How to get a flush fit on a taper arrow point

Ever wondered how to get a taper fit arrow point to sit flush with the arrow shaft?

It's something so easy yet very few archers know how to do it and we all know there's something not quite right about the shoulder of the point sitting proud on the shaft.

Here's the tip. Cut your tapers on the shaft as normal. Get yourself a small butane torch (about £5 on fleabay) and a pair of pliers. Heat the point up while being held in the pliers and force the hot point on to your tapered shaft. The heat makes a slight shoulder and compresses the fit making it all sit flush.

Told you it was easy! Watch this space for more arrow making tips coming soon...
