Not paying $20 for a feather rest use to be $10 from Trap

I like it

Rooty , You are like me love to “Tinker” and make your own stuff . I got to say Trap does make a sweet feather rest and they vary in price from different vendors .

Feather rests may be one of the easiest to make. Rooty, I know you could make a few in a half hour.

Funny you should say that. I have discussed with Larry Root on the construction. The Roots used a gasket base material. Larry remembers stinking up the basement making them for his dad. Here's a pic of one he probably made close to the same year I was born.

The toothbrush rest is rather nasty…

Keefer's a few Root bows of this era came with unlined plates like yours

BT true but should hold up to the downward pressure of string walking.

I like the slope toward the window you put on the bristles. Should work pretty good.

Jack Howard made his on a thin piece of leather. He used six feathers, three right wing and three left.

Worst thing about puttering... Three hours, six iterations, my wife wonders why I'm not in for dinner, and I realized that the first plan was the best. Best thing about puttering...First try works, I'm still in late for dinner, and my wife doesn't understand why I'm so proud of my amazing creation. Best thing about my wife...She pretends she cares and it's important. She's the best.

I like the idea of burning to get rest fletching.

From: B.T.

Good idea

Nothing wrong with putzing around the shop trying to make something yourself. Keeps you out of the bars and other trouble. See, saves money as well. Money needed for more arrows. Not sure about that “brush” rest but the feather rest is cool.

From: JBM

ROOTY, I think that the LONG bristle rest will work out best! Less wear and tear + the dark bristles won't show dirt easily.

Being a dentist I need to put one of those on my bow. LOL. With a dental floss nocking point

I’m a fan of feather rest but my bows have a curved or radius shelf and bending the leather base is tough to fit.
