Do not attempt to shoot damaged shafts as they may fail causing injury to yourself or damage your bow. If you find any shaft to be damaged in any way please discard it immediately.
A. Cut shafts to length with a high-speed cut-off saw blade like our new Diamond Blade using the Apple cutoff tool. It is a good idea to set a vacuum cleaner hose next to the cutoff tool in order to collect much of the dust from the cutting. Make sure you use a NIOSH approved dust mask and eye protection, such as safety googles, when cutting arrow shafts.
B. Clean the ends of each shaft with denatured alcohol. It is important to clean out all carbon dust from the inside of the shaft for good adhesion.
C. Depending on the requiements of installing your inserts, you can use hot melt glues in order to adjust your broadheads (but expect to lose inserts), quick drying glues (cyanoacrylates) such as Goat Tuff (make sure you can push the insert in immediately and once the inserts are in, do not expect to be able to move them), or two part epoxy (can adjust your broadheads once!).
