That one must have had some bend near the handle.
Better luck next time

yup.... the first limb that blew was pretty benign....now the second limb i had to put it in a vise and work pretty hard to get that one to blow. :o i got my info, but i sure wish i'd have worn a leather gloves... :oops: my hand was numb for a good ten minutes....longer fades and a power wedge fixed up the design error....got a shooter out of the next one....number 3 out of the form hopefully will see Wisconsin.... 8-)

Are you going to try for a laminated riser again for #3?

Ya i think i will..... the footed risers you see a lot of them out there... i want something different and I like the extra strength the laminated riser has...
I just like the looks of them better too.... :D more work by far.... but that's alright with me...

Just for the record bro.... They aren't technically a bow till they shoot an arrow. :lol: ...so that makes yours "Sasquatch" 001.... the next one out of the form may not become a bow either....i'm going into the redline zone on this one... 8-)

I can't wait to see it Kirk. Once you get the bugs worked out of that laminated riser it should be ready to take whatever turbo charged limbs you cook up. I wonder if you could turn that design into a take down?

i already did get the riser bugs worked out bro.... i cooked this one here at to high of temp and used white glue on the laying up.... there was a design flaw too, and had to extend the fades out some.... i've got some zebra i'm bending for the next one.... i'm hoping for less excitement on this one. :D
