It still expands but after about 30 minutes I use my fingernail to remove the excess glue that expanded.

I don't know if you can foot an arrow with an insert in it already, never tried it. Thinking about it I don't think I can do it to my arrows because the lip of the insert rests on the footing. The idea being with the footing firmly glued in place and the insert lip resting on the footing the insert can not be pushed back into the shaft. Otherwise my footing wouldn't make any difference at all.
 
Thanks for the great videos.  I've destroyed many of my 2117 shafts while stumping.

In your post you said the insert lip rests on the footing.  Does sanding the carbon shaft remove enough material to cause the lip of the insert to overlap the aluminum footing? [/b]
I guess so.  Never really thought about it before.  Just know it works.

Thanks very much for making these videos, Pac.  Never thought to use gorilla glue. I will have to give that a go.  Matt

So, does the glue only foam when it is exposed to water. or will it dry just as well w/o water?

I use it without water so it won't foam up.
Just make sure you let it set up long enough, around 24 hours or longer.
