Long Bow Eye

Post by hoodman » Sun Mar 22, 2020 7:45 am

I found a bow eye with 5 1/2" of thread length. Should go most of the way through my stem. Thought I would share in case anyone else is looking:

Thanks Matt, I just ordered one as well. These are extremely hard to find in this diameter.

I received mine the other day. I think it is just long enough that I won't have to counterbore the stem.

Good to hear. Mine should be here in a few days. I hope the distance between the threaded rods is the same as my other bow eye since I've already drilled the holes. If not, well, there will be some repairing in my future. :D :D

I already have one hole. So I have to figure out a way to drill a parallel hole. I think I have the original drilling jig so I may be able to put that to use somehow.
