The thin -1/16" phenolic bends pretty easy and the plastic spring clamps from harbor freight work nicely. I have also used 040 fiberglass for composite tips, but I prefer phenolic. I have an Osage billet bow from 1994 that my friend used a 1/4" thick piece of chechen for the tip, no bending that so he had to make the pieces got with out pressure. We used a FF string.

I may use too much CA but I want plenty in there. I use the blue top gorilla , and wet both surfaces. Robert pretty much described my madness of method.

I use the black tubes of superglue from WallyWorld 4 tubes $1.57 and have never had a problem. Well................ sometimes I have glued my fingers to the bow tip, if that counts. Clothspins work great
