I would suggest getting a red Bohning jig (like $30) It is plastic but works awesome. It's NOT the blazer jig. As far as glue, Only glue I use is Goat Tuff but.....it dries really FAST so make sure your fletching is fully contacting your arrow before you apply glue then lock the jig angle down. Now put on the glue and run your finger on the vane to ensure a even coat then put your clamp on and slide it down onto the shaft. It will be dry in about 1 minute..:wink:( I use a right helical clamp)

Sounds like a lot but it's not really. Once you get it set up it goes really fast :) I can do a dozen arrows in about 1 hour.

bitzenburg jigs, yes they are a bit more expensive, but I think they're worth it, and they will last forever. I have 2 of them, and I use Bohning fletch tite platinum. Best stuff I've used thus far.

Make sure you clean the shaft really good before applying wraps or vanes, and also clean the inside of the arrow before puttin in your inserts.
