fun with old bows

Recommended Posts

This thread may not have a point, but fwiw here's an old combo bow I'm putting together for fun.  The nickel mounted frog came on a broken stick (missing head) that had a mostly illegible brand that MIGHT have ended in Dresden.  The design of the eye looks like that on a bow sold by Sears around 1908.   The stick was found without a frog.  It has old silver wrapping.  It needed a tip plate and I found one on a junker bow that fit ok.  The frog also fit this stick surprisingly well.  The stick needed some straightening (I used a hair dryer and my thigh for such).  I haven't finished rehairing it, but am hopeful that it will function ok.  Old cheapie bows are neat and educational (for me, anway).
