    I know this is a little late for helping but I've used Helicoils before in automotive applications and they worked very well. The main issue with elcid99's problem is the size he needed to repair, in...

    Novich, making your own bent cable guard rod isn't hard to do. If you have a bench vice and hacksaw (the 2 primary tools needed) you can make them using 3/8" aluminum rod from home improvement...

    Yep, sounds like another example of Martin Customer Service stepping up and making another customer happy. Glad to hear this is working the right direction for you.

    I'm not trying to sound snide but if they were to have kept the standard mods from my original CAT cams they replaced recently just for cases like this, they might be able to send your those. The...

    I can attest to the new company not having much more than empty buildings with little to no parts for older bows. I was very lucky to have had my 08 Firecat almost completely rebuilt the first of...

    To continue with my update here are a few more pics. I'm almost finished as about all I need to do now is serve the string where the new dual string stops contact the string and replace the moleskin...

    Sorry for taking so long to update this thread. With warmer weather and a long honey-do list I had to divert attention to things other than my bow. So, without further adieu, I want introduce my...

    Interesting that this topic comes up about the same time as I'm finishing up my recently rebuilt 08 Firecat (thanks to the new Martin company). I've had dual string stops before but got some...

    Here's a little more info since my last post. I tied my D-loop on and measured the draw weight as it came from Martin. It maxed out slightly above 73-lbs. I turned the limb bolts out a couple of full...

    My bow is back and appears to be in good shape! After getting the box in the house and opening it and seeing that it was in one piece and appeared to be in good shape overall, I called Martin Archery...

    Well, according to the FedEx tracking system my bow should arrive at home today. My wife will be there to receive it and will carefully open it to see if it made the trip in one piece ;>). I can't...

    Rest assured, Barry and everyone, I will definitely keep this thread updated as anything new happens. I hope by tonight the tracking number I got from John will be useful and able to provide some...

    Here's the latest. I received a call from John Nelson fairly early this morning. He said my bow arrived at Martin last Friday and after working on it, he was now getting ready to send it back to me...

    Very nice accomplishment. Those birds look like they really put on a show for you before you put the hammer down.

    You make some good points, Barry. The way I started into this was to get the shop where I bought the bow involved, figuring they already had reasonably good connections and rapport with the...

    I can only speak for myself, but having had the bow sent to Martin to get assembled and everything checked out, I presumed ALL aspects, including ATA, brace height, draw weight and draw length would...

    Yeah, I'm starting to have a brighter outlook on how this will turn out. I just completed a letter to John Nelson that will be in the shipping box, briefing him on all details of how this started and...

    So, here's the latest. On recommendation from Pat Finney, of Prairie Archery in Grangeville, Idaho, I called Martin this morning and left a message requesting John Nelson (customer service dept) call...

    You and Pat Finney (aka themiddleman) are on the same track; me to as well. Pat PM'd me with the same question and is quite certain the string and cables that Martin provided are too long. I concur....

    I wish I knew the answer to that question too. I don't recall any rough handling last fall while hunting or any other time but I guess it could have happened. Other than that I simply don't know why...

    Thanks for the compliment, AS. During my lifetime I've discovered that patience is definitely a virtue, especially when working through situations that aren't happening as one believes they should...

    Once again, thank you very much, Barry. I will definitely take your advice and remove all accessories if (hopefully when) the bow gets shipped for repairs. And thanks for suggesting Rich as a...

    OK, here's a new wrinkle I just learned from talking with the SW pro. He called and spoke with John (someone new to Martin and the customer service dept) and briefed him on the whole situation. After...

    Thanks for your ever so helpful advise, Barry. I'll be going to SW this afternoon after work to see what they've learned after talking with Martin. I'll also call SW before that to pass on your...

    Thanks for the advice, droppixel, on removing all accessories before sending it in. I'd truly hate to not get any one of these items back. I just created a text file listing all these parts so I can...
