Operating Instructions

Cutting perfect fletches from your New Herbs Feather cutter is a simple and easy task as shown in the photos. Place your full length feather in the base along the line up strip.

 

Gently close the lid to hold the feather in place,and give the top plate a wack with a rubber mallet.

Gently close the lid

Give the lid a short quick wack with a Rubber or wood mallet.

Remove your perfect  fletch

Some customers are using their hand instead of a mallet to make the cut. If you use this way you will need to hold the cutter in one hand to absorb the shock while striking the lid with a fist from your other hand.  Do Not use your hand to strike the lid if the cutter is on a table or bench!  It will hurt. If you don't have tough hands ,use the Rubber mallet.

To make the cut with either your mallet or fist you need to make a short quick strike on the lid. Remember you are cutting a feather, not cutting a board or driving a nail.It does not take a lot of force to make a clean cut.

Your "Herbs Feather Cutter" is designed and intended to cut feathers only.Do not use it for any other purpose or damage to the cutter will result and your warranty will be void. Your feather cutter should last for many years with normal use and care.

 To change fletching shapes remove the 2 screws holding the cutter blade and install the new shape blade. Please don't over tighten the screws when changing the blades. Snug is fine. They will not back out.

Your feather cutter is also adjustable within reason by loosening the screws on the base plate  and sliding the base plate up or down.You can make your fletch profile higher or lower, or change the length by adjusting the base plate to create a unique size fletch.If you change shapes and sizes draw a line along the base plate on the wood base and label it for future reference so that you can duplicate the fletches you cut later on.

ALL SHAPES BELOW ARE AVAILABLE IN LENGTHS FROM 3" TO 6" AND HEIGHTS UP TO 3/4".
