What do you use for plugs/air valves?
I had them machined up from steel and a tyre valve fitted the one end.

Re: TAA Proposed Equipment Guidelines 2020

TAA- Timber Arrows Australia. Ha ha ha. If the overwhelming desire to have timber arrow only events is to preserve the craft of making timber arrows why is there no such desire to have self made bow only events so that the craft of making bows is preserved? After all, both are as important as each ...

Lay Flat irrigation hose works fine also. I have been using it for many years. It is available in different diameters also.

Re: TAA Proposed Equipment Guidelines 2020

I for one do not understand the drive to "define " the longbow or Recurve. IMO you can easily class these all as Traditional Style Longbow and Traditional Style recurve. We don't see the Compound shooters defining by the bow but by the way it is accessorised so why we continue the path of " My Defi...

Re: To Mix by Weight or Volume?

G'day Daryl, I mix my Smooth-On by weight. Back in 1993 in a Smooth-On Technical Bulletin they gave the mix ratio by volume of equal proportions of Part A & B but also by weight; Part A: 100 - Part B: 83. I have always just measured it by weight.

Re: TAA Proposed Equipment Guidelines 2020

I agree wholeheartedly; longbows are not known a American flat bows. I also had a chuckle at the first sentence; "Longbow refers to the traditional straight end style longbow." If a bow doesn't have straight ends than it isn't a longbow but at least no semi-recurves allowed. Also it appears that Eng...

Re: Building bows on an adjustable form.

That's an interesting build-a-long Daryl. Thanks for taking the time to share it with us as I'm sure it will help those looking to make such a bow.

Re: Bamboo Backed R-D Bow Questions.

Thanks Jeff. I know technically it is indeed a deflex reflex design but so few people call it that as saying it in reverse rolls off the tongue better. But yes deflex through the handle and reflex towards the tips. Few people use the term now days but it doesn't make it right and it just leads to c...

Sorry I can't help you with making your bow as I have no experience with making one of that type. Hopefully someone who has made a similar bow will reply.
