Repair Arrow Inserts with Mister Glue

A little while ago I purchased a compound bow.  I’d have a recurve bow that I’d been using from time to time. Watching others accuracy with compound bows made me want one.

I finally purchased one a few months ago and love it.  We have enough property out back so I set up some straw bales with rubber mats and cardboard to shoot against. 

I’m improving much more quickly with this bow.

The arrowheads take a beating and a couple of the inserts that hold the arrowheads came out.  I used Mister Glue to reaffix them.  The glue itself would have likely been fine but wanting to forestall them coming out again, I also put a touch of Accelerator on one side first.  The Accelerator is not absolutely necessary in this instance.  I've just used it here as demonstration. 

Important (Very Important!!)

When you have the Accelerator applied and the glue to the other side and are going to place the insert into the arrow, be quick.  If you get it part way in and hesitate, well, that’s likely where it is going to stay. 

Also, after jamming the insert in, hold the arrow so that any excess glue runs into the arrow instead of back into the arrowhead.  It sets extremely quickly so this will only be necessary to do for a few seconds.

I haven’t yet tried fletching my own arrows with Mister Glue.  Others have successfully.  I’m not quite there yet.

Please let me know if you have any questions about Mister Glue and its application.  I’ll answer as best as I can.
