Brandon Law: i cant find 3/8 field points, what are you doing for the tip of the arrow?

Brandon Law: 3/8 arent standard arrow diameters, what do you use for tips?

BrushCountryJamboree: jonnoocha do you also have the 5/8" cutter, reason i am asking is i need some 3/8" & 5/8" dowels made from straight grain Maple

jonnoocha: No, not these. I bought a rough sawn board of Sitka Spruce from woodcraft (I have a store close to my work) that I cut down on my table saw to stock that was about 7/16" square x 32" long. Length would vary depending on your arrow length. I used the spruce because it was very close grained and perfectly quarter sawn, giving me grain that ran perfectly down the length of the shaft.

sbosco10: your rightt . i didnt think of that

jonnoocha: Depends on what you mean by "after they are cut". I use some pieces of wood with a 1/2" groove cut into them to sort of guide the dowel after it's cut. I'm holding 200 grit sandpaper to it as the dowel goes through the first "support" if you will, to hold it steady, and give it a quick sanding before I finish em up. If you meant straightening after they are cut, these came out very straight, but if straightening is needed I suggest searching it for that.

sbosco10: Can you put a normal straight piece of wood found in a forest in it ?

jonnoocha: I have never tried that, but would think a piece of wood straight from the forest would be very wet, and would either gum up your cutter, or crack after it dried after you cut it.

TheAntiAss: Gosh what would I do to get a 5/16th dowel maker like this...

stroscar: Great vid thanks, Where are you getting the wooden squares? from hardware store?

jrdubois1122771: is there anything you have to do to keep them from bowing after they are cut, or do they stay straight by themselves?

thekangarooboxer: you would probably want to dry it first. maybe heat treat it and give it a few bend corrections.

jonnoocha: Sorry BCJ. I only have the 3/8" cutter.
