Center Serving Replacement
How do you do this with a jig without the jig getting stopped by the rigging. Can you get it tight enough without a jig. it seems awfully congested in and around the area to be served with cable guards, cables, etc.
Also is BCY 62XS a good material to use?
lancaster sells a string separator which will solve that clearance problem
Get a good serving tool. String strand count, serving dia, and tension will give you the serving dia when done. If your nocks fit now, measure above your loop so you know the target size. Angel Majesty .018 is on mine.
Let someone who know what they are doing do it for you. If you serve too tight you will get string twist and too loose it will separate. Good use of ten bucks IMO.
Bou. Easy, like your replies to most posts….. lmao.
Just take a dowel about 4”-5” or longer and cut a notch in it. Place it so that it pushes your bow string up and away from your cables etc. Easy to replace your serving and wind the serving tool around the string. You’re welcome.
Yep X2 on the dowel with notches or any 1”x1” or 2”x1” piece of wood you’ve got if a dowel isn’t available. Lastly, the serving only needs to be wrapped a few inches along the string for a compound with a loop.
Bou, if its worn out probably better off getting a new string and or cables, I just replaced rattling junkies and noah's strings yesterday with new archeryshack strings, both bows were dead on to factory specs with the new strings and cables, excellent product, good price and fast shipping.
Make sure you check that string. Separate the strands to make sure none are broken. They tend to break or get smashed under the serving, a lot.
This "U" shaped gadget is a life saver if you're replacing center serving with the string still on the bow.
