Would denatured alcohol work for cleaning the shaft and feather quill? I'm thinking the problems I had a while back when using fletch tape was because I didn't clean the quill of the feather. Thanks for a great video.

so does this really save money down the road or is it just to say you did it and enjoy it and can mess around with different vane styles?

is it cheaper buying full length feathers in bulk?

thanks

there are basically two camps - those who have a need to build and shoot their own arrows to shoot, and those who just need arrows to shoot. if you need to ask what camp you belong in, yer probably better off buying ready-to-shoot arrows.

as to 'what does it cost to build arrows?', do the math - what it costs for raw shafts, the minimal tools and finishing materials, the feathers or fletches, points and nocks ... yes, buying in bulk makes it all cheaper ... and then, how many arrows will you need for the rest of your archery/bowhunting life? now compare all of that against a set of store-bought ready-to-shoot arrows.
