More crossbow work

Postby 44man » 06 Jul 2017, 06:49

Long ago I was given a crossbow stock, Barnett supreme but John did not know where the limbs were. I gave it to Joe and he tried to make hickory limbs but they broke. he found a used limb cheap, fiberglass. I made a string for it but how to string the bow? 150#. Joe got an idea, ratchet strap. Mine has coated hooks and I put them on the ends of the limbs, strap around the butt. It was pulling one limb more so we put slippery paper under the butt.
Worked like a charm, ratchet until the string went on.
Now he needs to make a stirrup because we can't cock the thing! zcon
