I shot off all of my vanes on my arrows, and today i went out and got some glue and new vanes for the arrows and my buddy gave me his jig to use. How to i prep my arrow shaft for putting new vanes on. I usually have the shop do it but i didnt want to pay 10 bucks and wait a week.

Thanks
Sam.

what i do is take a DULL razor blade ... get all the other old glue off ... put some acetone on a rag and clean thoroughly ... then your all ready to go! which type of glue are you using?

Don't use isprophyl rubbing alcohol. It has oils in it. Drug store should have 91% or denatured alcohol. This what you want. Once you remove the old fletching and glue scuff up the surface with a pad of Scotchbrite. Then clean the shaft with the alcohol. Acetone works, too, but don't soak the shaft in acetone. Just wipe it down real good.

He's made a vast improvement so I'm cutting him some slack. Especially since I don't do everything perfect myself. :cool:
