I made mine with a drill press, I cut a piece of aluminum rod and put it in the press. Then while its running I used a large flat file to grind it. Use some wd-40 or equivelent to keep the file from clogging up with aluminum. When you get the point you want stop I think I also use some sandpaper or something to get any rogh spots off to.
Then when you are done with the tip, what I did was cut the other end on an angle to mount to my toe plate. I then pop riveted them on from the inside so you wouldn't see how they are attached. They feel like they are welded on.
Hope that helps some
Ya ... what he said !!!!! I just used these tips and cut some 3/8" aluminum rod down and spun them on the drill press with a file and some fine sand paper and I think they look great .I'll post some pics later . Now how do we cut those angles? Dremel ?..... hacksaw ?.....
O K progress report . I have the darts ( how do I cut them on an angle ? ) I have the bracket/bar . How to attach the darts? I could drill a hole down the center of the dart and thread/tap it . I have small machine screws and LocTite to secure them . Problem ...screw head wont sit flush .... unless ( just thinking out loud ) i grind off the offending screw head at the back to make it flush . What do you guys think ? Oh ... and how to drill the hole through the bracket/bar ? It also has to be on an angle . What is the best way to attach this bracket once it is done ? Oh just in case you're wondering the bar isnt finished and it needs to be cut off at the sides .HELP !!!
:facepalm i crushed myn walking to a cut off tree... that was funest for em, fixed em, and during a performance one of teh screws sprang lose, so that finished of teh right side toe spikes, i crushed the left foot ones when i had to walk on stage, where they got under neath my foot sole...
never made a new set.
though i must say, urs looks alot stronger then myn.:cheers
