Ain't this a pretty limb tip?

 -


Now, note the spot where the veneer pulled from the glass....

 -

And here's why...

A friend of a friend of a..well, it was me, was cutting back on glue from what I usually put on.
The bow is a TD an I kept hearing it tick when we were shooting it before finish was applied. Figured it was just the pin or bolt, but bro laid it in his truck and she went off as he turned to shut the back door...

 -

My point? If it's workin, don't change it! Thought I had too much squeeze out, but I'd rather waste a little as have this. These limbs are wasted now.

I think the core lams came apart from tip til they tore a lam, then folded and popped the veneer loose on belly.

Lesson learned, new limb in oven now and another in morning. [Roll Eyes]

Stay sharp, Kenny.

I don't think making a new set is really "correcting"!
Sounds more like replacing.

I'm just glad ya weren't at full draw when she turned loose.
That's why I been drawing them about a dozen times on the tree before I shoot them in hand.

Yup, have her back together soon . I also didn't heat those limbs so this time I mixed 2/1 , used more glue, and heated it !

Yep, still have some! Gonna glue up #2 limb(or is that #6 for the twins) in a few !

In my excitement yesterday I mixed the glue and found I hadn't made the wedges! [Eek!]

No prob tho, whipped out a set of wedges and glued the limb up! [Smile]

That sucks. And sometimes there is not a reason you can figure out.If you know though you correct it and move along. Still be gun shy for a while.
