Bow Tip Mortice

This bow had the back of the tip break and the back of the bow mortice blow out. Here are the repair steps and some photos.

  1. Carefully glue the broken piece back
  2. Remove the damaged tip
  3. Fit a piece of fiber into the mortice so that it's attached to the two sides and spans the back
  4. Glue the fiber piece into the mortice
  5. Fit a new tip, leaving a little thick
  6. When rehairing a bow that has broken this way, make the block and hair so that it's only a sligltly snug fit.
