Looks like you pretty much made it to fit your bow. Only one place to squeeze it?!? Oh yea, I see the hinges on bottom now. Thanks for the idea.
Yah, made for just this bow, but minor changes ought to accomodate about any bow. Might press a Ravin but I don't know.Looks like you pretty much made it to fit your bow. Only one place to squeeze it?!? Oh yea, I see the hinges on bottom now. Thanks for the idea.
Can be opened 180°, but I only open it as needed.Maybe a closeup of the bottom of your press? Curious where you have the thin pieces of plywood attached. Also, how wide do you open it to put the bow inside the press? Thanks.
I don't have any vid equipment; wouldn't know how to use it or how to post it.I also am super curious, anyway of doing a quick video on the use of it
Nope, no duct tape on it.......yet.Your a genius Cal.... even Red Green would be proud of that press....
Nice! How much thread travel do you have?Here's mine. It works for bows or crossbows. Just slide the one clamp up or down the pipe as needed to fit whatever you're working on. My clamp on the right was upside down when I snapped the photos, but you get the point. I used leather to pad the jaws.

I'd have to measure it, but I'm guessing 3" to 4". That's been all I needed to change strings and/or cables on several bows and crossbows so far. I wouldn't want to rely on it for daily work in a bow shop, but it works for my uses.Nice! How much thread travel do you have?
