      This was my father’s bow. He rarely used it and it is in decent shape however the glass coating has split on the upper limb. At one point, my father taped a metal sight to the limb and I think the stress it created when the bow was shot caused this to happen(I know, I know….this was a horrible idea. Does anyone know if this is fixable?

      There is a fellow who goes by Bowdoc that did a Bear Super Mag. for me one time. He does great work & he’d know. He hangs out at trad gang.com

      Frank, I believe that is Bow Doc’s page I linked up there.

      It could be. I know he does great work. The one he did for me is beautiful.

      The Bow Doc is Don Ward of Seattle. He has been fixing bows for a long time and does a great job. I have the Bow Hospital as a part of my Prairie Traditions business, and also do bow refinishing, weight reduction, and some repairs. I sent you a PM jjnapp.

      Joe thanks for clearing that up for me. My personal computer crashed, and with it my links. I have not been to the other board, as I’m using my wifes computer right now and its very frustrating.

      Again, thanks for clearing that up.

      If it was my bow I would simply glue the splinter with some thin loktite superglue followed by a refinish, or alternativly cover it with serving to hide the repair and keep it from opening more (make a similar servering on the other limb for looks).

      If its an irreplacable heirloom then contact a pro bowyer, if not the above should do it;-)

      Cheers
