(Glueing feather) - arrow constuction
- I have always had excellent results with Minwax stains and Duco cement, but
when I first started fletching I had real trouble with the glue letting go.
The real secret to getting the fletches to stay on is in the prepping prior
to gluing. The method I use is to give the fletch end of the shaft a light
sanding and then clean that area with a quick wipe with rubbing alcohol.
In the past two years, I have had only one glue-related failure since then!
