Go to BCY or Brownell web site and do research all the information you are looking for is there. Then if you have a specific question come back and ask. Not trying to be mean but don't come here for all the answers do some research on your own. Even call either of them and get your answers from the people that know what they are talking about. They might just help with the cost. Basically use your best resources that is not AT.

What kind of string are you trying to make Flemish for a traditional bow? Compound strings and cables? If compound for what now and cam? Did you have then also sent you the book that explains how to build them? Is the serving you are wondering about end or center serving. Did you ask BCY this question?

With those bows you can get away with 3D for end serving
