It occurred to me that when I sharpen heads, I’m always concerned about removing more material from one side than the other. I get too easily lost in my ‘count’ of the strokes, and the point’s tip in time can be ground off-centre.
So…..what if, what if, what if – :idea:- one were to scribe or stamp an axial centre-line upon the steel blank, from base to tip? This would give a visual reference point for sharpening, and even for aligning the broadhead to the shaft (a glue-on in this case).
That sounds like a very good idea. I suppose that’s one of the reasons I like Ace Standards so much; the ferrule extends so far toward the tip that it’s very easy to see if I’m starting to get off line one way or the other.
