The arrow I receive will go in my collection so spine weight isn't critical.
Title: Re: 2019 Arrow Trade
Post by: backwoodsguy on July 20, 2019, 05:14:57 am
I'd like to be included. I've made arrows out of Walmart garden stakes, dowling, real river cane that I collected and yaupon collected here on my property. Non of them came out looking as nice as yours.

We're 10 shy of last year so far.
Title: Re: 2019 Arrow Trade
Post by: Pat B on July 20, 2019, 04:30:13 pm
There have been 184 views.
 We are all archers and bowyers but neither of those skills is worth a hoot without arrows. Everyone that builds and shoots bows should learn to make arrows, either the easy way with all store bought stuff or from scratch.

Title: Re: 2019 Arrow Trade
Post by: Pat B on July 28, 2019, 09:08:04 pm
All arrows should be shootable. Whether they are correct spine or not will be the case. You can suggest your spine to your maker.

Not exactly sure how this arrow trade works since it's my first time. Do I trade one or more of my arrows. If so, where do I mail it to? Field tip or flint that I chipped?
Title: Re: 2019 Arrow Trade
Post by: Trapper Rob on July 30, 2019, 10:32:37 pm
You only have to send one arrow but you can send as many as you want it can be a field point or a chipped point

I've gotten a hill cane shaft almost straight enough to continue the build. I also have another "special" arrow I'm working on which may or may not work.  ;)

Title: Re: 2019 Arrow Trade
Post by: Pat B on August 02, 2019, 06:29:31 pm
Put 2 nails in the side of your work bench 26" apart. Then get a 2# weight you can hang in the middle of the shaft and match the deflection against a favorable shaft. This will get you started until you can come up with a more accurate spine tested.
I know where you can get plans to make a spine tester and get a weight/deflection table.

Jerry, the cane arrow has a 3 feather tangential style fletching and the sourwood arrow has that crook in it. Even though the sourwood has the crook it flew better from my bow than the cane arrow. I love crooked arrows!   8)

Eric (High-Desert), sent you a private message for the arrow trade. I sent one yaupon arrow with steel hunting tip, a arrow straightening tool and two yaupon blanks for you to mess with. The more complete one was too heavy and I didn't feel like thinning it down. I don't have a spine tester but I do test the arrows I make by shooting them from a 49# bow.

Hopefully, progress will improve now that I have 2 thumb planes!  The older one got moved by the garage troll, and the only way to find it was to get another one!  It only took 3 stops to get one at Lowe's!  Set the new one down in the work area, for some reason, leaned over the bow bench and the old one was trying to hide under a bucket!  Caught it! : >:D, and put a high visibility yellow leash on it!  Btw, has anyone experimented with footer length!  As in what would the maximum practical length be?

Great arrow! Shoots amazing! I feel bad because the arrowhead went straight through my target and hit the garden box in the back. The tip broke off. I feel bad but that just goes to say that ed can knap a good point! sorry about the point ed.

Post by: 1442 on September 05, 2019, 10:26:16 am
I'm late.
Early last week I had to trade a easy job three minutes from my house for a long hard job two hours away.
I already had a good start on the arrow so I took it with me thinking I could have it finished up and in the mail by deadline, but that didn't happen.
I was working in knee deep mud and waist deep water setting posts under a dock on Toledo Bend lake while the water is low, and it just about kilt me.
I managed to cut the feathers while there but that was all I got done on the arrow.
I'm back home now and will get back to work on the arrow, and will have it completed soon. It will take a couple days as I don't want to rush it and compromise quality for the sake of getting done any sooner.
Sorry for being late with your arrow Tower.

 Very nice arrow, Rob. Will make a great addition to my collection.   :OK

Iíve got my arrow finished. Had trouble getting the spine just right but managed to get a shaft 3/8Ē in diameter and spined correctly. This Saturday itíll be sent out with one day as my recipient has been waiting too long already. Heís got a really long draw length but I hope he likes the arrows anyway. Tracking will be provided to show proof. Iím sorry it took me so long guys.

Post by: 1442 on September 10, 2019, 11:30:41 pm
I found some time to work on my arrow tonight.
Shaped the nock, tacked the fletchings in place and made enough yuca cordage to wrap down the fletchings with after I trim them to size and shape.
I should be able to get it finished up in the next couple of days.

Title: Re: 2019 Arrow Trade
Post by: Hawkdancer on September 10, 2019, 11:37:46 pm
Neat!  That cordage looks like a lot of work!  Methnks everyone who is/was late shipping(including me) shall receive 50 lashes with a cold, wet noodle!- or at least have to spring for a drink when we meet in person! >:D (lol)   There are a bunch of good looking arrows in this trade!

quick question. how do you get the glue out of feathers? could I steam them?
Title: Re: 2019 Arrow Trade
Post by: Hawkdancer on September 12, 2019, 11:45:35 am
Try acetone or fngernail polish remover, should work, be gentle, though.  Best way is to not get the glue on the the feathers, but it happens to the best of us sometimes! >:D (lol)
Hawkdancer
Title: Re: 2019 Arrow Trade

Post by: Hawkdancer on September 13, 2019, 12:20:41 am
Might have to start over if they are really messed up!  Of course, none of the rest of have ever done that >:D (lol)!  I think the adage is: You can go to he** for lying, just like you can for stealing!  However a mountain man wouldn't never lie about anything! >:D.  If you need more feathers, pm me your contact info and I can send you some.  If you go goose or turkey hunting, save the wings!!

I got a beat up box in the mail today. I was hoping to find my arrow in one piece. When I opened the box, I find four pieces, and all four are fletched and have practice tips. The front 2/3 is sporting burn rings every inch or so, while the back 1/3 is red, wild turkey feathers the cock feathers are dyed red. All wrapped with artificial sinew. The shaft I think is dowel, but I may be mistaken. Warpath these look awesome! Thank You! Ed
