Hello,
just one question , that might have been answered before but i can find the info. What do you use to prevent the limb that is not taking the carbon or fiberglass from being glued to it? Do you use demolding wax? maybe plastic foil...

Sergio I coat the tenon with several coats of CA glue. then when it is cured 320 grit so it is smooth. Then about four coats of Johnsons paste wax. I even heated this one to about 90 degrees in the hotbox for curing.
Thanks guys. I am finding 1916s and 600s are bare shafting weak out of this bow. 40 @26. Go figure.  :dunno:
