Re: No one with half a brain would vote Greens would they ?

Politics is such a dirty game that it's always been my opinion that any one who really wants to get into it should under no circumstance be allowed to have power

Re: What I've been up to

However like Jeff I keep my belly lams a constant (mainly to make it easier to form to the riser shape) and adjust my stack with the other core lams. Have been thinking of the same thing recently to as you say make it easier to form to the riser shape and from the bows I've done that were all paral...

Re: What I've been up to

Jeff Yes , your reading of it is correct Steve Thickness at mid point on the lam stacks was all the same or at least with in .002" all up, after glue up this had changed to .003 " all up variation , possibly because of some very slight difference in the amount of epoxy , my thoughts were that a .003...

Re: What I've been up to

Jeff I use Black glass and I figure that with .050" glass a difference of .002" + or - would be pretty normal but for those particular laminations one was .052" and the other .055" , Didn't think to check thickness on the glass from the 4 bows in question , but they did vary by 9# from the lightest ...

Re: What I've been up to

Jeff

Hadn't thought about the glass , did measure the glass for the last bow I built and there was .003" difference between the two pieces , in your opinion what difference could that make to finished bow weight ?

Re: What I've been up to

Thanks

I use one taper on the belly , .002" per inch , the rest of my laminations are parallels so while the thickness of the taper may change the rate of taper doesn't

Re: What I've been up to

What I've been up to

Well over the last few weeks I've been busy , I started off building a 54 # bow that turned out at 64# , think that was more to do with the number of laminations of Tulip wood I was using , but the up side of it was a mate turned up a few days later had a look and said great I'll have that and bough...
