Bowpress Bench Height
Just bit the bullet and ordered an EZ Green Bowpress from LCA.
It should be here in a few days. In the meantime, I want to build a bench to mount it on as I think my garage workbench will be too high. Plus that's for other projects. I want a dedicated archery bench.
What's a good height for working on a bow in a bowpress?
I use a friends "archery shop" he has in his basement. After a few remodels he has it built on to a stand and is freestanding so that you can be on either side of the bow. It a lot more user friendly because you can easily get to either side. I'd say the fingers of press are slightly below chest height and it works well. He also has a draw board build into stand.
32" if you're short. 36" if you're tall. I will second the free-standing so you can access both sides plan.
Please include some pics here fellas. John, any pics of this free standing bench/press, please?
I use a rolling tool box. Perfect height.
I bought a gorilla type rack from home depot and mounted it on a half section.
I had him send me a pic. Said top of fingers are 48”” and it pretty ideal we are both about 6’. You can also see the draw board on off side.
Thanks for the pics fellas!
Just moved the press to a cart, I liked John’s idea of accessing both sides.
