    Default Which glue for fletching wood arrows?

    Anyone make a recommendation on glue for installing fletching on wood shafts?

    I was working on some recently and tried two different glues with fair results at best. I tried one of the superglue types and Bohning fletchtite Platinum. Neither worked very well. It took a long time for the glue to set up. I can use accelerator on the superglue type but it seems to make the glue a little brittle.

    Thanks for any advice

    Vanes or feathers ?
    If feathers you could use tape strips...

    I'm not sure I've ever seen wood arrows with plastic vanes on them...

    Chris,

    3Rivers Archery recommends fletching tape or Duco cement.

    Here's a link from their website about building wood arrows:

    Yeah, that's right I forgot about Duco cement...
    You can get a tube of that at any hardware store.
