    Take Down Bow Sleeve

    Should come with two brass sleeves instead of one to allow for deciding upper and lower limb for best string alignment.

    Small TD sleeve

        Comments about Takedown Bow Sleeves:

        I used this sleeve building a two PC Osage self bow for traveling. I've been going to FL for the last few years on a spring hog hunt and wanted to use a boy I made this year. I like the being able to use my self bow and being able to pack it in a small space for traveling makes it much easier.

        I've ordered another sleeve from 3 Rivers and will be building another soon.

              Comments about Takedown Bow Sleeves:

              I use both the small and large kits. Takes good woodworking skills to get a good fit. Only problem is the large kit comes with only one brass fitting; this causes the bow not to be straight, 1 limb is off centered by 1/18 to 1/8 of an inch. This may not be a problem for most people. But, I order 2 kits and use 2 brass fittings on the large kit to keep the bow straight.

                  Comments about Takedown Bow Sleeves:

                  Installed take-down sleeves on rawhide-backed osage longbow. Sleeves did not fit one inside the other perfectly out of the "box". It took a certain amount of filing to achieve a smooth mating of surfaces, but once done, everything worked fine. A durable, simple design. I found a neat trick for a super-fine fit was to spread a little quick-set epoxy such as JB Weld inside the female sleeve, put a thin layer of grease on male sleeve, then slide together when the epoxy set to putty-like consistency (don't let it get too hard-happens pretty quick). Pull the male sleeve right back out carefully, clean up the extra epoxy that was pushed around inside female sleeve, and let fully harden. Makes a perfect tight mating of surfaces that "pops" when you pull them apart! Automotive body filler would probably work great too.

                      The sleeves were too tight right out of the package. Even the shape was a bit imperfect. I had to grind it and re-bend it a couple times before it worked. And I had to use grease to get it to fit though that doesn't bother me. I'd try to go to a tubing warehouse before I bought another one.
