    Pictures of making lighted nock

    Quote Originally Posted by ToxArch1 View Post
    I have found, after reviewing all the other methods here, that the easiest way to make lighted nocks is a slight adaption of the method that another member here ( ttown ) uses.

    The bow string turns the light on when firing the arrow. You use a jewellers screwdriver in a little side hole to turn it off. So you don't have to worry about things like - pulling the nocks out; loose nocks; lining up the fletchings; damaging the light when turning the nock; etc.

    And you don't need to modify the light in any way. And you only use one nock per light.

    I have used this method so far to make a dozen lighted nocks without a single failure. It is super quick, and they work every time.

    I use this method with Easton Uni Bushings with Easton Super nocks but this will also work on Bohning Signature nocks and others (although the Bohning Blazer Double Lock nock is a little borderline too small in diameter).

    First you drill a 1/8" hole all the way up through the nock as a pilot drill (this helps prepare the way for the bigger drill). You can hold the nock in an Easton Super Nock tool to stop it spinning while drilling. Be gentle, don't drill too aggressively.

    Then you drill 11/64" all the way up through the nock, only just into the string nocking area (you just need to break through to get a full diameter).

    Then you drill 1/16" at right angles, all the way through, in the body of the nock, near the string area so that - on the Easton Super nock - the hole just about touches the top of the "S" symbol.

    Then deburr all the holes.

    Use epoxy glue on the light around the arrow end (insert dry first so you will know where to put the glue). Insert the light into the nock so that the metal part of the light is only just showing in the side hole and the LED is visible in the string part of the nock. The string needs to be able to push this down).

    Once the epoxy is dry (5 minutes), the job is done.

    Now I know the above may sound a little complex, but once you have done one you will see how easy it actually is.

    I have attached a jewellers screwdriver to my release so I always have it "on hand" (pun intended).

    Here are some photos of the process.

    After the glue has dried (I would give it a few hours)
    you can turn it on by pushing the LED down with the
    screwdriver (only to test) and turn it off by inserting
    the screwdriver into the side hole and pushing the LED back up

    So the string pushes the led down to turn it on? Then you use the pick to turn it off?

    Hello very nice.

    Do have just one question.

    1/16 drill bit just touches the top of the S

    ? How did you establish the distance down.For the top of the S.

    Yes, the string pushes the LED down when firing, you turn it off with the screwdriver.

    The "S" is embossed on the Easton Supernock. So when I was setting the light up in the nock, the neck of the light happened to line up with the "S".

    With other nocks it would be a case of measuring the correct position.

    Thought I'd post a couple pics of a stand I made last week. Put it in a tree today and have some things that I need to change, but it'll work for this season.

    Bow press - low cost and versatile

    Here's my version of a low cost bow press which I can also use to change limbs. The stand folds up and the whole thing fits in my car boot / trunk.

    Draw Board

    I bought the spring balance but I had everything else lying around, including the old boat winch and silver spray paint.
    I tried a pulley system but the winch is so much easier to use.

    Arrow Saw and Bow Vise

    I mounted the vise I bought on a metal fold up saw horse I bought from ALDI.
    I had room for an arrow saw so I made one and mounted it on the same stand. The dremel drill/saw attaches to the flexible shaft so I can take it off and use it for other things.
    The whole thing folds up and stows away easily or hangs on the wall.

    I did that about 25 years ago when I had Afrin bottles laying around. LOL Except I used chalk powder from a snap line.

    Now, instead of carrying the bottle, I just glue a 6 inch piece of unwaxed dental floss to the inside of the top limb of my bow. Make it a little fussy so it gets VERY sensative. I don't have to move anything but my eyes to see which way the wind is moving, It moves at the slightest breeze. Been doing that for about 15 years now.

    Stay Safe,

    What did you use to wrap this? This is a great Idea. I was going to build something like this, but use 1/4" plywood and bend it, not sure if it would bend enough though.
