Fletching arrows and making trade points, these are out of 50,000 material and weigh in at about 160, just what I like. :)

Mounting trade points and trimming feathers. BigA 's grand daughter trying her hand at flint napping, not doing to bad. ;)

Ya I think they will do the Job Bob if I do my part, they came in , in the 650 grain range, some a little more, some a little less but around that. They are a little heaver than I usually shoot [550] so I need to work with them a bit but they all fly very good. Headed down in a bit to take care of Sally, last day for medicine so we will see how she does.  :)

Ready for snake skins. My last heat gun finely went out so I had Bill pick me up a couple in town, they seem to be pretty good, hope they last. My girls still happy to be back together. Got some spec's on my next knife project, always want a real Bowie, hard to get info on what was the first but this is close enough I think. :)
