    Anyone have a picture of proper EZ press finger placement on a MR bow?

    Last Chance EZ press http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJcvjd9vUkE and another one.

    Around 4:30 he’s pressing a bow similar to the MR7. If you search around I know I have seen other videos on pressing two limb bows and remember to back out the limb bolts 9 times on the MR7 before pressing it.

    So fingers over limb tips? Someone was saying finger tips in the divet in the plate on the backside of the limb.

    Canuck – let me add that you don’t have to use the ‘divets’ and can use the flat of the fingers on the limbs, but – if you have a bow with a draw stop on the cam, the stop may be in the way. You may have to remove the draw stop from the cam.

    Keep in mind I have a home-built press. The fingers aren’t exactly like the one’s you may have on your press.

    When I used the ‘flats’ of my press fingers for bows without a draw stop, the screws on the limb tips cut into the ‘dip’ on my press fingers. If you have an Easypress, I’d call em. I’m sure they’ll take care of your questions.

    it works very well to put the finger tips in the “divots”. this is how we like to press them.

    Is it safe to remove the axle with the bow in the press or do you need to relax the limbs in order to remove the axle and cams?
