    The press looks better than a factory made one. Could you give the tube size and length. What did you used for the screw mechanism.Thank you I am new to the forum and hope I have got this right.

    Hello, I don't know if you still have the plans for this press but, I'm just getting into the sport and would like to build my own. Is there any way I could trouble you for the design of your press? Thank you.

    Hi, just wondering I can get a list of materials! I'm in need of a press and don't want to pay $500 for something I can make in an afternoon. Just curious as to rod type, size, and the fingers mounting bracket ect. Thanks! Great job by the way !

    On archerytalk in the DIY section a guy named Gunner7800 posted full plans and prints a while back. I almost built one and then priced materials (I can't make the fingers and you can't buy them so I would have had to pay someone to make them) and it wasn't much cheaper to build one vs/buy an EZ Green for $399. But if you can get free/cheap materials and have a way to make the fingers, diy is a good way to go.

    MechDoc, are you still on here. Any chance you still have the plans for your press? I would be interested in building one myself
