The Mitchel abrasive tape came yesterday so I knocked the squared edge off the string slots and mounted the TT trigger back into the Dagger’s rail.

I had some adhesive backed foil so I laid a strip over the trigger bosses and rail in hopes it might keep the string from digging into the “notches” in front and back of the bosses - wrong!

The foil was too thin and the string’s down pressure on the rail from just cocking it ripped the foil off like a 3 day scab. I had thought about bending some thin brass stock over that area but I’m not sure how to keep it in place.

I don’t think filling those cavities with some fly tying head epoxy would stay in place either. Unless I think of something else, that string serving is going to continue diving into those notches and fray my serving. :confused:

(No, I’m not shimming the riser).

From what I can tell from the photos it looks like there are sharp edges at the top on each side of the notches. Or maybe a better way to say it is at the front and rear of each notch. Can those be rounded or smoothed with a dremmel or small file? I think you could get good access for doing this with the trigger box removed.

Or, going with your thin brass idea, if you made it the shape and size of your foil tape you could hold it in place with double side mounting tape. You have a lot of surface on the sides for adhesion and there are some really good products that should work.

Actually I’ve had the trigger box removed and disassembled so I could both both the inside edges of the string slots. The issue is with those notches on both sides of the housing bosses.

Here’s the video I finally got to work showing showing dragging a drill bit across that section the same diameter of the serving. And there’s a lot more down pressure from the string than what I did with the drill bit.

I think I’ll be stuck with reserving my string for as long as I have the Dagger.
