.Well Hi all I just wanted to say hay. I'm 50 years old and just thinking about a new hobby. I have just completed building a long bow and I'm thinking about making a good knife and some broad heads to go with it. I do things the hard way no extra machines. I get enough of those at work, I'm a CNC operator. Just write a program and push a button. So I got the hankering to go back in time a bit and pound things to shape.

Good to have you on board ProArcher. Making your own broadheads is a great exercise. My boys love their archery and like to convert their target arrows to broadheads all the time. I'm not so sure when they start shooting the targets in the back yard with them and the arrow just cuts through and keeps going.
