Arrow Fletching

The arrows are crested and sealed, and I’ve started fletching.

Arrows

Fletching new arrows and repairing old ones.

This time, I’m using a straight jig at an offset rather than a helical.  I’ve set it at the maximum offset possible, which JoJan says is 2°.  The end of the feather takes a little more pressure to get it to hold, but so far so good.  After this I’m going to try thread wrapping the fletching – I’m town between red silk or black.
