Need Help Identifying these Arrow Shaft Tools
« on: October 11, 2021, 05:28:24 PM »
The tools pictured below came from my Dads arrow making collection of "stuff".  Can anyone help me identify what they are?  Thanks!

  I believe the tool that is red is used for crimping on those old style tips without the use of glue .
  May be called a crimper but not 100% sure of that .
  I have a set that looks like pliers sort of like that with a dial on how deep the crimp is.
 I’ll try to find it and snap pictures so all can see .
  Neat vintage finds there .
 I like to see this sort of stuff and how it was used back then.
  Thanks for sharing and I’ll search for answers .

   Now the Black-tool with the wing nuts I would guess is a serving jig where you would set string in that “V” notch and spool of string on that roller .
   Again this is just a guess but now I’m curious about those tubes or bullet looking pieces thinking the cut out is just a taper tool for your shafts possibly.
 Again just a guess .

Red tool is “Point Knurler” and the bullet looking things may be a Tenon cutter but still working on that one. :dunno:

Keeper believe you got them all correct.

I appreciate the information!  My Dad was really into archery in the 60 - 70's and other than bows made a lot of his own gear.  I still have a number of his arrows that he dipped and crested and his original Smithwick bow.

The three "tubes" on the bottom are shot gun arrow heads.

I think?? (could be wrong) The 3 tubes are "Whistler tips" for flight shooting...  :dunno:

Keefer is correct on the red tool. It is a straight walled field point crimping tool. I have a couple of them that we used in the archery shop back in the 60's.
