OK that's what I want. I want a repair manual, not an owners manual. I want a book that's going to show me how completely dissassemble, reassemble and tune my bow. There are 5 Martins in my house between me, the wife, and my boys. I cannot wait for a shop to open to have my stuff looked at I wanna learn to do it myself. Even if I have to buy all the tools to do it. So does anyone have any suggestions for me?

There are books and videos, http://www.lancasterarchery.com/shop/default.php?cPath=47_214&osCsid=2c93538ddd67c4189b9eba62661025fd
And there are forums like this and ArcheryTalk, http://www.archerytalk.com .

The owners manual covers a lot of it. Such as changing your draw length and timing the cams. They also have a section on bow tuning.

The tools you need depend on what you want to spend.

Tools I regularly use are,
Allen wrench set
bow scale
arrow scale
BowMaster Press
GKF center shot tool
fletching jig
chronograph (but only because I got it for free)
serving jig
string jig
a few pliers I've modified to do what I wanted

Thanks, I am planning on buying a press, I want to be able to do pretty much anything to my bows. I will be buying those 2 apple videos from Lancaster's. I am reletively new to the sport, ( 2nd year ) I just want to be able to take care of everything myself without relying on a proshop. Every bit of info is greatly appreciated! Thanks Again.
