23536help! arrow problems!
- Oct 5, 2007( a little long)
I am haveing a bit of a problem, and could use some help. A few
months ago i bought some ceder shafts from 3rivers archery, with the
intent of building more arrows for target shooting.
With one thing or another,(2 floods, moveing in and out of the house
2 times), i just recently got back to this project. I am haveing a
problem with the arrows takeing the white primerbase coat paint for
cresting. I began as normal, sanded the shafts with 150 grit
sandpaper, moved up to 250 resanded, used some steal wool to check
for any bad spots in the wood, use a tack cloth to clean any
lingering dust or bit of steel wool, dipped them in fletch lac
clear. I let the arrows dry for a day, had to take care of some
stuff at the house, and began to prepare for a demo that weekend.
The next night I began dipping the arrows in fletch lac white to
prep for cresting. At this time i noticed that of the 2 dozen shats
only 2-3 where takeing paint correctly. The rest all streak, or have
spots that the paint will not take on the shafts at all no matter
how many times i dip them, I am at a total lose on what to do.
I have tried resanding, useing thinner to make sure there was
nothing on the shafts, re dipped in blue clear in case there was
something wrong with the regular clear, and i am still haveing the
same streaks and bare spots. HELP!!! anyone have any advice at
