As the title implys, how do you guys trim your cones? When I'm trimming I put the cone in the muzzle of my blowgun, mark it with a sharpie, then trim it to fit with scissors. This works pretty well but it is slow and alittle inconsistent. Is there a better way? Sorry if this has been answered before but I have been through this section front to back and did not find an answer.
My Cold Steel darts are more constant in sizing, but they are not as good as some of the cones I make. about 3 out of 5 cones I make shoot awsome, the other 2 out of 5 are usually too small and are unuseable.
Same problem here, consistency is a problem. One thing I want to start doing is using a plumb Bob, or something similar to form my "grocery bag" brown paper cones around. That way all my cones would be the same length. I mark my cones in the end of my blowgun tube also.
I've seen cones made from milk jugs, heated with a propane torch, and pressing a plumb Bob into the hot plastic to form cones.Then you sharpen a piece of tubing your blowgun pipe is made out of, like a hole punch and use it to cut the cones from the milk jug. Thought I would pass this along, I couldn't get the hang of it.
