Well I putz'd around this morning till company came and went out to dinner afterwards.Got home and strung her up.She's starting to come around.
   
   
Here she is turned around.
   

Finally got rid of the hinge.In the first pic  the left limb is the snakey limb and the right has all the woopdy-doos and the side to side wave. The snakey limb is bending pretty good other than the outside 1/3rd being stiff.The other limb just doesn't want to form a good arch but it shoots pretty good.Some hand shock but I still have to take some weight off the last 6" to the tips.

Thanks buddy. Not much else had worked,so I used a heatgun and told it what it was going to do.Guess it worked.    :bigsmyl:   I've drawn it a little over 100 times and it's still holding true.It even springs back when unstrung with almost no follow.      :eek:   A little more scraping and tweeking.

Thanks Timo. It's not so much a problem with the bow,it is more a problem with me.Last few weeks I haven't been myself.  :(  Can't seem to do much of anything and have it come out right.I hope to be on the road to recovery.  "[dead]"

Terry,I'm glad you liked it and I hope it served you well.

Thanks Terry and Hun. When I get some time after work I'll be doing some more tweeking on it.Hope I can get it to come around some more.I think it will when I start thinning down the last several inches to the tips on the right limb and the outer 1/3rd of the left limb.(I hope}    :bigsmyl:

Buddy, them poofy socks ya make are dang nice. The way Ferret and I rabbit hunt, it would take a long, long time to get enough for a sock! It would take us years to get enough for string silencers. It's all his fault though because my dogs don't like him and run off everytime we go hunting.

Chad maybe it is just the rabbits that run from the ferret. Rabbits and ferrets are not bosom buddies...Mac~
