Doug, it's just a scrap piece of wood 6" long, what you do is run it along the belly of the bow length wise and check the gap in the middle of the walkie talkie. It helps you see flat spots as your tillering. The only trouble is keeping the bow drawn long enough to read the limbs. Not sure but I think Dean Torges came up with the idea, or passed it down.

Thanks guys.

David, I did what the experts said pretty much, and got the all the use out of the limbs I thought I could, and then I let the curves bend a tad.

Mickey, done shovlein snow yet? Dangit bud I just ordered some skins from Mike Yancey, thank you anyhow, some Brazos River skins, they sound nice I have never seen one, but I thought I'd take a chance. Timo is a fine member of mankind ain't he.

Dano,

You look taller than someone with a 24" draw in your avatar...must be the hat. [Wink]

You're bow's lookin' real nice. Where did you take off too much wood resulting in the 40lb draw?
Will your next recurve be static or dynamic and why?

Clint

Clint, good questions. First it ain't the hat. [Big Grin]
You don't need much wieght with a recurve, I read where you get 20% more speed from a curve, so I didn't worry too much about the wieght. I wouldn't mind builing a static, Statics are cool, and I want to try the kerf method of bending the curves, but it won't be soon.
