What Glue to Use?
What glue should be used to attach nocks and point inserts with aluminum arrows?
I use to use fletching glue, but was told that is not a good idea.
Is it okay to use a hot glue gun for nocks and point inserts?
I have Fletchtite Platinum and a hot glue gun.

I use Loc-Tite super glue control gel for inserts & fletchings

I believe you'll be better off with hot melt. The instant set glues are usually very brittle and a hard impact can break the bond. The epoxy types (at least the slow cure varieties) work well, but can be nearly impossible to remove without damaging the insert.
Best of luck to you.

Hot melt for inserts, and Fletchtite for nocks -- been using those for 30 plus years and they work just fine

Hotmelt for points, homelt for pin and nock ADAPTERS. Nocks don't get glue.

Thanks for the input everyone!
I am going to use hotmelt for all the inserts, and a small amount of Fletchtite Platinum on the nocks.
I will post later how it turned out.
