How To Make A Bow String - Continuous Loop Part 1




What do you think about this video?

DynamoUSA: Great video, use some of that string for a weed wacker LOL Thanks!

GrandOldPuba: I like how you have the other videos in this series up in the description. I wish everyone with multiple part videos would do that. Good job on the series. liked and subbed

Louis Ta: i made my own 10 pounds longbow with trial and error. first 2 fails were using 1/2 inch pvc pipe and cutting the nocks way too deep. and when i pull back they snap off. so i made an ingenious way to do it is by not cutting the nock too deep and only cut a v about 1/8" and the depth is only the end of the thickness that way it does not break.

Chris MacEnany: Hey Nick I really enjoy your channel. I have a question I made a re curve break down bow and it's about 47" long measuring by the method you showed and for the life of me I can't no way get the distance of my palm with my thumb up between the string and the bow grip. Your comments please. The true distance between string and bow is about 4 1/2". Is 1" schedule 40 too big for a break down bow or should I have used 3/4"? The bow looks great and is balanced and plenty strong. The problem is I don't think I have the strength to string it. But I finally did and tied plenty of knots in a paracord and strung it overnight. The previous measurements are the results of that.

Louis Ta: and the string is made of twine. though i don't have the proper string to use, it still works.

Charles Douglas Contreras: what kind of string or material are you using for making the string? and thanks for share your knowledge

Keli Tony: This looks really easy to make. Thanks for the vid

ethan storey: Please can you show us how to make a PVC server

Dale Erwin: FYI the best place I've found to buy beeswax is on amazon.com. I use a lot of it in my leather work.

Landon LoveL: You videos are great. I went right out and built two of these jigs. Then ordered all the supplies. I'm stoked! But I have a question. Noting the twist, How long do I make my string when I want the finished product to be 58"? Meaning, should I make it 59" then the twists take it down to the 58" I want? Maybe 58.5"? I guess I'm trying to ask how much shorter is the string once you twist it a normal amount? Thanks again for all you do. It's great!

Nathan Jennings: Will fishing line work for serving string? I made the actual string out of fishing line, and was wondering if I could use fishing line for the serving as well.

Γιάννης Χάλκος: Hey I was wondering what kind of thread are you using as a serving thread and what else can i use instead of bowstring?Cause i can't find one in Greece.Is a wax thread good enough?

nate anderson: Hey man, might I ask what you put for tags to allow the video to show up when I search for how to make a bowstring? Thanks.

afifzainurin: i have a question. is it necessary to maintain the force of strings every time we make it go around the nail?

edb strung: Would you happen to know common walk in stores that carry Dacron 50 string? I've looked high & low online to see for a local retail shop within 15 miles, but cannot locate anything. (I can't buy online).

CarlosMacMartin: Keep up the good work,Nick! Good way to spend your time! Cheers!

TheNinjutsu5: i love how you put a ink in the description for the other parts of this series in each of the parts, instead of leaving us to find them.

dougtheheavy: got a little experience with that myself. paracord make a good improvised string. but it seemed to be pretty slow. it also stretches making it very difficult to cut the string a fitting length. all in all, your much better off avoiding it.

TheDave570: you can use a toilet bowl ring......lots-a-wax....lasts a long time.....

mauserman67: Do you bowhunt with the bows that you make or are you a competiion shooter only? i would like to see a hunting video of you using one of your pipe bows to take a deer or hog to test the effectiveness of yuor bows,great videos and concept for on the cheap!

SumoNinja92: Do you have a tutorial on how to make that PVC String server? Would like the measurements if you don't have one up already.

BackyardBowyer: I said that funny. I meant that I like Flemish strings because they look nicer but they do shoot a little slower than continuous loop strings. The main reason for this is the extra weight of the string itself. Continuous loop strings are usually a little lighter. Flemish strings are also twisted, which causes the string to act like a spring. This robs the arrow of energy at the last moment, which can hurt speed as well. If you twist a continuous loop, the same thing happens.

iamdabestuploader: i cant open the "breaking strength to string amount " file, can someone tell me, what breaking strength does a string need to have for a 35-40 pound bow?

cetuspa: Makes sense, thanks.

venomblademedia: You rock man!
