Hey Rob,

I have some wild turkey feathers dad gave me. I'd like to dye them a bright color so they would show up better for flu-flus. I'm gonna strip them and do the spiral like yours.

Any suggestions?

first use a high quality dye like this.

and make sure you peel the feathers so there is no quill left on them and order some fletching tape

you need to super glue and clamp on the feather the first quarter inch at the top in the pittch(angle) you want them to be fletched. ( actually put the fletch tape on the feather before you glue it on the shaft) once the glue is dry peel the fletch tape and twist then just glue the other end and clamp!!

Thanks guys, there are some guys in our church that can help me as well. My only concern is costs. Any thoughts on the equipment in making arrows?
