    Wink super glue

    I use super glue on my inserts,but if your a stickler on perfection and you want your glue evenly spead then use a slow drying glue.i have never lost an insert with super glue (the real name brand stuff,not the knock of crap!)goat tuff is good but very exspensive !!! clean inside your arrows with rubbing alchol and your insert before glueing. good luck

    I've had horrible luck with AAE and Gold Tip arrows. I've lost every insert that I used AAE on. I use Goat Tuff and haven't lost a single one yet.

    I ma not sure the brand name of the glue i use but i build alot of arrows for people and have never hada insert pop out. it is a yellow bar looks like clear yellow soap. i take a lighter or butane torch heat up the insert roll the insert on the glue bar and insert into arrow. drys in seconds almost too fast i f you do not insert it fast enough it will dry in about 5 seconds. will try to find name of it for you.

    I promise if you use this technique you will loose every insert.....never use rubbing alchohol....it has oils in it....use a 91% alcohol, you will have much better results.....

    I've used it on my XT's for sometime now. I do swab down the inside of the shaft with "Sunnyside" Lacquer Thinner before I apply the epoxy, and don't run into a problem, even shooting into forzen targets.

    thanks guys, now im going to just replace all the inserts to make sure they are all exactly the same, i cant get them out though, any suggestions? would it be ok to use a flame or some heat source on the field tip to heat up the glue inside?

    best method I've found is take the knock off, and insert a drill bit (no drill attached to it) that is a little smaller diamater then the shaft then swing the arrow downwards so the bit hits the insert hard enough to knock it out

    (I am NOT responsible for injuries or damage caused by flying inserts)

    I have used rubbing alchol on every arrow i every built(and thats alot!!)and neeeevvvvveeeerrrrrrrr had any prob with it.what counts is make sure the inside of your arrow is cleaned before you glue.that glue that you melt is called Ferr-L-Tite,it is a hot melt cement. it has a tough elastic water proof bond. its for wood or aluminum only do not use on carbon, it might melt or weakin the weaves on the inside of your carbon arrow.you can get it from bohning archery.try power bond from bohning archery it works on all shafts and dry's slow.it works wonders for carbon arrows.ill stick to my super glue.
