Insert the cable ends through the V of each limb (figure 2). 

With the jackscrew adjusted approximately 1" out (figure 1, B), pull the cable through the adjustable end piece until there is no slack in the cable (figure 1, A).


Note: If the bow is to be completely disassembled the jackscrew will need to be started approximately 1/2" to 1" from its fully extended position.







Slide the cable stop (figure 1, A) completely over to the end of the slot in the adjustable cable end, making sure that it is seated properly past the indents (figure 3).  

Inspect the cable before each use.  If there is any sign of damage, such as a fray, the cable must be replaced immediately.  Never use the Bowmaster with a damaged cable.  Contact us directly for replacement cables




Fold the leather pads supplied in half and place them in the V of each limb between the Bowmaster cable and the limb (figure 4).

CAUTION: Position the Bowmaster at least 4" from the last stop (Figure 1, C) before compressing the bow, otherwise the stop may be pulled into the cable roller resulting in damage to the cable roller and cable.



Turn the jackscrew clockwise until the tension is adequately removed from the sting and cable to perform the repair.  The 5/8" hex head on the end of the jackscrew permits the use of a wrench or socket driver to make the job even easier.



When the repairs are complete, check the string and cables for proper position, then turn the jackscrew counter clockwise to restore tension to the string and cables.




WARNING: The limbs of a compound bow are under extreme tension.  Use caution while working on the bow.  Keep the face of the limbs away from you at all times.  Eye protection must be worn.




Note: With proper maintenance, the Bowmaster will give years of dependable service.  The Jackscrew, thrust washer and cable should be kept well oiled.  All-purpose or machine lubricating oil should be used.  Allow the oil to penetrate into the strands of the cable before removing excess oil.
