Sorry for no update. As Pearly said I epoxied both billets into the sleeve. I think the problem started when the brass sleeves were hard to remove from the metal sleeve and I think I torqued the top sleeve trying to seperate the top limb. I actually had to put the bow in my vice to remove the top limb. I should have waxed the brass at the beginning and I believe I probably would have avoided the issue all together. I tried to tighten the fit by gently squeezing the metal sleeve in the vice and that just made the problem worse. The top limb was definitely looser after my reshaping attempt. At that point I figured it best to epoxy the sleeves and make a 1 piece bow. I consider it all a learning process. I still need to finish the bow but it is much quieter and shoots great. Here's a full draw pic.
