    I see...yeah, I have r14 from the '90's and though it is very powerful, it's not as easy to use as the newer revisions. I'll keep working on the taper though; maybe I can come up with something.

    Yeah, I happened to think thought of that last night, so I'm just gonna go find some shops and the tech college today and talk to them and ask question etc. I was starting to get caught up in the design part of it to much but I have to realize it's going to have to be simple enough for them convert to a g-code without to much trouble.

    Actually, having it step down wouldn't bee too bad. I know that stan has steps on there's instead of a taper. And if you think about it, your individual fingers don't taper as you go from one end of it to the other looking at it form a horizontal plane. I'm not much of a machinist, I'm actually not one at all. Haha. But if it is easier to have it step, and you can make it look nice I would try it.

    So it's cheaper to buy limbs, riser, and strings and put one together than it is to buy one new? Of course you wouldn't get warranty, but if one can put the bow together themself, there's no sense in having a warranty really. That's cool...let us know how much you save it you don't mind posting it up.

    Called my 2nd cousin's/best friend's dad today who happens to be an engineer and has a nice shop...tomorrow I'm gonna drop the plans off and we're gonna talk prices so cross your fingers guys...hopefully it won't cost to much. If so, I'll check at the tech college and see what they'll do it for.

    Thanks for the support underdog (can't think of your name right now?)! That's what I was thinking too...it'll most likely be cheaper to machine and a heck of a lot easier to draw up.

    What's the problem with your 200s?

    Here's a rough drawing...it might not be exact per your description, but I got kinda lost in all the widths and thicknesses, lol. But here's what I got; let me know what to change and all. I don't yet have any of the neck drawn up because I'm working on something different for that (think adjustable)...anyways, more details to come regarding that.

    Let me know if the finger placement drops to much or not...I tried to make it relatively straight but I thought I remembered you sayin something about wanting just a slight drop and one time? Anyways, the third finger just drops 1/8" relative to the center points of the 1st and 2nd fingers which are inline with each other. But that can be changed to perfectly straight if you'd like.
