Cody - I buy the felt from a local fabric store.

Actually I don't care much for felt as a background in a display case, far to flashy for my very primitative tastes.

My preference is a simple burlap background painted ivory or paraffin. Some texture with the elegance of old museum quality.

Frank - You'll have to give me a quote for some nice boards for a new batch of display cases.

Cody - Burlap from a fabric store is in a roll just like other fabrics. Just smear glue on the back and stick on burlap and let dry for at least a day before painting. Would guess a burlap feed sack would work just fine if it is large enough. If you have to use more than one feed sack, seams may be able to be hidden by the wooden strips for clips.

Depending on the paint, it may take 2 or 3 coats for the burlap as the fabric soaks up the liquid. Paint your strips for the clips the same color as the burlap before installing the clips, then screw the slips to the back.

Cody - If you the make the cases 34" x 42" x 2" or 3" deep a light inside the case may not do a lot of good. Really can't say for sure. Have seen hundreds of 2" or 3" deep broadhead display cases but don't remember any with a light inside. Some of the much deeper rotating cases have lights, something like you would see at a jewelry store display.

Cody -

You can just paint the back of your display white which is the easiest and certainly one of the best ways to do make a display. I renovated this display case by removing all the clips and painting the boards with white paint. The case was one of five of Floyd's original broadhead and arrow displays. Nice to look at but the items are not covered with glass so I use it for fish points now...

Ron-LOL Yes my friend I been bitten hard by the collecting bug.. But like my dad tells me I could be sending that money on other things ( I sure you guys know what he talking about) But as you all know I love the archery History.


Wade, I was thinking would just taking white drawing paper work as well or look good at all and I have to do is glue it to the back board ?.. Or would painting look better ???..

Cody - White paint would be better than drawing paper as the paper would probably get punctured and cut from the broadheads as well as getting dirty from the oil and dirt on the heads. Paint cleans up a lot easier than paper.

I haven't had any luck finding any info on the cabinet door clips. All the sources on the internet so far do not show the old style door clips [banghead]

Will pass on any info I find.

Are the clips that 3 River's sells the good ones or are they the small ones?

$55.00/100 there.

Trap - Just checked the arrow clips on 3 Rivers. They are the good style, adjustable and larger...

I'm pretty sure I've found the source for arrow clips. If we can get 1001 ordered we can get them for .34 each plus shipping. PM me if you're interested in getting in on a bulk purchase.

The next break in price is for 5000 or more. Not sure we can hit that but I'm confident we can find enough folks to make the 1000+ order.

I sent the info to Wade and I'll wait for him to confirm that they are the correct clips.
