Didn’t want to spend $200-500 on an endless loop jig so I decided to build one for about $15. works as it should.
It’s adjustable for different size strings.
Now I have to build a jig for Flemish twist type string.

Nice work. I’ve made a Flemish String jig from Daoheads plan. It works well. Need to make an endless loop now.

THX. How accurate is that Flemish jig as far as length? I prefer Flemish strings any way.

thx. yup i like to make a long bow from scratch but the prices on a raw bow stave are outrageous. not talking about osage or yew either just regular woods talking about greed. you can buy a ready made re-curve or take-down for less. so i guess I’ll never get to make one.
