THe safest way I've found to remove glue-in points from carbon arrows is to boil them in water and twist them out slowly. You may have to keep them hot by boiling and then twisting a little at a time. This will keep you from delaminating the wrapped carbon inside the shaft.
It works for me 4.0
Have some one hold a flame to the tip while you keep a pulling presure wth pliers and the shaft in your other hand.If it seems to not come out any further than it is,push it back towards the shaft and pull out again,try turning the shaft while pulling also.Hope this is helpful,always works for me.>>---skip-->
I had that problem. what i did was i let the tip of the arrow sit in acetone for about 3 mins. Then ran over to my clamper vice, squized the field piont and pulled it out. It worked and no
damage was done to my carbon arrow.
Heard a neat trick a few days back about getting points out of carbon arrows. The person was relating this to another customer at a pro shop, take the nock off, hold the arrow pointed upright or level, select a drill bit that will just fit inside the shaft and stick it in, then swing the shaft sharply towards the ground (point end towards ground). Repeat a couple times as needed. Allegedly the drill bit will strike the point with enough force to pop it out of the shaft without having to heat anything up and without damaging the shaft itself.
Anyways, just something I heard. Since I hot melt everything I don't have a problem getting points out, lol !
