thanks guys... 

ztonz....   here is a pic of that design...  your standard r/d bow...  i don't post pics of the whole bow any more because most have seen it and it's nothing new... 

bue...  i thought it was purple and my girl at the time said it was not...  so after a little discussion she said look, this is purple and she showed me a sample of the color...  she was right...   :biglaugh:  so i called this color wine...

excuse my penmanship...  my computer got issues and my capitols don't work so well...

Don’t mean to hijack your thread Shredd, but your bow and one of mine looks quite the same, I think.

Nice looking bows guys.

I finally got a string on my first take down. Seems to be pretty quick and quiet. But may just be “new bow syndrome”.  :biglaugh:

One thing I’ve noticed. After I assemble the bow....the first time I draw it back I hear a click, then it is good from there on out. Is this common?

I put a rubber/fiber gasket between riser and limbs and put wax on pins.

That bow certainly is bending good. I been using potty ring wax between the pads and limbs and on the pins.
Always use a new one  :bigsmyl: or it smells like hiney ho.  :laughing:

Nice one Bvas. I like the bend. What taper are you using?

Thanks fellas.

Z-The bow has .003 taper, but has wider tips (9/16” at grooves) than normal for me.

Built a new target stand today. Just have a few holes to drill for my 3D woodchuck and skunk.

I put together my bday present from Mrs., Limb profiling just got a little easier. I have an oscillating spindle/belt sander that I have always used and could never keep a straight line on it. This should help.

Now, if I could just find some time to build a bow again.
