Improve your storm pointing
Hi all.
What we look for with storm pointing is to avoid this:

these squared/hard noses makes your darts to bounce out more often, and to destroy flights quickly.

Before instaling storm points Ive tapered dart noses.
Just grip your darts by their old points with a drilling machine. Rotate it, and press the nose with a file. I wear plastic glasses, and I tune the speed of the drill very slow, you can almost see the dart rotate. You dont need crazy speed, and it is way long safer. As Ancient Darters says, a Bench or a Drill Press would be ideal. I do it manual...

This operation will maximize the effect or storm points. The nose will be in line with the point.
Before storm repoint you must read this marvellous thread:

In order to suit the red zones of the pic, after taking out old points and before installing new storm points, we must make some room in the external mouth of barrels, not inside, just the outer edge. This operation achieves a gapless transition between points and barrels! Lets see:

Then we proceed to repoint. First we take away points.

Then you put the storm points:

 Combination of tapering noses and storm point makes big improve!
It takes just a minute tapering noses, and you get a beautiful line between point and barrel with zero gap!

Brilliant guide Pac! Definitely a +1 from me!  Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Edit to add: With no offence Pac Guests cannot see images in the messages.

Use a drill press, or if it's a handheld drill, secure it in a bench vise. Also, squarely chamfer the lip instead of angling the drill bit and turning the barrel. It's a lot safer that way.

Just make the point hole wider with a 4-5 mm drill. you can do it straight with drill in your hand, no tool needed !
Other modifications are personal and I would not advise that to everybody.
may all the doubles be with you

Very nice! Thanks for that. I don't know why i've not thought of tapering my darts with a drill before myself.

+1 from me very informative and photos top billing. I've replaced points several times and had no problem without filing it but I can see that's a good idea if they are not smooth. Like the looks of the Amberjack. I did mine in gold storms as well and removed the paint

Its my fault not to be especific. In my dremel and in my drilling tool I put very slowly, you can almost see the dart rotating. And I wear plastic glasses. Just for security. Althoug, the rotating speed is so low, that you can touch harmless. You are correct, security is in first place.

I prefer a faster speed actually.  Guests cannot see images in the messages.

Depends on operator I guess. 

Always, safety first.  Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
