    So I ordered a Vibracheck online for my Martin and when I was looking at them online they said "Fits Most Bows" but guess what...it doesn't, toooo small. So I went to Ace Hardware to look for a reducer but the people there are clueless so I think im going to have my buddy make me a part in his machine shop and have him install the part in my bow with the Green Locktite so I wont come out. You guys think this is a good idea or should I just send it back?

    Honestly, I'd just send it back. Seems like more work than it'd be worth.

    Post a pic if you can. Need to get one for the girlfriends bow. Curious what you had to do to yours.

    all we did was measure the inside/opening in the bow and the size of the vibracheck threaded insert. cut a peice of round tube stainless steel to 1 inch bored a hole through to match the size of the insert and threaded the inside of it and boom it work. It slid right in to the hole and I set my set screw and threaded the vibracheck right in.
