clear glass just not enough time to build every bow I want  :archer2:

Be sure to get plenty of glue on the stable core. Myself and another person did it under clear and got some air bubbles. I notice when putting glue on it seems to soak it a bit. May be the weave  :dunno:

Thanks for the tip Mike stable core does look like it could suck up the glue with all the perforations !

I thought I would mention that any body that is thinking of using Mozanbique wood for a riser the stuff is very tuff on blades even with a new blade the stuff smokes as you cut it ,it's one of the densest wood I have used tough as nails but ruff on blades it smells like a camp fire as you cut it this is the second riser I have made with it !

Never heard of Mozambique wood. Had to look it up. Goes by quite a few aliases. I'm familiar with Shedua. I'm always amazed at the names they come with for lumber. I was at a local hardwood dealer last week and bought a plank of wood they were calling "Yellow Hercules"! No such thing. Looks like Yellowheart to me.

Lol I will call it African blade burner but I really like the wood its Beautiful and a solid wood I will just put on a dull blade for future use or maybe try a 3/8 blade I keep a 1/2 blade on all the time now just is a good compromise for me !

I got a little more time on the D/R test bow but Im really chasing with the fit the block was a little shy on thickness so I couldnt get the completé radius on it when I cut it so its been a lot of work getting it fit up still chasing the fit but getting closer I see a templete sander in my future 😃
