Cleaning up my archery room and found this, the first book I can remember on tuning. Things were a little tougher before YouTube ??

Emery Loiselle, mid 70's. He was the tech editor for one of the archery mags if I remember correctly.

Emery lived near me and had a shop in his basement. I bought an MQ1 from him way back when. He was quite an guy...old school. He passed away a year or so ago and was in his late 90's. He was a good man and a wealth of archery knowledge.

I was a shop/lanes owner from 64 thru 1982. When compounds became the craze in the mid 70s I worked on em all. Tear drop, S hook cables & I had a metal pin/peg board for bending all the various cables for different compounds & the Round wheels of the day.. Oh how it's changed since I started in 1956.

That was a "must have" item back in the day! My copy was $6.95 and published in 1976. Forgot about all the "high tech" bow manufactures shown in it. Always enjoyed his bow test articles.
