Very Good looking string. How long did it take you. Do you have to have special equipment to make strings. Is it alot cheaper then buying a premade string. Think thats very cool.

Building this is a lot different then the single or two color. But is was fun and I learned a lot more than I thought.
Thanks Hutch

I have all the equipment and build strings to sell. But I like to test my skills every now and then. The time it took to build the string depends how long I stretch it.
I like to leave them over night to get the best stretch possible. It takes about a hour a string.

Thats not long at all. Is that with serving it.

Everything but center serving and peep. With the way the strings are going they don't have the idler cam serving any more so it saves a lot of time. Also I am set up to serve by hand or by machine which ever preferred. To me they seem the same only because I can go at the speed I want with my machine.

Much nicer. Now I 'm thinking 4 color would be even more nice too. :D
