If carbon, use the tool to put some ridges inside the shaft. And(probably get yelled at) dont use super glue. Find a good hot glue that can be used on carbons so you can spin it to align broadheads later. If your building hunting arrows with permanent broadheads it wont be a huge deal, I just hate it when shops super glue the inserts.

If Carbons, rough and clean inside shaft. Glue in with a 24 hour slow cure epoxy such as Easton HIT.

If Aluminums Hot melt them in
