How's the arrow making going?
What'd you end up with for equipment?
Don't forget to put a bit of glue at the leading end of each fletch.

Sound like you got yourself set up and a smile on your face.

The Arizona Easy Fletch is a handy, one at a time, jig.
When you start cutting arrows to length. Be sure to deburr the aluminum and lightly square up and clean the carbons before setting the inserts. Hot melt on aluminum and 24 hr epoxy on carbon. Spin test them to be sure they are square.
Don't forget a tad bit of glue at the leading end of each fletch to help keep them from tearing off.
