Bow Press Plans?

6 posts in this topic

Bought a starter bow, Matthews Genesis, for my son and wife to learn with.

Already, I need a bow press. Does anyone have suggestions or plans that I can build my own press? The Genesis is not a powerful bow but I don't need to gerry-rig something that wrecks the bow or injures me.

All I want to do is string "Finger Savers" on it and I don't want to drive an hour to get back to Wilderness Archery if I can DIY.

Thanks.

Thanks, DR and Ornery. That's exactly what I was hoping for. Since I can't weld, a wooden one is doable for me.

If you google it and spend some time searching online you'll find some pretty neat ideas. i've been wanting to build one as well but have too much on my plate right now.

if you do build one, post some pics so we can see what you came up with. that'd be cool.

good luck!
