    Hello all, I'm a robotics engineer who recently found traditional archery. I'm quite interesting in the craftsmanship in fletching and bow making as well and decided to build a machine that I though might merge my engineering skills with my newfound hobby. I'm sure you are all familiar with...

    I'm considering fletching my own arrows, and looking for a fletching jig which have at least the following features: - can fletch small diameter arrow shafts (like the Easton carbon one) - can fletch with feathers in helical - can fletch in consistent rotational angle relative to the arrow...

    There are very similar tools on the market from other companies (e.g. Fairbow), but they are mostly focused on European fletching shapes.

    It’s been suggested that I do a tutorial here on TradTalk on how to make a feather grinder. I know there’re a lot of ways to process feathers; this is how I do it. I’d be glad to hear any ideas of how you do it, or, answer any questions about my process. I made a jig years ago from ideas I...

    My husband and I built a lego cresting jig and it works beautifully. To bad bamboo arrows are too twisted for nice straight lines because of the nodes. Wood makes for better crests in this machine. It's a lot of fun doing these projects. Verstuurd vanaf mijn SM-C115 met Tapatalk

    I have an older J8 Jig it's the one I started with way back when. Back then I was broke and getting set up wasn't easy and I get a few things for free from some friends and even some members on the net. I'd like to pass this on to a new archer with a limited budget. It has a r helical clamp and...

    I recently posted about my interest in learning to build my own arrows. Well now I am shopping for a good basic fletching jig. I'll only be doing 3 feathers so I don't think I'll need anything more capable than that. So far I like the JoJan Mono-Fletcher but would like to get comments here...

    Hi, I’m writing a book about making PVC bows and I would like to include some kind of string making. Flemish strings are easy to make, but very difficult to explain in a book (IMO). Endless jigs are difficult to make for beginners. So I thought about a simple "single post" string jig made with...

    Marrying a newly obtained Sky TDX riser with a set of extra long Morrison longbow limbs had me scrambling to find a string of the right length....until Mitch volunteered to build me a couple, I thank you buddy.... But it made me realize that there was another key part of my traditional...

    I know there are many different Flemish jigs, some setup a little different than others. The one I have is marked 60" at the first adjustable hole for string length. I have seen others marked 46 or 48" at the first hole (hole after making the "M" turn between the two end nails) So I am...

    Hi guys, I have been given a load of left wing feathers but have a right offset jig. Will I die if I shoot this combo? Will it destroy the space time continuum? Well maybe not but will my arrows fly ok?:help:
