These may have been a topic in the past.
But I am looking for plans for a bow press.
Plans to build one yourself?
Yes, But I want to be able to press my DXT or My Hoyt X7.
Here's a link...
and thanks Wes for the email.
Here's another...Go to the bottom of the page to download
Lots of info on presses over at AT...
just do a search..:biggrin1:
I am on AT too but it was a little bit of a hassle for me to search the post. So I thought I could just stop over here.
Is the xpress design the most common?
No the hydraulic jack one with the cable is...
do you dislike the guy or what:tape: :laugh:
I dont get it.
I was trying to help.
Well with looking over the information you guys have provided I think I will be building the xpress style. It just seems to be the most versatile.
Thanks for all the help. I will post pics when I get it done.
By the time you buy all the materials and go through the work of designing, drinking, machining, fabricating, welding, drinking and then putting it together wouldn't you be money ahead to just buy an X-press?? Not to mention all the beer you would go through.....:lol:
Good luck I hope I helped some. Take some pics for us when finished.
Well, sense I don't drink that is one cost that will drastically reduce the bottom line. And sense I have millions of dollars of equipment at my finger tips. They can do something other than just work on automotive and aerospace tooling. And I did not know that archery was a finacially rational sport. I have 1500-1800 invested in one bow, and you guys do to. Just to shoot a stick at a foam animal. Wow, thats rationally think. I personally deep down need the home made bow press that cost $800,mashed knuckles, endless hours trying to understand how to put it together, and wonder where the extra parts I made go, and who knows how much cost in damage to my bow when I try it out for the first time.
Dang it I am a MAN, and we shoot deer with $20 broadhead on a $12 shaft out of a $1200 bow, sitting in a $200 deer stand, with $400 worth cloths and bits and bobs to attract the deer. Field dress it with a $40 knife, toss it in the $30,000 truck, have it processed for $70. Drive home and lay maybe 40lbs of meat on the counter and tell the wife you saved her from going to the store and buying meat. :frusty: :frusty: :frusty: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon:
Dang right I am going to build it. Not going to let you guys down by buying one.
This is UNITED STATES OF AMERICAeace: eace:
I built my own press, it's similar to the xpress also. I didn't quite finish it, but it is functional. It has pressed several bows. I have never damaged anything with it.:biggrin1:
Nothing like building it yourself. eace:
Very well said if I may say so myself.... :rockon:
