I'm having a senior moment as my dad would say. Someone here showed me pictures of a simple draw board but I forgot who it was. I must have forgot to tag them for future use. Anyway, I could use a refresher.

Thanks!

I have pics I can post once I get home this evening. Simple basic DB. Used 2 1"X6" oak boards glued and screwed together, 1/2"x6" steel pipe, floor flange for the pipe, a strap winch and a 3' magnetic ruler (glued to board).

Thanks. It sounds a lot like the one I saw before.

This is about as simple as it gets (2x6, $7; 8" bolt, $0.35; boat wench, $20; turnbuckle, $1.99. Being able to DIY; priceless!):

I haven't welded anything in over 30 years Hutch. I only had a high school shop session on it so I was never any good or proficient at it. Maybe I need to take a class at the vo-tech and fill that square again.

Thanks for the links.

Spiker, where are those pictures? :cool:

I remember the draw board I saw on here used rope and pulleys, no winch. Anyone remember who's that was? I remember now it was Mudpig.

I noticed the ace bandage around the bolt. I assume that is to protect your bow's grip. Doesn't this make it hard to take a measurement and get an accurate draw length?

I went to Lose's and Home Depot last night and got a few things. All I could find for a winch is a a ratcheting pulley (or hoist) like Mudpig used and it only cost $10. I found the boat style winches but only 1100 pounders and up and didn't want to spend $80-$100 for one. How long of board are you guys using, about 6 foot?

Put a heavy duty hook in the rafter or in the wall. Draw the bow down equally and check cam timing. Finish set up and shoot the bow. Build the draw board later.:p

Hutch:cool:

I used a similar setup to check the draw weight, then tried watching the cams. I didn't like it, it was too jumpy. I want a nice steady, easily repeatable way of doing it. And since you won't send me your Super Shooter for free I have to build something. :cool:

I may still end up with a crank winch in the future but I will use this for now. The nice thing about what I bought is it can be used for hoisting up a deer during hunting season! :p

I would sent you the super shooter but you would have the bow done in minutes. Then we wouldn't have anyone to pick on.:p

I'm absolutely positive you will find something else to pick on me about. :cool:

When should I expect the Super Shooter be delivered? :cool:

C'mon MLN, you don't want to send your bow to punk~n~Son for a cheap $90 tune-up?:p:p

It should actually read send my bow to Hutch~N~ Punk if you want to get technical. :cool::p:o

If I can't finger it out I might just have too! Give me time, I'm a slow learner. :p

I don't know MLN The Punk is pretty good at tuning a bow. The last couple of bows he did the 40yard shot was dead on. And it didn't take but a few minutes and the guys were bulls-eying.

Ya, the ace bandage works pretty well; the bolt is threaded. I put a small mark up on the arrow shelf to mark the valley of the grip, so its easy to work around. This was my first go at it. Once I get out of the apartment I'll set up a nice corner in a garage or shed or something and make it more permanent. I'm learning to weld from a friend, so I may have to work up something similar to Hutch's ;)

Learning to weld is pretty easy now that we have mig, tig, etc etc.. But when you are ready pm me and I will send you some plans. I have over 300 plans out all over the world. It is a simple design. And can be made out of any metal. One guy made it out of copper and bolted it together. Here is a pic
30543055

He got the copper free. So why not build it with that. My Shooter only cost about $60. dollars. And was well worth it for tuning arrows, timing, fixing noises, dw, dl, etc etc.

That copper looks great. I think I'll make one out of PVC this weekend. :p

If you did it in copper then Galvanized pipe would be doable.

I used emt thin tube out of the electrical dept in home depot. The whole thing can be made from scrap metal of the dump. Use you minds and look around the house.
