Though I've made the arrows and arrow heads, I decided to added arrowheads for those who want to continue to use Skeurs due to being lighter weight than plastic arrows. If you so choose to use the Skeurs instead, I've added a new arrow head that will fit the tip of the skeurs and just add a little bit of glue to it so the tip stays on.
As we all know Skeurs are not very straight and well, when you want to show off a cool bow like the one designed by DonStick3 you want it to shoot nice, straight and accurate if all possible.
I'll try to come up with a few different styles. I'll be uploading bigger arrow heads that will work with current arrow shafts. Keep checking back for add-ons.
PRINTING NOTE- I had problems on ends of arrows raising from bed. USE RAFTS and they should print just fine. I have printed 4 arrows so far with no issues after using Rafts. Also I enabled support. There will be a small piece of support easy to get where the threading area is located.
I also printed arrow solid infill. This way gives arrow some weight for flight, also more durable and not as subtle to break during threading. You can play around with settings see what you like best.
Carbon Fibre PLA may be worth trying for arrows or PETG which I have not tried any of these. Then again, I'm not going bear hunting with this bow either :) well I may have shot a couple grizzleys on paper targets.
I decided to create some arrows. I created arrows close the Skeurs size at approximately 286mm + 15mm arrowheads and then created a hollow area so you can make your thread inside the arrow shaft. The threading only goes 7mm deep.
I also created arrow heads which have a threaded barrel of 7mm. You will also need to thread this.
You will want to thread at 3mm same as a M3 bolt.
I used Tap & Die set which came as a kit for 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7mm made by Irwin Tools. I'm sure any type of metric Tap and Die set will work.
Be very gentle and patient as you create the thread in the arrow itself as you only have about 1mm diameter. I have shot several arrows made from these files and they are holding up just fine.
DO NOT apply too much presure when screwing on arrowhead to the arrow or it will crack. Just thread the arrowhead best you can and arrow and hand tight without overdoing it.
- 5 blade heads.
- To be threaded at 3mm

Get my modified arrow rest. (Only if your arrows are shooting toward the right or your arrow tips are facing to the right when resting on the arrow rest)
