    Default Nock removal

    Is it possible to remove nocks from carbon arrows once thy're glued in? I had a dozen made from hunters friend and want to give it a go at making my own lighted nocks and don't want to buy new arrows

    They may not be glued in. I never glue in nocks. Grab them, twist and pull. Try a pair of needle nose pliers if you can't get a hold on them. If they they are in fact glued in I am no help to you.

    If they are glued in (usually they are not) we cut them flush and use a long screw that fits in the center hole of the nock. Then we pull it out with the help of a vise.

    I echo what Hutch said. I also use a lighter very little heat and it may come out easier. Don't burn the Carbon.
