One time build of a BB to ILF with minimum tools, no mill out of 1/8th 6061.
Posting over on FB Warfbow Mod 2.0 but can do a few illustrated on youtube if anyone is interested in rolling their own?
Gonna drill in the top radius with a 7/16's drill.
Hand cut the plates from 6061 and JBem in.
Let me know if you would like some video here?
Plates are available but I do not like the way they push the limbs up out of the Riser, prefer the old way.

Im always interested to see what you are doing - but I dont do facebook

Adapting a bow to ILF becomes much simpler if you are willing to accept shims.

If you have this and some basic skills.
1/8th thick aluminum (get 6061 grade).
A hand drill
A 7/16's drill 5/16's drill
Course flat file (Mill file)
A cheap set of calipers
A Hack Saw with a course blade
A course round file
A dremel tool with a metal burr tool
Some slow cure JB weld
And patience/like projects?
You can do all of you're own conversions and save money Annnddd

Did you know; That the BB riser limb bolt has an insert in the Riser thread? Yes, and a 3/8's heli coil is easy to install.
A 3/8's hex head LB with a 0.371 shoulder eliminates the need for a LB bushing. Hoyt Game Masters have the same bolt.

; How many have one of these Risers?
1.Rambo
2.Spectra
3.Pro Vantage

If you do, look in the pocket floor for a round index mark cast into it.
That round index mark makes it compatible to use Earl Hoyts Sky Recurve limbs and yes, you can locate a duplicate pin on a Sage or Galaxy limb and replicate the original intent of Sky limbs right into a set of replacement limbs.👍

Did you know that?

Welcome to Worf Bow 💥💥💥💥Bam!

Happy fathers day🙏🙏🙏

You know what🤪Many do not own a set of dial calipers so we will start the DIY ILF build with minimul hand tools.
Go buy a 5/16's and 7/16's drill bits (a bit is actually for wood and a drill is proper for steel) so you have them on hand.
An ice pick and a straight edge.
Do you have a wood chisel and no Dremel tool?
We can make a wood chisel replace the Dremel, just get it almost broadhead sharp.
We are gonna use a tape measure and break thousands into 16's✅
