Comments about Arrow Taper Guide Block:

When I read that it was made of "long lasting laminated hardwood" I must say it rang a bell I first heard when I was 12 (1959) and ordered a laminated boomerang from a certain now defunct company in Waseca, Minn. (yes, that one). It too was made out of plywood, stained and finished plywood but still, plywood. The block is a bit on the small side with little room to grip with one hand while you feed the arrow shaft with the other. Take care or you will have a quick but not scheduled manicure from the spinning disc sander. Once I mounted it to yet another, larger sheet of plywood it was more stable and worked fine. From an Instagram post from Rose City Archery I saw their tapering device made from rigid copper tubing, I will be making a similar device.

      Comments about Arrow Taper Guide Block:

      This simple jig helps me to get accurate tapers on wooden shafts with a small step that will allow the pile to come flush to the shaft. Using the pencil sharpener style of tool (not knocking these at all as I use them to get the taper cut in the first place) the rear of the pile always has a small grove just behind where the taper is still visible. This can be filled with adhesive depending on what you use, but with this jig I can smooth down the taper to leave a step sufficent to get a flush fit. Using fine sandpaper on a cork sanding block this can be done by hand rather than use power tools.

      Comments about Arrow Taper Guide Block:

      The tapers are accurate, however, the block is small. I added a piece of plywood to the bottom that can be clamped to the sander. You really have to watch your fingers, because they are pretty close to the disc. I recently switched to Douglas Fir from POC and my Tru-Center was chewing them up. This worked great, all of the tapers were true.
