Tools for the Traditional Craftsman
from Beavertooth Tools



Copies of Archery - The Technical Side are available from Dick Baugh for $15.00 plus $4.00 for shipping and California sales tax. This classic is a collection of articles on archery written by real scientists from 1929 to 1946. It includes bow design and performance, the importance of arrow stiffness, aerodynamics of arrows, aiming methods, bow strings. All of the analysis and discussion predates the use of computers. This is a copy of a copy of a book that is very hard to find. I am assuming that no copyright laws have been broken in offering this for sale.
