Hello, I wanted to ask those that have a Schulz Hill grip. I am taking my oval grip and having at it with the mouse, rasp, file etc. My question is on a wedge grip say 1 wide, by 4 long by 2 deep, can you dish, that style? What basic Size goes with doing the dish VS. non dished? I had a slight dish on the Grand-Pa John Schulz, sadly I do not have that to tear off the grip cover off and use mics, and dail calipers to lay out the pattern.  Thanks;Ravenwolf

I doubt that John Schulz or Craig Ekin use a micrometer or calipers to shape their handles.  They just eyeball it, generally dishing in the 1/8-inch or so range, and you can do the same.  After all, if you're taking a file to it, you're reworking it to fit you.  So just try it out as you go.  

As I'm sure you know, reworking the grip can reduce the resale value of the bow, particularly if it's not well done.  Good luck.

Thanks, I will make it, as I have some measurements from some members input to help go on. I will never sell my bows, been there done that. Ravenwolf

For what your doing, bastard file, no rasp. Cut from glass to wood, not visa versa.
