Did this video help you?

Bill Smith: Most of the used skis on ebay will cost you $50 or more plus sometimes a very high shipping fee.

Stew Pedaso: I am almost ready to start cutting the wood for the riser and I had a question. If I want to buy a bow string what length is it. I'll be using this for bow fishing...hopefully

Stoney Lonsome: I like everything except the finish on the limbs and the way they attach. I would prefer a way to remove and attach them without needing any tools. I also noticed that on my Fred Bear 76er take down bow the limbs are wrapped with some kind of rubber on the ends that attach, it tightens them and quietens the bow considerably. It also reduces wear on the limbs in this crucial area. Just some suggestions, thanks for sharing.

Aus Archer: If your looking for skis got to cash converters, I saw a pair of sports skis for $5 last time 

CP17787: To counteract the curve of the skis, consider back-mounting. Black widow bows make really expensive, back-mounted takedowns if you'd like something to look up for a model. The taper on the skis I picked up is fairly abrupt on the top, example: top of ski -- /| -- bottom. If you do this you will need to make sure your mounting surface is stronger toward the ends of the riser. I would also recommend using a "floating" limb mounting system as opposed to the "fitted" system.

Cody Folsom: The reason it damages your veins is the rock on the arrow needs to be turned so that two veins touch the felt not one or one is in the direct path to be sliced off 

NanoRobotGeek: i found second hand skis for 1 dollar pick up only =P

Ed Drow: If you say "sorry for the wind" means that your a airbender

Noah Zahn: there are bows on ebay that cost 40$

Hristo Taushanov: I've got the same skiis a long time ago, waiting to find out hot to convert them in a bow, and now I know how thanks to you! Thank you!!!

cameron williams: Hey meanman i have made a bow of of your tut and have a video showing it and thanking you for it so plz go and check the video btw can you plz leave your email plz so i can keep in touch with you. Thanks again and have a great xmas thx.

romeo guzman: obviously ur bow is so wide that it has too much air drag and it will decrease the power to flex back

LuisVasDeCamoes: are you crazy? why the hell would i destroy my skis even though i dont have any

WV591: Have to be careful buying skis some have air core channel. not solid in the middle.

DMdrifterHp: thx, very nice videos :) could you please add subtitles? not all people can handle technical sides of English language

Zack Haman: Im looking to make a bow similar to this one but i was going to steam bend the two ends, do you think that would work or would it lose its ability to bend back? also do you think hickory would be a good wood to use? and what should the dimensions be for the two end pieces (thickness, width, and length) my arms are quite long about 6 feet from one to the other so im not sure how big long to make them. Thanks :)

Alex L: u sound like u are reading a script !! ... only let down :P nice bow though

meanman1992: sweet keen to see it

meanman1992: you will probably have to make your own limbs from scratch

Nick Primm: Where did you gef the bolts?

Kvestak: hey, realy nice, now im realy interested in making one of these.. im realy tight on the budget so can u tell me about how much did all of this cost - minus the tools and wood.. i mean u said skis about 15$ (i think) and if there is anythhing more pls tell me, if u see this!! greetings from Croatia :) Agram

Simo Victor: Thx dude you're awsome :D

Alex L: @meanman1992 dats ok :) public speaking's just one of those things that looks easier than it is :P the only problem for me is that i live in Australia, so its almost impossible to find ski's :) and we don't have any good woods for bows

DingoDave19: I enjoyed your first tutorial on Takedown Bow but this one is much better as you have slowed down your presentation and I can follow it better. Keep them going

Hazehellivo: You can also go to a scrapyard and buy a car leaf spring, much cheaper then skis.

pyrexian26: nice paint job!

aj torres: good video but dude you kinda seem like a pickle

meanman1992: sounds like you expect it to be simple. deflection of a cantiliver=(load*limblength^3)/(3*youngmodulsofthewood*secondmomentofarea) and secondmomentofarea for a rectangle crossection = width*thickness^3/12 you can't apply this directly since limbs do not have a consistent cross section but it does give you some idea that the load is roughly proportional to the thickness cubed, roughly inversely proportional to the length cubed and roughly proportional to the width does that help??

Lorenzo Ruberti: People have made limbs for this type of bow out of pvc pipes.. I guess its less effective or durable - i think the best you can find without expensive import of crazy materials and way too fancy tools. there are video's out here on YouTube, think you are capable of typing the right keywords, right?

skatingisthebest14: Hey, that other dude is wearing my beanie! Nice bow btw, and good tutorial.

Peter Drinkwater: Soo cool . What is the thickness of yous limbs?

Willy T: Thanks for taking the time. Great video.

SangoProductions21: ah, ok

meanman1992: ahhh buy some skis

Luna Sparkle: if you dont have skis is their a good flexable wood you can use?

meanman1992: :D

Nathan Burt: Where are you standing during the disclaimer? Beautifull view :D

balbin23: great bow ! did you remove all aluminium from skiis and you are left with just fiber glass??

Matthew Cote: Question, how do you prep the limbs if you are using the fiberglass skis?

Klaus Rupert: Not be sorry about the wind. Wind is everywhere!! XD

ScreamenStephen: Hey, love the video! Gonna give it a try. Just a couple questions, removing the plastic like you did, does that weaken the limb and would it be a smart idea to put a fiberglass backing on the limbs to to make them stronger? Thanks again...

Ray fisher: cool

brian barnes: i made three bows using one pair of ski's , the ski's had carbon fibre in them one bow has 45lbs draw weight the second has 50 lbs draw weight the third bow i used the two back halves of the ski's and it has 75 lbs @ 26" ...... ski's work great... nice job on the video .

RC Model Planes: Skis ... what a great idea.

meanman1992: @ScreamenStephen well no doubt it does to some extent but I doubt much though, if you don't remove the plastic than you will not be able to get to the screws that hold on the metal rim on the out side, if your skis have them, and yeah fibre glass with make them stronger if that's what you want however, I would probably put it on the other side of the limbs because im pretty sure fibre glass works better in tension rather than compression

meanman1992: @jacksonhobbs1 that's great to hear

Klaus Weber: like

meanman1992: mt keria Wollongong Australia

denny mears: good job mate

meanman1992: not sure
