How are you guys aligning your limbs before drilling the alignment holes when using Kenny's method ?

Run a string right across the center of both limb bolts over the limb ends with a weight on each end to keep it tight. And move your limbs center the string on the tips still keeping it centered on the riser.
My jig is prolly fancier than your Shredd.  :wavey:

You can sit the un-tapered limbs and the riser on a very flat surface and drill all your holes...  Or you can drill the bolt holes and do all your limb shaping and then string up the bow and if a limb is a tad out of alignment you can move the limb over a bit and then drill your holes... In the second method just make sure the a limb does not get knocked to one side and fold up on you.... Also in the second method all the pressure will be on one side of the bolt so your bolt hole will be slightly out of allignment...  So I would start with 5/16" holes in your limbs and then maybe widen them later on if the bolt does not line up to go in...

Yeah...  But mine is bigger...   ;)   :laugh:   I just have this machined last week...  I am gonna have more holes drilled in it...  Other than the pin holes, right now I have 5/16" and 11/32" holes drilled in it...

The bow looks good rich
do you use 5/16" dowels ?
I would rather fail at something above my means, than to succeed at something  beneath my means

 1/4" pins...

 Yes...  Clamp it to the table on it's side...  Tried using the drill press, the holes were accurate but it was a PITA...  I tried drilling with a hand held drill but my holes were off a tad...  I now use a 1 1/2" block of wood in unison with the jig and a hand held drill and I get precise holes...

I like that Sheoak :thumbsup: That full draw profile looks pretty sweet too!

Ritchie, I have a centering jig that I think I used once. Wasn't useful for anything I was doing. Be happy to donate it to your cause if you can use it.

That one would be the one you want with the removable pilots. put the 1/4 and the 27/64 or whatever in and drill both holes at once and get perfect spacing. will work but not perfect.

Nice set-up Stic... 

  Thanks Flem...  That is about as light as it gets... The color can vary... This is actually my first finished take-down...  I did not want to get too complicated...  I wish I would have put a smaller radius for the accents though... That would have put them a little more center in the riser...

Great info guy's
I did it the same way with either bingham jig, self centering jig as shown.
got tired of all that a few years ago invested in a used mill/drill for about 800.00 bucks.
rigged up with a DRO and I can drill pads to exact specs each time.
the mill also is good for flycutting pads, and wedge are of limbs.
