String Serving Jig

Post by bigbowman » Sun Jul 29, 2018 3:58 pm

Thanks to Boo! I finally finished my string serving jig today! I followed Boo’s instructions step by step like he explained in his videos to reserve my crossbow string! I think it turned out awesome for my first attempt! I winged it to remove the old serving but did it without damaging the string strands! The best part that it cost me a few dollars to build! The only thing I had to buy was a turnbuckle to tighten the string up. The rest of the materials I had laying around the shops, barns and out buildings! Thank you very much Don for the videos and answering all my questions before!

Great job big bowman ,Made one myself a few years back :D
I don't shoot much so I don't do a lot of reserving, but when I take my string off at the end of the season I put it on my string on serving jig and crank er down good and tight to keep the stretch out of my string, and when I string my bow the next season it's ready to go. :thumbup:

The Boo Man is certaimly a very generous soul around here. Not only does he sell fine crafted strings but will teach you how to make them too.

There is a saying that goes "teach a man to fish so you don't have to fish for the man"

A quality trait the way I see it.

Well done BBM.

I have one very similar to that that I also built from scrap except for the metal tubing which I purchased at scrap price :)

Thanks guys! This is just as fun to me as shooting my bows! I figured that I build my own arrows, now it was time to start maintaining my servings! I'll find out today how well I did reserving this string when I install it and start shooting it?
