georgetown oversize folsumish looking point
« on: April 11, 2019, 10:36:40 pm »
The first flute on this point went amazingly perfectly right out the center of the tip.
I made the nipple too wide on the second flute and I knew it but thought it might work anyway so I tried it.
The flute got off center and didn't get as deep as I wanted because the one side that cut through the nipple was unable to spread out and caused a nasty crack that didn't go all the way through. It's a wonder it didn't break and I don't know how it didn't, but I learnt to make that nipple narrower from now on.

Oh man
I appreciate the comments
deerhunter21 I do hunt with points that I make. I have not kilt a deer with one yet. Still waiting on the right one to get close enough. We have a 13" minimum inside spread requirement and deer that big are hard to come by where I hunt.

Gutpile I do use a Solberger jig

thanks
I slow mo videoed the flutes releasing but it was too fast for the camera to capture. It shows a violent explosion upon release and you see shrapnel flying out from it but the flute comes off so incredibly fast that you just don't see it happening at all.
I also see a sharp kick back when the flute releases and anything setting on the base of the jig gets bounced up in the air about 3/16" high. I never would have thought that was happening and it seems like it could be what causes some points to break in the middle after the flute has already gone to the tip because the force that causes things to bounce has to be going back up through the tip of the point where it rests on the antler anvil piece. By then the resistance is the clamp arms which are still bearing the weight of me sitting on them and it has to be bouncing the point, clamp arms, and me too when it bounces the base of the jig like it does.
I really neeed to learn to edit videos where I can crop them and blend multiples together to form a collage of flute channel releases.
