    swiss twinbow limbs

    Post by jackdaw on Wed Jun 04, 2014 5:10 am

    I have a twinbow with failing limbs .the company is no longer trading .. I need help to make or buy limbs for the bow .I did see on this site some years ago some one from russia made a twinbow copy .they did show quite a detailed right up on how they made the bow with pictures some of moulding the limbs .I cannot find this write up any more ....my main problem is making the 6mm x 18mm x 250mm long piece of curved fiberglass that make the limbs .all the other pieces I could make or reuse some how .

    Hi,
    Depends how you want to spend the limbs...
    On Ebay you can find limbs Horton, reach length,you can change that are long enough, but the power will not be as original
    The homemade casting resin and fiberglass can try, but the most successful language will not take more than a few hundred shots...
    Hardened steel leaf spring would be perfect in power and strength, the only problem that becomes very hard front crossbow. Juggle

    I think you can buy from Bingham  Archery or maybe from Gordon Plastics fiberglass billets. The real issue is if I remember is the original limbs had no thickness taper which causes them to be over stressed at the fulcrum point. To solve (hopefully) the problem they should have thickness taper (thicker in the middle) from the middle out to the ends to more evenly distribute the stresses.
