    Dude, this takes way too many tools and supplies. you should do one that takes materials from around the house.

    Not interested. I do not want to make a video on how to simply make an arrow. I wanted to show others how to make a quality arrow that flies true. I think I did that. I believe that one can not have too many tools, and the right tools make a huge difference.

    As for the draw weight max for these arrows I have a 54# bow and I have not broken an arrow in the two years I have used them. I would make sure that I use either straight grain shafts or shafts with run off pointing forward on the bow side and not the hand side. I am sorry I can not give you an exact weight but I would say that any bow 55# and under with 5/16 inch poplar shafts should be relatively safe and heavier for 11/32 shafts. I hope this helps.

    It seems that I can not reply to your comments individually so I will try it this way. It would take about $60 initially to make these because you would have to invest in an arrow fletching jig. after that it would cost around $25 to make 6 arrows with some supplies left over for next time. I get all my supplies from www.3riversarchery.com
