Part 3 - Tail Piece and Explanation -

This is a slightly more complicated yet still simple string jig I have been using for a while. It's fairly similar to many commercial endless or continuous string jigs. This particular design is one that has been on the internet for a while. It's not my invention, but I figured I'd share how to put it together.

This jig makes putting together an endless bowstring much easier and can make your finished product more consistent, especially if you are new to building strings. While this jig has only one pivot arm, a second can be added in place of the tailpiece.

Strut channel (Super Strut) however long you want. 4-6 feet is a good range.
2x4, 18 inches long for pivot arm
2x4, 12 inches long for tailpiece
3/4" dowel, cut into 3, 6 inch pieces
1/2" bolt, 3 inches long.
1/2" washer
1/2" lock washer
1/2" hex or wingnut
3 #10 wood screws with partial thread, 2 inches long
3 #6 wood screws, 1-1/4 inches long
2 pieces of 1/2 an inch thick plywood or hardwood (steel plate would work as well and can be thinner) cut to 1-3/8 inches wide and 6 inches long.

You will need a drill, drill bits in 1/8", 1/2" and 3/4" sizes, a screwdriver, thread for wrapping and something for measuring and drawing straight lines.

Thanks for watching and enjoy!
