I'm sure I'm not the first person to think of this but I thought I'd share an idea for an adjustable press.

This type of clamp is available at any Home Depot or woodworking store and is inexpensive. Adjustable to work on any lever bow.

Nice idea Paul. I never gave thought to something as simple as that. It is a great way to work on all sizes of lever bows.

Pretty sure the idea never would have occurred to me... not sure I'd ever give it a try but if I did I'd go with one of the XP600 clamp models since they are much more rugged. Very cool idea though and you may very well be the first person to have thought of it.

My bow clamp... and cat

Clamp is used to clamp the "winged" base to any counter top. This press handles about 75% of my bows... I have another that's at work at the moment that handles the remainder of my bows. If I ever get a spare moment at work I'll finish a third model that will be good for all my bows.

Exactly what I use but I clamp it vertically in my bench vise.
