    MAGNETIC ARROW/BOLT REST 874442478 Does anyone know how I could make one like the production made ones online? I'm thinking simple neodymium stick magnets arranged in the pattern you'd find online. I was also thinking of instead of having a tongue holding down the bolt there would be a magnet holding it in place, decreasing friction even more, lemme know! P.S. yeah i know bolts arent magnetic, I'd add a small piece inside the bolt!

    Saw a few images of the magnetic rests and think you could make one by drilling holes radially around the perimeter of your 'frame'. Saw some jigs on you tube that could inspire your own drill jig while researching soda can / beer can alcohol stoves.
    Unless you have a finely tuned crossbow first, bristle rests are far easier. Maybe a v block with toothbrush heads for bearings would work?

    I have seen a few rests on YT made from cheap toothbrushes.
