      I have seen people use pencil sharpeners to taper shafts. In some cases
      it works fine but in others the taper is off by a few degrees. One
      problem is that folks see the taper tools and they look like the hand
      pencil sharpeners we sued in school so the think they can save a couple
      of bucks.

        I must be getting different foam than the rest of you. I get 2# foam,
        comes in a 4 1/2 ft x 9 ft sheet, 2 inches thick. I cut them in thirds
        so I get three 3 ft x 4 1/2 ft single layer targets. We have 160#
        crossbows shooting at them with no blow threws. The 4# foam only come
        in 24" x 9'. I've got some but seldom use it. 6#, no way, the
        crossbows barely penetrate it.
