    Tuning forks?

    This just came up on FB - a post by Infinite Curve
    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...r-bow-alignmen

    Kind of a neat idea, elaboration of limb guages like the Beiters with a builtin parallax element.

    I'm backer no. 5

    Anything that makes aligning a bow easier is good in my book. Beiter gauges are a great tool, but they don't solve the problem these gauges do. Here's hoping they get funded.

    Does a "set" mean a pair? Presumably a minimum you need to align a bow is two forks?

    EDIT BTW I don't know if the link in the first post is deliberately broken but this is it - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...en/description

    They seem like a terrific idea. I hope they go into production and become available in the UK.

    Beiter gauges are good but there is always a bit of guess work into which limb to adjust.

    It's an interesting idea. I never got on with Beiter gauges as I found that if the string touched the gauges then there was too much stiction between the string and the gauge and you could get any reading that you want, and if there was a gap then you get parallax errors.

    I'd back it but unfortunately the postage and import duties makes it way too expensive in my opinion. I'd buy a pair in a heartbeat from a local shop for 20-30 though.

    Oh, and as Jon says, it's really not clear if a set is one or two gauges.

    A set is two gauges.

    It shows this in a picture (cannot upload for some reason).

    if you scroll down the Kickstarter page you can see exactly what is included in each option, about 2/3rds of the way down.
