Squeaky bow?

5 posts in this topic

I was recently practicing shooting the bow, when all of a sudden the bow has developed a squeak in the lower cam area? What do ya recommend that I try to make the squeak go away.

a quick fix ; you could give it a shot of WD-40. but i recomend that you take it to a shop and have them relax the bow and clean and relubricate the wheels.

i want to add. i used to recomend to my customers to bring thier bows in every summer to have them inspected;cleaned and relubed! you will get dust,dirt, and crud in there that can not only cause squeeks, but can wear things too.

I try to get my bow in every year to the shop for a check of everything and every other year a new string and cable.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
