I just finished setting up my Girl Cave (oh yeah, we’re supposed to prefer wells....). Anyway, don’t forget to add a fletcher, a good overhead lighting system, a magnifying light if you have 40+ year-old eyes, draw board (still have to make that one), and a copy of Easton’s tuning guide. Good luck and have fun creating your space!!

Any one know where I can download this? I used to have it and it is a great tool to have handy.
Thanks

digital scale for draw weight
paper tuner (pvc and parchment paper work well)
laptop or tv/dvd player to watch your tuning videos
dial caliper if you're setting up a target scope scales
small shop-vac if you use an arrow saw (you do not want to inhale the carbon dust!)

Oh yeah, a backstop if you shoot in your mancave. Lord knows "stuff" happens when you're shooting indoors. Long live the "man cave"...:darkbeer:

"8 square ft"? I hope you meant 80 square feet! Because 8 sq. ft. is less than 3'x3'. I have half of a 26' x 26' garage and I'm crowded.

If you must have a pair of D-loop pliers I'll sell you mine for $10 TYD.

- Center serving material and serving tool.
- Extra fiber for sights in a variety of sizes.
- Long handled hex wrench or socket wrench for turning limb bolts.
- Lithium grease.
- A good set of allen wrenches. Mostly smaller and long. There seems to be a ton of small hex screws and set screws on a bow, release and sights.
- Arrow fletcher. Bitzenberger straight clamp.
- Vanes and fletching glue. I use brush on rubberized super glues.
- G5 ASD. You MUST have arrow that are square at both ends.

You got to up grade before you even start.......you got to have room for a fridge, easy-boy, and a TV in order to call it a proper mancave.:cool::darkbeer:

Man up, put your foot down and demand a 8x8 mancave!!:tongue:

Kavo,
I actually saw a pretty decent compact workstation on another thread that would probably fit your space well. Space belongs to Craigthor and the link was Draw board parts. Let's see if I can get this picture to transfer over....
