If you get hand spined shafts they should be spined against the edge of the “grain”, so that is how you should orient the nock and cock feather. According to the old standards, arrows should be fletched so the pointers on the top of the shaft point away from the archer/toward the point. That is how I do it. Some fletchers don’t believe it matters. Electronic spine testers don’t care either.
Shrimp, IMO, Duco is the fletching glue of choice for most wood arrow finishes. Saunders NPV works well, too.
