    Question Spigarelli string jig

    Does anyone know where i can get a Spigarelli string jig? Alt. services have none in stock and i have not seen them stocked elsewhere.
    if not,is there another made of similar quality as all the others I have seen or tried are too feeble and cannot apply tension to the string.
    If all else fails i will have to make my own.Any plans out there?

    You could try giving Quicks a call, they can try and get most things if you ask.

    Spig jig

    Thanks for that,but I have now read a bit about the spig jig and it seems not as good as i thought it was!
    I am hoping to get my hands on a jig made by the Archery coach Ken Bearman (who is a retired Engineer) so i will be able to draw up plans from that and make my own.Unfortunatly Ken does not make them anymore.

    the Spig jig isn't bad, is fairly solid compared to a lot of the jigs out there. Definatley miles better than the arten one our club has!
    C makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot. C++ makes it harder, but when you do, it blows away your whole leg...

    Centreshot sells it, I think. I think the one I got from there is a Spigarelli, but it doesn't seem to have a brand label on it anywhere obvious.

    As I type, Peter is downstairs using our Spig to make a string for a club bow. It's been great, and is much more substantial than the club owned one. With 3 of us shooting, as well as Peter encouraging club members to try making their own, the jig makes loads of strings. The only criticism I have is that the bolts that lets the ends swivel could have had a wing type top to let you tighten /loosen by hand, I have to use a spanner, which is only a slight pain, other than that it's a solid bit kit.

    If you go to www.ely-archers.org.uk and download the archers reference there are details on how to make your own string maker. In fact I`m currently in the process of making my own with those very plans.
    will let you know how that turns out if your interested.

    [Editor's note: Archers reference is also available at the home site http://www.archersreference.co.uk/]

    I've not actually played with it, but the A&F jig looks fairly solid as well.

    I use a Sherwood at home (nothing special, but better than an Arten), the club has a Spiggy - nice and solid, but a pain to adjust.

    I can't find the link I found before. That was to an English on-line store, but I don't remember which one .
    The only link I found in a quick search was:
    http://shop.europearchery.com/produc...d7ddf6740144fa
    which isn't too helpful.
    I'll see if I can find the other one.

    There were some nice plans in Bowsport International by Pip Bickerstaffe - he should know what he's talking about!
