    Had a pm today reminding me that I posted about taking pictures of some simple jigs to use in making broadheads. Here they are.

    The jig for cutting the slot into the ferrule (steel in this case) is just a small block of wood with a hole drilled in it to accept an old arrow shaft. I've got a thumb screw to hold the shaft in place.



    I use the base of a router attachment of the Dremel to get the blade at the right angle for the slot.



    Here's the ferrule after I cut it out.



    The blade can be made from an old saw blade.



    Here's the blank cut out.



    Here's a short video of the head spinning after I cleaned up the edges. Haven't welded it in yet or sharpened it. Don't pay attention to the ferrule it looks like it wobbles bad, but that's just because I sanded down an old field tip on the belt sander and the black oxide didn't come off even. Watch the out side of the blades to see it spin.



    After I weld it I'll even up both sides and sharpen it using a jig very similar to the one shown in this thread. I used these pics because they are so much better than the ones I took

    Well, I rigged up a quick shaping/sharpening jig for the sander that doesn't need allowance for the ferrule. Blank will be added to ferrule after shaping, then touched up.

    Blank locked into jig.



    At work.

    These are homemade heads I have in my collection. As you can they are not all mine but come from people across the country and far into the past. The Greenemier date to the 1950s
