Nice job on that ken, it came out great. Might be better than the hooter shooter anyway. Steve

E, Yeah it works 10times better than the last one and accepts odd shaped bows better due to the thick rubber grabbers in the clamps. theres enough there to conform around almost any palm swell or thumb shelf.

Man, I dont even wanna talk about that one :( I almost cant wait to give that one away to my nephew and never look back at that design again. I wish now that I wouldnt have let anyone even see it. :roll:

Oh I see...cause of the flush fit limbs and maching riser/wedges and such... Yeah...I think if a guy builds something like that and doesnt have some sort of really good "system"...he'd have to charge several hundred more dollars for it!!!

Anyhow...cool on the machine. I hope I have time to build one someday :roll:

ken- i'll have to get cote to post his process for doing the riser that way. the pics that i sent to you and e at the beginning of the winter was done with his equipment (other than the drilling) and he said it was really easy to put together. personally, i like that look on your riser better than the other one where it is not flush....... it is VERY nice. if you could come up with an easier way to do it (without having to buy a mill) would you consider building them that way?

Well in that case HELL YEAH! :D But I do have my eye on getting that mill anyway. Just to many things I already know will save me time and big jing in the long run.

well if it is time savings that you are after......... DON'T GET A MILL!!!!! it will slow you WAY down. don't take that just from me, ask bill. while it is accurate, it is a SLOW process. for production, jigs or a CNC router is the ticket.

Then you havnt seen the ways i have been doing things :roll:(pretty pathetic & probably funny to watch) Thing is, certain jigs dont really work for me because I have to build something different every time. accuracy is paramout and in that case for me slower IS faster.
The stacking measureing and grinding and then building the two seperate glueing jigs (that I'll never use again) for that bow, took way longer than if i could have just milled it all off at once to the proper limb angle and depth. Not trying to argue the point, just saying in my case constant jig use isnt feesable doing "custom" work all the time. having said that, I do know that it does take me longer to build em 1 at a time and in doing so the money isnt very good at all when you add it up.

Ken, Yep, it's the BOW I was asking about. That is one fine looking riser! That thing has got to be worth figuring out an easy way to build. I keep coming back to this thread to look at it. I finally just copied the pics to my hard drive so I could look at them whenever I want. That's the coolest looking bow I've seen in a long time. It combines the super profile of your drag racer one-piece with the innovative looking take down riser. Also, it has a rich, golden color to it...I'm not sure if it's the photography or the variation of zebra you found. Very cool. :D Jim
