I asked Brandon how he set his table up. He is using the bolts that hold the end cover on the motor. Being as the cover is crowned you need spacers to get above the crown. Then probably some support for the outside of the table. I have my table allready machined out of 3/8s steel. The mounting holes in it will have to be countersunk and a guy could use the same flat socket head bolt type bolt that you use on bow limbs. My guess they will be metric thread. When I get ready to do mine I am going to take the motor off the machine and have my machinist to get a bearing and fab a wheel and maybe even drill the table holes. I think the outer support can be attached to the stand that the machine is on now. I may have to rent a Mig welder for a day to do that. :) :idea: Or I could have you to make two wheels.

Wow Gino! Not only do your bows look awesome, the work you put into them is increadable! I'm sure there are alot of guys that can do the machining that you do, but to do it with such atristic taste is what sets you apart. Your bows are fantistic! Mike
