      I used the slot method with leather seemed to work good, I went ahead and
      tillered into the 21/2"mounting area to allow that to work also, feels a lot
      better still has plenty of draw strength, waiting for nocks to dry so i can string
      it up and try it tomorrow. I think this bow will end up kind of a model
      prototype for the next one as everything is experimental. How do most cock the bow?
      I will be using a cocking stick for the time being, till I perfect some kind
      of lever. The string will be sliding across the top of the stock so I am
      making an arrow slot that puts the string level with nock height, Is this normal?
