I bought a new back-up bow for an up-coming trip. And of course neither of the presses that I use now will work on the PSE Bow Madness because of the past-parallel limb design.
So time to bite the broadhead and get to work on a press that will do all of them. I hate spending money on things that I can build for a fraction of the cost and I can often take advantage of cheap labour [mine] and incooperate improvements.
So here is the raw press. I'll use it a bit and make any adjustments/additions before I take it apart and paint it.
Because I'm a saver/scrounger, I have less than $65 into it so far. It's based on the EE-Z press which retails for about $500.
A few pieces gathered up.
The limb fingers and mounts
Main tube with bearing mount welded on.
The Acme threaded rod with a bearing seat welded and machined
The bearing on the Acme rod
And the Acme rod and bearing in the outside tube
