  • Q:

    I just got a custom hickory longbow that is a 28 draw length and a 30 to 35 pound bow,made for me and I was suppose to get horn nocks put on with it but the company forgot to put them on. So I already have notches in my bow for the string but i was wondering would I just be able to get Horn nocks and put them on and glue them onto the bow myself or would that mess up the length of my bow then and not make my string fit because of the already made notches in my bow?

      A:

      Gluing horn nocks onto the ends of the bow will make the bow longer. This will mean that you will need to get a longer string and it will decrease the weight of the bow. I would recommend doing a horn overlay as opposed to adding the horn nocks. That will not change the weight or length of the bow and still give you a better look than just wood.

      A:

      The length of the bow won't be compromised.  I've put horn nocks on myself after making my bow.  Here's what you'll need:  Ducco Cement Glue or TiteBond II & a rasp file. 
       
      1. Decide which nock you want on the top and bottom lid.
       
      2. Measure the depth of the nock.
       
      3. Mark the depth on the limb.
       
      Once all that is done, start to file the tip of the limb. You'll want to shape the tip so it fits into the nock snuggly.  You don't want to have too much play between the limb and the nock.  After you're done filing, place some glue into the nock.  Then position the nock onto the limb.  Let the glue dry for a few days.  You'll need to store your bow laying flat.  You can test the dryness of the glue by trying to wiggle the nock gently.  If you feel it move, then it needs more time to dry. 
       
      I hope this helps.

  • Q:

    I recently purchased what the seller described to me as being an English yew longbow. The bow appears to be old, but in good condition except for one problem; the bottom noch is missing. The remaining original nock is made of pewter (or at least some metal) and threaded inside so it screws onto the bow's tip. Is there anyone familiar with this type of nock, and if so know where they can be found. I would like to restore the bow to it's original condition as much as possible, but if need be I'll use horn nocks as substitutes, only I question then how that would effect the bows performance. Would your nocks work? I can provide photos and dimensions if needed. Any information or leads would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

      A:

      I do not have any metal limb tips that you would be able to use on that bow. The horn replacements are the best product that I have in this situations.

      I recommend leaving all of the dimensions larger than you normally would. You can always take material off.

      At the widest part, it looks like most of them have a taper that starts at about 3/8".

      A:

      The lower nock is for your string and the upper nock is for your rope stringer.

    Can they be used on a traditional 1 piece recurve
    Asked on 6/8/2011 by Heron from tampa, fl.

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Yes, if you were making a recurve you could incorporate these into the design. They are considerably narrower than the limb tips on most recurves. Depending on your skill level, I would not recommend putting them on a bow that has already been made.
