Archery Equipment Beginners Guide : Using Hot Melt to Repair Your Bow & Arrows


Hello! My name is Harold Hall, Ft. Lauderdale
Archers in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and today we are going to talk about some of the supplies,
and equipment that you would use for archery. On behalf of Expert Village I would like to
welcome you. Another piece of equipment is what’s called hot melt this is used in conjunction
with a torch here which you heat your tips and this is an adhesive that helps you put
your arrows together. You could use it on screwing tips, you could use it on gluing
tips, it is very important; the type of glue that you use is also very important. Some
is what is called a high heat, some of is a low heat depending on where you are shooting
and what you are shooting into you have to use, would determine the style of you know
adhesive that you want to use. This is the torch which you just light it, heat it up,
heat up your components and put it together.

  • I was expecting to see you actually do the heating of the hot melt. How much do you heat it and shove the point in the shaft? What technique is best to "shove" the point into it. Talked the talk, but didn't walk the walk. 

  • Oh, I was expecting some usable information like in what situation are either of the two briefly described types of melt glue used. What type of torch etc. Why not a demonstration or at least an explanation of how to use the product. What a disappointment this video is.

  • High heat/ low heat, what nonsense. What you should be telling us is what specific type of glue stick one buys for inserts and knocks, e.g what type of glue stick for hard shiny surfaces, metal to plastic, carbon to metal etc. Not all glue sticks are created equal. One would expect a bit more knowledgeable advice, if one is going to present a video on a your chosen subject.
