      A:

      I don't see why you couldn't. I would recommend using Tite-Bond III (Item # 5615). Basically, I would soak the skins in water, then place the Tite Bond glue on the bow making sure the whole surface is covered. Then place the skins on the bow and wrap it tight with an ace bandage. Let it completely dry and remove the ace bandage. Now you can trim the edges of the skin with a sharp razor blade. You still need to remove the scales. This can be done by wrapping tape around your hand with the sticky side out. Press on the skin and lift up. You should notice the scales sticking to the tape. Once all the scales have been removed, just add a sealer to finish.

      A:

      No, the skins are not pliable when they are dry. you wan to be able to get all of the air bubbles out and create an air tight seal when applying the skins.

      Answered on 3/5/2012 by Justin from 3Rivers Archery
    • A:

      The skins need to be hydrated so that they are pliable and easy to work with. I soak the skins for about 1/2 an hour in water. Then, I remove them from the water and blot them dry with a paper towel. They'll still be damp but not soaking wet. While the skins are soaking, you can "size" your bow by applying a thin layer of glue (I use Titebond 3) to the back. Sizing allows the wood to soak up the glue and helps the skins adhere. One the glue is tacky or dry, add more glue to the back and apply the skins. Be sure and wrap the bow with an ace bandage, or remove air bubbles and excess glue by hand.

    Are any skins available that are minimum 5-6" wide by 40-45" long

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The skins that we carry are for backing bows. They are normally 2" to 3" wide and typically only 36" to 40" long. We do not have any under your specifications.

  • Q:

    The bow I am building is 48" long and 2 1/2" at the widest point on the limbs. Will these skins be wide enough? Also, should I finish the bow first, then apply the skins and finish again. Or just finish once after the skins are in place. Thanks for your help

      A:

      You will not be able to get 2 1/2'' out of these skins. If, by chance, we have some that are this wide it will be because of the belly scales on the sides. The belly scales do not compliment the skin.
