I built my own home made Parallel Limb bow press

This presses bows measuring from 22" to 44" limb tip to limb tip.

It will relax the limbs completely for bows up to 38” A2A for complete takedown.

I have done complete disassembly of X-Force bows with this press.

I have pressed bows as short as X-Force Super Short 26 5/8" A2A.

I pressed my Mathews Z-7 on this press.

I have pressed but not done complete take down of bows up to 42” A2A on this press.

I have been using this for about 2 years now.

It is made primarily from a square-tube trailer jack.

Items needed include:
* Jack - $30 at Harbor Freight Tools (I got on sale for $10)
* Workbench - $20 at Harbor Freight Tools (I got on sale for $14)
* Two Drill Press Vises - $13 each at Harbor Freight Tools (I got on sale for $20 for pair)
* 5 feet of 2" Square Tube - $20
* 4 bars ½" X 2" X 9" aluminum - $30
* Can of Paint - $5
* Miscellaneous nuts & bolts and angle brackets - $5
* Machine shop to cut square tube, weld to jack, and shape aluminum bars into fingers - $50

My total cost - $154.00

Satisfaction of doing it myself - priceless

It works very nearly the same as the $700 EZ-PRESS.

The arms measure:
* Legs Below 8" for crank handle clearance.
* Legs above are 10" for bow clearance with fingers added.
* Finger tips end up 13 ½" above.

Now go and do Likewise.

Best wishes.
