Bow press options
« on: May 08, 2021, 05:04:49 PM »
I've really been pondering buying a bow press lately. I really want to start working on my bows myself and start learning more about tunning and changing out simple items like peep sights. Any one have any recommendations on a bow press setup that won't entirely brake the bank? Curious to see what everyone else uses. Let me know, thanks in advance!

I built my own out of 2x4s and hinges and cable and a turnbuckle. Works ok. Watched a few utube videos for ideas. It works ok.

Sutherland, you donít need a press to do the things you mentioned. Get an inexpensive bow vice and your golden.

The main thing I'm looking to do now is just try some new peep sights out. I want to learn. How to do it my self instead of taking it to the local bow shop Everytime. They are slim pickings here in Wenatchee unfortunately.

I have this press. No complaints and easy to use. Takes up no room you can sit in the lazy boy with a drink watching the game and do bow maintenance on your lap.
God Bless,
Scott

Ez green press is all you need. Plus the draw board they sell that mounts onto it. Or you could make one.
