How I cut Self Nocks

Post by Bounty Hunter » Tue Nov 23, 2010 10:51 am

Here is a video I did on how I cut my self nocks. I know I'm giving away my secrets, but I love helping the do-it-yourself guys and gals. Hope you enjoy and it helps.

Thanks! I ruined a lot of dowl rods getting the nock just the way I wanted them for myself long before I even considered selling any. I wanted a self nock that was as close to a store bought plastic nock as I could get and I truely think they are just as good as any glue on nock.

Thanks for the outstanding video, your nocks are really professional looking and i bet they work just like plastic ones.

As always Derek great video, you mentioned to me before the width, was it 3 or 4 hack saw blades width?
