My plates are fine. It's the dremeling on the riser. I havent ruined it yet, but its been a deal. I took a break on it and im going back to try and finish this weekend. Also, my gamegetter II just arrived in case I ruin this lol.Don't give up if you mess up a plate. Do it again until you get it centered and acceptable.
Thanks! I might go the same route with a hacksaw, then. I don't like how the dremel bounces around and if I'm going to get used to it, I'd rather that was on a project I care about less haha. Thanks for the tips!I know what you mean. The dremel can get away from you. I didn't have trouble with depth but it will hack on the sides of the trough. Hard to keep steady. I used one a lot 20 years ago but it took a little while to get used to it. I didn't use it much on the other limb pocket. I made my cuts with the hack saw blade for the trough to 1/8 and then used the hack saw blade to cris cross in small cuts not as deep and used a screw driver to work them out and filed it flat. Takes longer but all I have is time any way, Just don't try to hurry it up.
Shot mine a little yesterday and today. Still working on brace height but shoots good . It is a little noisy but a different sound than my wood recurve which I expected. Pull weight is just a little to much for me but got in about 30 arrows each day. Will take a turn on the bolts and see if it will lighten the draw weight a little. Stay after it and take your time, it will work out.
Thanks for your interest.
Just a 1/8th material removal 5/8's wide and 3/4 long. If go too deep, JB a filler piece in there and clean up the end, paint it, Boom💥💥💥My plates are fine. It's the dremeling on the riser.
