It takes around 18 seconds to turn an inventory of 14 shortbow (u) and 14 bowstrings to 14 shortbows (with banking). This makes it possible to stringing 2,800 bows an hour.

In practice it can be hard to buy shortbow (u) on the GE, in which it case it is an option to buy the logs and craft the shortbow (u) yourself. An inventory consisting of 14 logs and 14 bowstrings can be converted to 14 shortbows in about 48 seconds. This makes it possible to string 1,050 bows an hour for a profit of 634,200
