Radius the back edges well before floor tiller. Normally its not critical but in this case I'd keep the odds in my favor.

That really looks good. How wide is it, how wide compared to your normal design, and are you going for your typical 50 pound draw?

Arvin, that is impressive.  I REALLY hope that it does what we hope it will do and you break yet another record.  I'm totally impressed with how you took an idea and turned it into a totally working prototype...congrats.   :OK

Thanks Bob . Weíll see. Tip overlays. Do you think I need to glue something across the back at the handle to keep side plate from splitting out if strung wrong? Just a hair to much side pressure.

I'm not sure I understand your question, but tip overlays are good for preventing the sting being able to slit growth rings.  I don't know about the handle area, but someone else might.  I always have a piece of leather on my side plates anyway, but I just use barge cement on them.  If I wanted them for protection, I guess I would make them fit the entire site window area and I would use epoxy to attach them...

Did you cut a dish into the back of the handle there?
