I'm new to web sight.  I have a quick question about WARF bows.  I have a HOYT Raider and was going to track down a set of plates for it.  My question is do I leave the small black rockers that were on the limbs in the pockets and rest the plates on them after having remove the small limb alignment nibs?  Or do I just put the plates on with out the rockers?

You have a message. Look up Warf51 here, he last posted in the ILF forum. He knows Warf’s, take my word for it.

Freezing,

If your Hoyt is a TD3 riser you can use Pete Wards method. Google "Pete Ward resurecting the TD3" and you should find his page. I converted mine using his method and parts from Lancaster. I left the rocker in place but modified it to accept the adapters. Precision machined plates may be a better way if you are particular but this is a viable method for the home DIYer. Mine turned out just fine with short Galaxy limbs. BTW if you remove the riser handle there should be a serial # under it. If it is a TD3 it will have it in the number. Good luck!

Sorry for the late response.  I joined this sight when at work and left the new password in my office.  And there was no way I was going back to get it (Saturdays are my Fridays).  I don't think I have a TD3 riser.  My handle doesn't come off.  My riser like the one below but with a different camo style.

So yesterday I used a dremel with a chainsaw sharpening bit and ground the back of the pocket out slightly to put in an old set of Sage limbs I had.  The pockets were about a 16th or so to shallow to let the sage limbs ling up with the limb bolts. Everything seems okay.  I have to make a new string for it this afternoon.

I was going to say that looked like a candidate for a set of Sage limbs. Incidentally, I did not know this myself until recently that if it is ILF converted it is termed a Warf bow but if it has bolt on limbs it is termed a Frankenbow. Who knew? 
Either way you will have fun with it.

I don't actually WARF bows any more. I simply use bolt on limbs. Even when using high end ILF limbs, I remove the ILF fittings from them so that I can use them as bolt on limbs. I decided that as cool as the ide sounds, the tiller adjustment that ILF allows just isn't something that I need.

That's an interesting statement fdp, and is actually what I was thinking for a long time: ILF is just a way to attach limbs to a riser and nothing else. Nobody is changing the tiller during an event anyway and the old risers have a positive tiller built in that will serve most shooters - at least my BB and Proline with bolts down the same have a 1/8"~1/4" positive tiller. Once set is there and I can forget about it.

Draven, I think there are several things that people obsess over in archery that don't really matter.

So far all has gone well on the hoyt.  I mounted the riser on my bench vise and used a flush cut bit on a trim router with a piece of steel as a guide.  only needed to shave a few 32nds off the back of the pocket to allow my to bolt on samick sage limbs.  Looks great so far.  I will post pics when our aftershocks stop(Alaska).
