here's my poor mans over lay clamp- I secure the overlay with plastic, add a pressure strip and then attach the hose with a rope- air up the hose.

Hi Tradgangers!
Just a little question to you bowyers: on a bowform,when you working with innertubes, what's the distance from the dowels to the surface of the form?

Greetings, Peter

DAG-NAB-IT don't do that After cooling to temp in the oven I cut the limb to 2" past knock with a hacksaw. Then I pulled the tape to check the limb was clear of spots under glass. When I pulled the tape I started from the end of the limb I just saw cut. The tape picked up loose glass fibers at the saw cut and pulled long fibers with it the entire length of limb.                                    From now on I'll start pulling tape at mid limb and work it towards tip and riser. Dang it Don't do this.

Anytime you cut your limbs off or profile taper or what ever ALWAYS hit those cut edges with at least 80 grit from butt to tip.

I got a couple more gadgets. The first one I call the short form used to put on riser overlays with the air hose. Second one is just a limb holder that can be used when filing and sculpting tips.

Some pretty cool jigs Mike!!

I have one , your plastic wrap ever come out of the box at a bad time? A pc of wood arrow thru the roll with washer and nut on both ends stops that crap!

Kenny, ya ever look at the ends of those boxes? There's a little perforated section on both ends that ya push inside and that stops the roll from coming out. It's on all types of rolls of stuff, wax paper, foil, etc.

Roy is right about the boxes having pushins. Still had come out though. I tell you what chaps my behind is its a nice day out and you got the big door open doing a glue up.and there aint a breeze anywhere so you go ahead and put the plastic on your form and pick up the glue up and you turn around and out of nowhere and poof a little gust blows the plastic off the form     :dunno:       :confused:

Yep but it don't cut it all the time. Maybe I'm too rammy too . LOL
Also it makes a diff which way the plasticroll is in there. Sometimes they put it in backwards .

Mike, I've had to put a strip of tape under the form to keep it in place. Hate when that happens too! LOL
