Nocking point build along
« on: January 23, 2005, 06:20:00 PM »
I put together this little nocking point build along for those who are trying to learn about this stuff.

Here are the materials.

   

Bow sqare (should be in every archer's kit), Super Glue, serving thread and server, masking tape.

Mark the spot where you want to nocking point to be and wrap with masking tape. Build it up so it's a 1/16" thick or a little more.

   

I'm putting the nocking point on below where the arrow will sit... because that's the way I do it!
Simple enough to do this the other way if you like.

Start like you are going to reserve the string about 3" below the nocking point. Lay the tag end of the serving thread so that you wrap over it and do that by at least 10 turns.
Fold it back at that point and continue up the string.

I had one before we got started too Curt, but I bit my tongue. Ouch.  Glad I did now, I think I'll hold all questions till the end of class.

When you reach the masking tape apply a drop of thin super glue.
Hold until it drys, then reverse the direction of your wrap about 6 turns. As you add each "layer" of serving material, add a dot of super glue.

When you've got about 4 layers, cut the serving thread and rub the end into the nocking point with more glue.

Done like this I have never had a need to tie off the end of the serving material... it just doesn't come undone!!

Seems like a lot of trouble for a nock point.
 Certainly would stay where you put it though.
There sure is alot of air around a squirrel...eeyup.

One of the neat things about this is you can take an emory board and smooth everything off as smooth as you want.

Cut off all tag ends... if you cut them with about an eighth hangin out and burn carefully with a Bic or candle (careful now CK...fire!)
That seals the end of the serving and will keep it from ever slipping.

   

Oh yeah! Pull off the tape.

Wow.  I've never seen one done like that before Charlie.  I take it this is more of a permanent type nocking point, as opposed to the tie on adjustable ones?  Pretty interesting.  I love these tutorials, I always find a different way of doing things.  Thanks Charlie.

Minuteman... I don't believe in "slap dash" work when I'm working with ANY aspect of my equiptment. I can invest 5 minutes for this project and NEVER have to do it again on this string.

Never saw it like that. You're on to something there.
Why so much wrapping? Do you like the thicker string to grip?
Looks purdy too.

Charlie, does it matter which direction you wrap the thread?  

Er, it is ok for questions NOW isn't it????  :bigsmyl:

I've come to believe that the keys to shooting well for me are good form, trusting the bow to do all the work, and having the confidence in the bow and myself to remain motionless and relaxed at release until the arrow hits the mark.
