Tiller Thoughts ? Design & any thing leaver bows !
« on: August 12, 2017, 06:05:45 am »
This is a stave I picked up from Clint about 1 1/2 years ago been ruffed & inside sense winter its 68 in. Lever bow I have it at 47 lb @27 right now Im heading to 29 1/2 @47lb any thoughts ? One fade is slightly more reflexed then the other started out with about 1 1/4 reflex & the bow is 1/8 positive in the pic ?

Looks good to me! With those lever bows I always start the bend directly from the fade to get a nice circular tiller and get as much working limb as possible.

Nice looking bow, Stick. That’s a good layout for Osage. It’s “real” close to being tiller. Just a few scrapes in the middle of the working sections of both limbs should bring it home. As Leon mentioned, you’re looking for a circular shape on the working sections, and you’ve done a good job so far. Good luck, H.

Looking pretty good to me. You could get the lower limb near the fade bending a bit more and coming into both fades at the levers.

Looks sweet to me, mind it looks like you could draw it back to your ear and shoot a warbow arrow  ;)
Oh, just re-read  :-[ and you are aiming for 29.5"  looks like she'll take it, can't wait for the FD pic :)

It's looking good.  It could use a few scrapes at the fades.
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left

Ok here it is slightly heavy for shoot in and sand not perfect but shoots sweet & hard even with probably 3oz left in the tips or better to come off it took some more fairly even set and the top limb was the slightly deflexed one and took a bit more set decided to do this one ala natural  instead of inducing reflex and it turned out about neutral ,cant wait to get the tips down and chrony built this one for shooting heavy hunting arrows & pulled to 29 1/2 im hopping for some decent speed all coments & critic welcome this only my 3 rd lever bow could have probably got the upper fade working a bit more but im at weight and its shooting great !

Nothing wrong with that! Looks really good. That will lauch those heavy arrows for sure, especially with your drawlength!

If I had to be critical I'd say your curtains could do with an inch off the bottom right ;)

Sweeeet!You nailed her pretty good!Some pretty good Indiana osage there too.Not counting the human manipulation factor which had a heck of a lot to do with the final outcome.A hunting weight arrow of 525 grains or better will fly just fine off that bow.
