What's up with the string holding the hose in place in your form? :dunno: :dunno:
those are rubber bands to keep the hose attached to the top of the form, one less thing to handle during glue up.
caught between:If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it and can’t leave well enough alone.

Slow weekend, only picture was when applying overlays on arrow rest. Got all the other overlays on the riser as well, so will post pictures soon. The vote on which overlay to use was 6 Rosewood and 4 Maple Burl. So it will increase your odds when you see the pictures, unless of course my victim didn’t vote, in which case it was up to me so it really doesn’t matter.  Cheers!

Max - the bench in the picture is the original Black & Decker Workmate, and I’ve had it for over 45 years. Had to replace the boards a couple years ago, but it is the single most used tool in the shop. Other than myself. We’re aging together.

Asking for all victims  :archer2: do you prefer to do your own nicking point or can do tie on movable nocking points??

I’m fine with setting my own nock points. Great question, when my victim answers I’ll have that answer too.

I have one of these as well. It’s at least 30 years old too. Back then they were built to last.

Stic,
I’m good with doing my own knocking points.
I typically send bows out to anyone with adjustable knock points tied on as I’m usually shooting it a fair bit before it goes out. If they have a different draw length, grip, release, you name it, they are probably going to have to move it a little while tuning their arrows anyway. My 2 cents.

Mike just go ahead and put an adjustable  one on.  It will save me the effort of doing once it arrives. :biglaugh: :biglaugh: :biglaugh: :

 What on earth is a movable "nicking" point?
