Nice, I might well find myself using this method...

How are you using heat to insert the new points RabSmith?

I know someone recently that snapped a point off at the barrel and a mate took it to work and used an oxy set on it to heat it and the point just dropped out, dart saved.

Hi Suwon you do not use heat to put the new points in, just stick them in straight after you take old point out. In some rare cases the point might come out, if this happens a little bit of loctite glue at the end of the point does the job. Do so at your own risk but I have never encounter any problem. The darts in photos are Colin Lloyd Pro Stone Black, no probs after with charring.

I can't tell from the picture, are you heating the point or the end of the barrel?

rabsmith2
Hi Shixon, heat the bottom of barrell were the point goes in, for about 3-5 mins.

I have some gold kings got some gold points I want to put in but don't want to send them off.

Have you tried with gold darts? Don't really want to ruin them

Just done these priesly now, a slight discolouring on the dart far right but nothing to bad, went a bit heavy on the glue waheyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Outstanding sir!

Where I live points are $10 and repointing (less cost of points) is $30...

Bearing in mind new Assassins are $50 I figured I'd just throw away my darts when a point broke (or have two spares).

Your excellent idea is exactly what I was looking for ^^

Should you make it to Seoul I've got a beer and a cigar waiting for you
