Dang it, I knew I shouldn't have listened to those guys last winter, I used 65# air for my 40# limbs. Boy I'm glad you signed up here Bill, it keeps us dummies straight. :roll: :lol: Welcome. Bill

Bill, I don't know how that stuff works, ya see you used 65# and you got 40#, go figure:?: Ya musta had to whittle on them limbs a lot to get 40#'s? :shock:

All I know, every time I use higher than 90# I get bows that miss weight low...maybe I crushing the core? :o

I'm a little intimidated having a "real" bowyer see my work... well, its JUST a kids bow...and cmon...I guess the kids you know aren't as strong as the ones I know! :D

Hey Bill...if you need a kids string let me know the length...

i agree bill, keeping air pressure consistent is key area to hitting weight....... remember when i was farting around with that PTM&W shnat....... that glue would give me a limb .020 thicker than the exact same cores and smooth-on..... add 10psi and the limb thickness were the same as was the poundage..... i also think 90psi is the way to go...... and it also creates great glue lines......... or lack there of :D

Your shop is way to clean and tidy and that's just not right!!...You should see mine, sometimes I need a metal detector to find a riser...

Ernie: "I'm a little intimidated having a "real" bowyer see my work." Nah, don't mind me, I put my pants on one leg at a time just like you do. Heck I might even learn something....or remember why I don't do that any more....either way it's fun to see others work!

"And yes Gino...I do consider you a "real bowyer"" ...."i'm just a garage ninnie that likes to tinker" Actually a mutual friend of Gino and mine, calls Gino a bow geek! Which I think is funnier than you know what! LOL


I do have one question for you, Ernie....Why such a high temp?
