    I need tips and other parts for my home made bolts, or where to buy these parts, also some guild on putting it together.
    lots of thanks for any help hag.

    I forgot to add my bolt size is 3/8 of an inch OD.

    You can get standard field-points for wooden shafts, as well as some nifty little short or long bodkin points from Three Rivers Archery....find 'em online.
    Also Historic Enterprises has a selection of beautiful points, including diamond-section quarrel-points for larger diameter shafts.  HE's points aren't cheap but they are mighty fine. Do a web search for details. Geezer
