    built a new strig jig

    i thought i would build a new more compact string jig this weekend.i may sell some of these if there is interest.cost would be $100 plus shipping this would be a 4 post with string stretcher .the buyer would need to purchase a piece of uni strut from a local electrical contractor supply or maybe home depo.
    here is a pic with the total unit set for a crossbow string

    this is the stretcher

    this pic is layed out with a 32 strand string and end served

    this pic is closing the end loops

    next is center serving

    and last is a 32 strand brownell b50 string for my excalibur.total cost of the string is about $8 or $9

    8.5"apart so when you make the string if you want 36" you seperate the flat bars by 26"(you gaine 1.5"because of the thickness of the flat bar the pins are fastened in

    Munch,
    I have access to a machine shop and really like the posts you have. Could you give dimensions on the ones on your jig? (height, dia., etc.)
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    I watched your videos, but is there any way that you can post some videos on a 2 color compound string? I know that the xbow string is the same I was just wanting to see a regular 2 color string made.
