1. Made in Korea in the early 80s used an
infrared device attached
to the air bow, the bow could then be aimed at the
receiver and fired, the receiver would then show where the arrow would have hit.
2. 2 of the original style of arrow straightener from the
50s/60s, these were tube straighteners.
3. 'Extreme' Tuning System - allows for the nocking point to be
kept parallel through full draw. Attaches to the bow.
4. An original multifletcher of unknown make and
history owned by Ivan Buchanan, could have been made by him (probably was).
5. Martin Lovo Bow Press - Designed in the early
80s by Canadian Don Lovo and produced by Martin Archery. Far ahead of its time
allowed for work on bows without pulling down and breaking the handle. Allowed
for weight and tiller measurement while drawing the bow.
6. Covey Arrow Straightener - Probably the best
designed easiest to use arrow straightener. Did not come with the gauge, but
many of us retro fitted them for easier use and more accuracy. (I have 3 of
7. Prairie Falcon Sight Leveler - Designed by
Gene Leuck, levels sight in all planes
8. ASP 100 Sight, unique design, the pins were
said to have 'memory'. Donated by Dan Beausoleil
In the early '90s, I worked on a promotional
quiver produced by Neet
Archery (Leeroy Young) for the Canadian Team - this is the draft model.
10. Altier Sight

alignment, which was hard to do with the bows of the day.
Levers - invented by Don Kudlachek of Washington State, they widened the
force draw curve, making the draw smoother and more efficient. You can
see them on many of my bows in the
quiver I made for Mike Darrel in the '70s
