Ed first!  I'm thinking of building a bow stand like his.

I made a couple bow presses for myself.  Only thing I outsourced was powdercoating.  From raw steel to CNC'ing the fingers, I made them in my shop.  Fun project


How much?

Year ago I built a knock off EZ Press and a knock off X Press.  I've pressed hundreds of bows on the X Press, but since I'm so much more used to it, I only use the EZ Press on super short limbed bows.  I moved to a different house and I had to remanufacture my press stand.  If I can get it done this weekend, I'll take a few pics.  Neither of mine are anywhere as purty as the OP's though.

My old bow press setup that I've used for 10 or 15 years:

My new archery service area is smaller than my old one, so I needed to make my bow press stand a little more compact:

ETA: I kinda jacked up my first try at the braces, so they're a little more refined in the next pics.

The new stand used an old steel table frame that I had laying around.  In the end, I 'm not sure that I gained that much in the smaller footprint department, but now my presses are on a cart with wheels, so I can at least easily roll it up against a wall.  I also freed up a good, heavy set of sawhorses.  Finished product:
