Marc I have been giving it some thought :o but if we do it would just be fill in type work for our regular machining jobs.You don't know where I could find some one to tryout a left hand version do ya? :twisted:

BK If enough guys reply that they think they will want more in the future I will keep them in stock but if the interest is dying off then I will wait awhile to run another batch and then probably only
10 pair or so at a time.

I never did post them but I do still have a few sets of the plates for the Black bear compounds

Here is an old PSE that we put a set of limb pockets on.

Might know a lefty that would shoot one!!!

Those PSE limb pockets are sweet. Once they are finished you would never know it was an altered riser.

Mann, if you're going to get set up to do a run, you're best to make a pile of them. You can make 20 sets for slightly more cost than doing 15 sets. The material doesn't cost much and they don't take up too much space. Just toss them on the shelf and wait for the next wave. It does come in waves. As soon as someone posts an ILF build-along, people go nuts and have to have them all at once.

I like the geometry of that converted PSE riser!

Thanks, I like the old PSE also :) The guy that owns the indoor range that we shoot at in the winter gave it to me. As soon as I find a decent set of used limbs I intend to give it back to him and try and get him to shooting the recurve and longbow stuff.
Feral your right about the inserts and when I do run another batch I will likely run 30 -50 pair as before.
I had one of the new risers dipped last week but have not got pics of it yet, it looks pretty cool in a carbon fiber dip with the TT extremes on it :D

Mann, Do you make a one piece bezel and bushing that will attach all the way through the limb?

Sorry but no.
What do you have in mind? glueing it in permanent?
If so you might want check out this thread of Apex Predators.
He is countersinking directly into the limb by doing a phenolic overlay.

I saw a guy post this on another site, and I thought it looked like a pretty good idea. I just don't know if there is anyone out there that makes one.

Yes thats exactly what I thought you had in mind. ;)
Due to the extra material cost and the fact that it now has to have a second operation, It would be at least 3 times the money. When we do most of these parts we run 300+ pieces at a time, so that we can keep the cost as low as possible. If enough interest in them were to surface I would run them but
I don't think very many guys are going to be willing to pay that.
I think we ran like 300-350 of the bezels that I am selling now about 5-6 months ago and I still have probably 80-100 left. So they are not a huge seller to start with.
I could make a special run for you of 10-12 pieces, but I don't think you would like the price. :twisted:
Thanks
Jim
