This was in issue 18 of Traditional Archery magazine.


The only thing I would add is a tip from Art Schampel. He said to fray the ends of each strand about 1 or 2 inches back with a knife or by pulling them across a hacksaw blade. This would ensure that there were no loose ends after twisting the loops.

Art was the business manager at Hugh Rich Archery. He was a pretty good bow maker also. He invented a string server that was marketed by Martin Archery as the Speed Spin String Server. Versions of this server are still being made. What he really excelled at was string making. He made all the Flemish strings for the shop. Note in this string he made in 1945 that there are no loose ends.

Interesting read.  Thanks.  Think there's a page or so missing though.  I generally make two-bundle strings, but may make a couple more three-bundle after reading this.

Very good article. Jim was a treasure. He had SO much knowledge and was always willing to share it.
