Finished Arrows

I’ve finished the arrows, mostly.  I need to re-tip four of them, since they came up wobbly.   I also broke one during final shaft straightening, so I have 11 finished arrows.

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.

Beginning Arrow Cresting

For these arrows, I decided to go with a red and while Ealdormere theme.  So far I’ve done the red base coat.

Base-cresting

So far, so good.
