Nope, the barb does not toggle.  The head can be designed to come off the shaft, yes, just like a harpoon head.

Here are the pictures of the bone arrowheads I made this evening.  The glue and some wrappings are not shown because I needed to switch out the arrowheads.  Enjoy.  ;D

First attempt. I was curious to see how feasable they were. Slices through paper like a rasorblade . Took about 10 mins to make with the bandsaw and beltsander. They look great on a dogwood shaft and compliment the more" primitive" style bows quite nicely.The others posted give me inspiration to pursue this endeavor further.It also makes me wonder just how much further the timeline of archery stretches beyond the 10,000 years that is currently supported by archeological evidence, as bone points,animal/vegetable based strings, feathers, and wood bows don't typically hold up too well in the climates of the areas where they would be used. (other than arctic)

Hi,
Sure is fine work here...note to Sadie...friend of mine sent his Dremel back  to the company...told them he loved it and all there tools, etc...and they sent him a rebuilt...no charge at all...(after talking about it they can't really lose as they sell all those sanding disks and such...bet that is where the profit it...anyway...consider sending it back with a nice note and see what happens..

Here are a set of bone points I made from the thigh bones from a doe I got last year with the rifle.  The longer ones with pencil marks on them I am going to make shorter as they can almost flex in my fingers.

What if you dipped them in super glue?

I guess I could do that but I have plenty of length so shortening them a bit should not be a problem.  I am trying to decide how to handle the concavity on the inside of the bone...might make for hafting to a shaft troublesome.  But I guess I can just try one and see.

I have a memory that here in GA broadheads have to be at least 3/4" wide...?  Can anyone confirm that?

Thanks,  Paul

Boiling them will take the limberness out of them . The oils and whatnot (too sientific?) leach out and make for a stiffer /harder product. My wife thinks(knows) I'm crazy but I use the bones from the roasts for arrow strike plates  and they are nice and hard . The head from the pic above ,I believe is rib roast.LOL. I wouldn't overdo it though as it may become too brittle. Medium well is just about right. ;).
 Paulc. try using the concave bit to your advantage for hafting.  Like the stone points you have to play with the notch and fit each individually.

Hey, so i was thinking about making some bone heads, but i noticed that most of the time the bone heads will be around 50 grains. so to increase weight i was thinking, could i drill a hole in the center and then cut a same diameter steel rod section so i can fill in the hole with it. I was thinking this would allow me to get upwards or 150-200 grains or more, and at the same time i would be adding some style. Is there any structural disadvantage to what im talking about? The metal would be glued in.
