I love how fast that stuff dries. Sprayed it and it wasn't long before I was out shooting.

Good looking! It gets much harder after a day or three.

These were semi tubes. I think they really did have quite a few miles on them. As I was slicing them I could tell there were thick and thin spots. I'm not gonna complain though. Free tubes are getting harder to come by. Most tires these days are tubeless.

Nice looking sticks carp.

I think I'm really gonna like the VHT as well. When I used it the first time, either the building was too cold, or I laid it on too thick. It didn't lay quite as flat as I'd like.

Haven't used tubes yet, but I get through so many mountain bike tubes I doubt I'll ever have to worry when I finally do a glass bow form. There has to be half a dozen dead tubes around the place.

Not exactly free, but at least they are not going to landfill yet.

Got my first self bow down to what now looks like a bow. The overall length right now is72 inches. My question is do I need to cut it to make a shorter bow or should I keep all that I have.

BTW I am having a blast with this project. It may turn out to be a bust but that's how a man learns

Made a new string and sanded off an edge that I had missed on the tip that caused it. Getting old I guess.

Iv never been Very good at math. Bow came out 98 lbs at 28 inches. Big thanks to Krasus for helping sting it. I would try shooting it but im worried it is less a bow and more like a fibber glass wood bomb. but these are the joys of working out a new jig. Im trying to run the fibber glass through the middle of the bow.

Looks like it almost broke your scale.
