    My daughter and I were shooting with another club member yesterday... We see and shoot with Him and his wife often. If your recurve is not acting right,, well then Robert (Bob) can see it. He will tell you if one limb is not right with the other. And all kinds of other pointers I get from...

    I guess I won't be shooting for a few days I was cutting the heads off of some screws with a hacksaw today. The saw jumped off the screw head but didn't miss my thumb. Cut to the knuckle bone and nicked the tendon. The picture was taken just before the inevitable lidocaine shot in the middle...

    ... the nock is ebony as is the "butt". The fletchings are Swan. It's 30inches from butt to nock. The butt is 1inch in diameter the shaft at the fletchings is 1/2 inch diameter. Made sometime around 1900/1910 by Belgian bowyer Arthur Dubery. Any guesses as to weight and spine?
