Bowfishing equipment build
« on: June 22, 2010, 11:44:35 PM »
Like normal, I have several projects going at once. We have been getting into Bowfishing here lately. I have a new Bow that I need to set up with a reel and a rest. The reel will be here later this week(fingers crossed) So I've been machining like a madman out in my shop. :proj: I made the nut and reel seat the last couple of evenings. I really like how the nut turned out!!!



I'll make the retaining ring thingies next.

A Gismo ??? If it has a flywheel or spins and is made with small parts. I'll take one! If it makes noise, moves, or requires frequent oiling and dusting it's a better deal yet. It's especially right if its shiny and bright; but if it's dirty and dull it wont mater at all...

Wes, very cool.  I love work like that.  It just screams "custom made" versus "mass produced." 

Cheers,

I'm getting closer. I managed to get the retaining sleeves machined. I had to make a spacer to move the reel forward. I'll start on the rods tomorrow.



Thanks for the compliments :mmr:
