    Default Bow Press Plans

    I think it is time with three bows to build my own press. I am tired of taking it to the shop just to get worked on.

    Anyone have plans for a good press that can be built and will work for Elite Bows.

    Thanks,

    I use a modified version of the press described here:

    http://www.skinnymoose.com/mostlyarc...-25-bow-press/

    Mine has pipe clamps on either side to allow for more travel. It does a fine job for taking strings and cables on/off. A little more difficult to swap limbs out but it can be done.

    If you have any welding skills (or a buddy who does) it's not hard to build a linear press out of a trailer jack. Cost you about $75 in parts. Pretty easy to find plans... email me if you need more info, can send pics of my buddy's.

    What did this press end up costing you to build?

    I have a set of 'coat hangers' for sale if anyone is interested in building a linear press. PM me for details.
