Default First Time Fletching

All my equipment came in yesterday, so I figured what a better day to start than on this rainy morning. It took me about 2 attempts of fletching one arrow before I started to figure it out. Had to make a few adjustments on the jig. Iím using a Bitzenberger with a straight clamp, but want a slight offset to the right.
It looks like I got them on pretty good, even made one 4 fletch.
Can wait for it to stop raining!

That is good seating on the base, and really good adhesive usage on those. Pay close attention to where you set your vanes, and make sure they all are the same distance from the nock to the back edge. I mark my clamp to make sure I put my vane in the same place every time. You can get screwy flight if there is variation in where they sit.

Looks good, nice way to spend a rainy day. You will really dig launching those that you fletched yourself, good luck.

Hey, just saw that you posted that you got to shoot them today. Felt great right? Making arrows is just about as much fun as shooting them!

Yeah it was cool shooting something you made. There was always a fear that they would be garbage, haha!
