Didn't know the the place to ask, but Special Projects seems reasonable. Anyway I'm trying to come with a way to make my own DAS limb inserts. To that end I'm searching for female threaded brass tubing and need specs for the thread pitch, exterior diameter and interior as well.
I have this old Browning Drake Flightmaster that I no longer use. I want to warf it.
Here are the steps I see I need to do with questions.
1. Remove existing limb bolt inserts. How do I do this?
2. Cut riser limb pads to 18 degrees
3. Install ILF hardware. No questions on this part yet.
Anybody have suggestions and help for my Predator II shafts?
For the the 2040 shafts I’m pretty sure I need the CE Insert #4 but not sure of the diameter of the screw in point I need?
For the 800 shafts would be the half out #2 inserts but again not sure diameter of screw in points? Or I might...
The Lock-N-Load inserts for carbon arrows look interesting. I have never seen anything like them. Has anyone tried them? You insert them without glue. Apparently there is a set screw that locks them into the shaft. You can then remove them or rotate the insert to change the orientation of your...
Like I said in a previous thread, I have a lot of points and inserts from years gone by but I don't know what these inserts were called and when/why were they used?
Also, when were 9/32 points and inserts used. I can see making little kids wood arrows but I haven't seen 9/32 dowels.
I have a 50gn insert behind my field pile that is the same size in length as the standard ones supplied ( give or take a gnats whisker), I would like to try the longer alloy ones that Gold tip supply.
Am I right in thinking that they will alter the spine of the arrow ?
I recently bought a few dozen GT Warrior 500 shafts and trimmed them to 29.5". I'm quite familiar with these shafts as I have used the GT Expedition 500 shafts for years now and I know how they will tune. While experimenting with them, I made up a few with the regular insert and a few with the...
I want to try carbon arrows but I am concerned with being able to repeatedly remove the glued in insert so the shaft can be cut shorter ¼" at a time during bare shaft testing. I've always used hot melt glue on my aluminium shafts but heat is not supposed to be applied to carbon shafts.
I noticed that my limb bolt inserts were loose, so I removed them.
I chased the threads in the riser and cleaned up the threads on the inserts.
What adhesive or compound would you recommend?
High-strength LocTite, super glue, epoxy, JB Weld, something else?
I just bought a dozen Beman Centershot 600s and would like to find pin nocks that fit. Lancaster and 3 Rivers say that there aren't any that fit. 3 Rivers has collars, but I'm not sure how effective they are. I couldn't find a UNI bushing that fit either. I've sent Beman and Easton emails...
Was looking at a 'big' bowhunting magazine earlier, and one thing caught my eye -
Inserts that apparently don't need glue, just a set screw to expand and grip internally at the back of the insert.
Has anyone tried these? Looks like a good idea...
I recently bought some arrows and thought they were bad. I had knew points and when I spun them in my hand, they wobbled. I built a spin tester and yep, wobble city. I removed the point and the arrow spun true. Hmmm new points must be junk. I grabbed an old point that was still pointy and what...
