Watch: Making a Solid-Steel Bow From an Old Leaf Spring
Russ Chastain 10.31.17
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, someone decides to use a lifetime supply of cutoff wheels to craft a compound bow from an old steel vehicle spring.
I didn’t get very far into the vid before I had to mute the sound, those tools get annoying.
It really didn’t take all that much work, and of course I was kidding about how many cutoff wheels it takes, and in the end he’s got a heck of a bow. Definitely a lot better than what you could whittle out of a tree limb!
Recycling the hardware off an ancient compound bow was a good idea…
