I got tired of the old jig. I like to put 325 to 350lbs of tension on the string so there will be no peep rotation. The old jigs beam was to weak. So I went out and brought home all the materials to build a better one. It cost a few bucks but it will be worth it. So I have been welding and working on it. Hopefully by mid week we will start breaking it in.
I already have a customer waiting to have a string built. So I will let you guys know when I am up and running again.

Building a new string jig?

Hadn't realised til recently you were a string maker Hutch. From now on you've got my business. BTW, do you make flemish strings for traditional bows?

I don't as of now. I have a friend that does. And he is top notch. Right now he is getting rehab on a leg from a job accident. But when I am up to it I will probably learn from him.

Don't know why. But a lot of people change their stock string because they don't like manufactured strings. I might not you might not but hundreds do.

No problem, but to shuck Hammerhead strings before giving them a try just slays me. As for extra money, well before I retired I probably paid more in taxes per year than a lot people earn in a year today and I plain wouldn't buy strings unless I had a problem.

27?!!!! Lord! Well, when 35 I was called a pup. Between 35 and 55 I was sort of in between stages, I guess. Once in the Senior division was called just old. Then somewhere between then and now, 62, I acquired Old Man stage. Now according to Carlso 68 is Old Geezer class.

But preception comes in. At first I thought they were talking about moisture, rain, but preception at this stage is just how old you feel, I guess. My motorcycle, bronc stomped body sort of doesn't want to get going after a good night sleep or is it broke and repaired parts take longer to wake up? I think I've slowed down a bit. Used to be I'd kick King Kong's and Godzilla's butts twice each on Sunday morning. Now I take on one or the other on Saturday and the other on Sunday. :(

I'm sure that new powder coating shop would do a lot of work in Oregon, they've got a smaller Rocky Mountain elk herd than Colorado, but have Roosevlts on the coast. Also have 3 types of deer. And it's right down the road from Martin.:)

The PCing is only a part of my business.

And the Elk - - - - lot's here, also lots of people after them.
Whats the archery success ratio there?

As always, its how hard you work at it. I think they're about 10%, not sure. Maybe Elkslayer will know, its listed in their reg book. Saw a lot of dead elk the first rifle season while ES and I scouted for the 2nd season. :)

The mower I've been using is a 4.5 horse Murray push style with a 22" cut, and it came from the dump. The mower is just about like new. After bringing it home from the dump, all it really needed was a blade replacement. Why people throw stuff like that away I don't know. I will be using a Ford LGT lawn tractor(18 horse Kohler engine, 42" cut) as soon as Dad and me can finish rebuilding it.:cool:

I will as soon as Dad gets the time.;) I'm not exactly an engine whiz. Right now I basically just have school and little things to do besides shooting and breaking arrows(Yeah, I broke another one).:D Of course when the string jig is done it's all over.:D
