This is a easy to use, cheap to purchase board. The problem I ran into is that once you have the board there is no easy way to measure your string w/ the adjustable peg. 3 Rivers needs to add length indicators to the board, or at least in the instructions so you have an idea of what length string you are going to cut!! Also a cut slot on the top of the board would be nice, like a small slit of metal that you can run your blad down without cutting into the board!!

    Comments about Flemish String Jig:

    A similar jig from another vendor can cost so much more; but I think this one is priced right. I would have made one before spending $ or more on another.I needed a little shorter string for a smaller 20 lb bow and added a couple holes to accommodate. The instructions lead one to believe you had to try a couple practice string creations before knowing the finished length and I think that is a good idea. After tying a couple practice strings, I was able to determine the correct hole for future strings. There was no markings for how long to make the looping length; however, I decided on 8" from the end to achieve a 3" loop, both ends, similar to the Flemming string I received for a Sage Samick bow. Knowing this 8" length while making the practice strings was useful as it influences the finished string length.

                      Comments about Flemish String Jig:

                      I bought this jig to make some flemish strings for the bows I was making. Having never made a string before, this jig was a tremendous help and came with good instructions.
                      Granted you could always make one of these jigs yourself for basically free if you have scrap wood and nails, but its not very expensive and I figured between making the bow and the strings id rather get to shooting than another project. Plus it looks a whole lot better than one made of scrap wood.

                        I enjoy working with my hands. I build my own arrows, quivers, strings and anything else that has to do with archery. This jig is simple to use, especially with the well written instructions. It is compact so one can set it right in front of you to work with. Once the bundle is on the jig there is no slipping of the string.the bundle is very easy to take off of the jig. I might suggest printing a ruler along the edge of the jig. I marked my own so I have reference points to measure the loopsize, length of twist, etc..

                          Comments about Flemish String Jig:

                          I have tried three different flemish bow string jigs and this one is almost at the top of the list. Considering the affordable price, it comes in as the best buy out there.

                          There are two things that you will need to do when you get this jig. One is to mark off measurement and string length numbers onto the wooden base. The other is to chisel a V-groove into the middle of the board between the two rows of stagger nails to assist in cutting the string. Once this is done, you'll have yourself one nice little flemish jig. (I also added an oil finish to the bare wood, too)

                          One very nice thing about the 3Rivers version of this venerable tool is that it can make up to a 70" string length, while many others stop at a 63" or 65" string length. This is Very nice for those of us making traditional English longbows requiring longer bowstrings.

                          Recommended.
