I wish they would have given better instruction with their sight. I have the old style ANTS. I am still learn things about it. I just found out that the spherical nut and washer has a purpose. How is the best way to make this adjust this adjustment?

The 3rd axis on this sight is a bugger sometimes. Man, this is going to be hard to explain. The round bushing (? Teminology) allows you to move your scope front/back, up/down to level ( which should be done on the frame 1st ), and rotate your scope. (lame explanation). I thinks the third axis is most important if you're shooting a thru the lens fiber optic as it allow you to see only a dot for the entire length of the fiber optic. If you are shooting an up pin, level the frame, adjust 3rd axis so pin faces you square, then zero the scopes level with the bow. A blurry description I know, but I tried! She really is a stellar performer though! :) :o

This is the best idea I could come up with. I am using a machinist level which is accurate to about 1/2 degree. If I could have determined how to have done it, I would have been mounted thee sight on the bow under full draw and this would have corrected for any twisting of the riser. But, not have the means I did this. It did reveal that the 3rd axis was off.

First, I clamped the sight to the edge of a table and then I took a reading with the level from the back of the extension bar. (see pic1)

Second, I took a reading on the back of the scope perpendicular to the extension bar and made adjustments to the 3rd axis until it matched the first. (see pic2)

Third, I took a reading on the edge of the extension bar. (see pic3)

Forth, I took a reading on the scope perpendicular to the third reading with the sight indicator set at 16 yards and the adjusted the tilt of the scope to match the third reading. (see pic4)

I found with the third axis screw snug, this was very easily done and check these readings a couple of times while I was going through the securing process.

Once the weather permits, I am going to go out and shoot some vertical lines on up and down hill targets to see if this axis is set properly.

That means that my web site is still out there in cyberspace. It started with my web site down and now it had grown to my whole computer drive. The only way I am communicating is by putting an old drive back in my computer.

It is kind of like a bad steak. The more you chew the bigger the bite gets! :D

Then I am getting all these responses on the 4th axis post and can't answer them as fast as I would like.

Oh well, I guess it will all come around sooner or later. The bad news is that my drawings for the 4th axis are on my other drive and I can't access them.

Woe is me!

I think I will curl up with a half rack myself. :o
